The morning quail hunt begins at approximately 9:00 A.M. and lasts until noon. The afternoon hunt begins at 2:00 P.M. and lasts until dusk. Lunch is included in the price of the full day hunt, or with reservations, can be provided with a half-day hunt. A hunting party consists of one guide with at least four dogs and two hunters per party ( three maximum). The guide will pick the hunters up in front of the lodge in a pickup truck or jeep and proceed to one of the 8 quail courses. He parks in the center of the area and the hunt begins. Also available are specially equipped jeeps and golf carts for hunters with difficulty navigating the terrain on foot. At the conclusion of the hunt, harvested birds can be exchanged for freshly cleaned birds from the previous day.

Season pass holders may come and go as they see fit to obtain their Turkey's (must follow Georgia Big Game License requirements throughout the season). Turkey season runs from Mid-March to Mid-May. Georgia limit and license required. Licenses are not available at the Pro-Shop. Lodging and meals are available for additional fees.
Continental Pheasant Shoots
These shoots have been very popular since we started them in the 2000 hunting season. Pheasants are released from a 25 foot metal tower, constructed from the top portion of an old water tower, atop a hill varying in elevation from 40 feet on the east side to 20 feet on the west side. Shooting stations are positions in a circle around the tower, which is concealed from view by small trees and bushes. Shooters rotate around the tower after ten pheasants are released making different shots at each position. Variable winds make shooting extremely challenging. Dog handlers with Labrador Retrievers are positioned behind the shooters to retrieve downed birds. At the conclusion of the hunt, the total number of birds harvested is divided by the number of shooters and each is given an equal amount of dressed birds.
White-Tail Deer Hunts
We offer two and three day packages on our deer hunts. In Archery, Primitive Weapons and Rifle. All hunts include lodging, meals, professional guides and transportation to and from stands. Mornings start with a continental breakfast before sunrise and transportation to your stand. At which you can decide if you would like to be picked-up for lunch or stay in your stand. After dark you will be picked-up and taken back to the lodge for a home made southern supper. If you have a deer down, we will pick it up or assist you in finding it. We have several game processing options. Georgia Big Game License is required to hunt Deer/Turkey and is the responsibility of the hunter to obtain this license prior to the hunt. Licenses are not available at the Pro-Shop.
