Experience Georgia quail hunting as it has been done on most of the private plantations for over 150 years. If quail hunting is anything, it is driven by tradition. And for those who believe in traditions, there is only one way to hunt quail… from horseback and mule-drawn wagon. Quail hunting from horseback is as deeply imbedded in the southern plantation psyche as grits and cornbread, and the mule-drawn wagon is an iconic symbol of the grand plantation quail hunting social experience.
Located in deep in the heart of south Georgia quail country, we provide our guests with an authentic experience that does justice to the history and tradition. At Pine Hill Plantation we manage over 6000 acres of longleaf pine forest with wiregrass understory… the original quail habitat as it was more than 200 years ago. These forests are some of the finest habitat in all of south Georgia and they are native home to hard-flying wild quail that have to be hunted and are not merely shot.
When groups of friends and guests go out for the day in search of quail, there is a lot of ground to cover – the need for fresh dogs, lunch in the field, refreshments – all of which is traditionally borne by horse and mule. Though it may be far more expedient these days to substitute the internal combustion engine, there is something ethereal about the long horseback procession moving slowly through the stands of longleaf pine, the huntmaster in the lead watching for the point, and the big mule-drawn wagon jangling along behind, with fresh dogs in the wagon’s dog boxes and the more comfort-minded plantation guests enjoying the social aspects of the hunt from the padded wagon seats.
The quail hunting at Pine Hill Plantation is a true wild bird experience. Extensive work is done to optimize quail habitat on the over 6000 acres of longleaf pine habitat with wiregrass understory and interspersed with crop fields. Because we release young birds in late summer to supplement the wild quail population, these birds have time to become assimilated into the wild quail population during the fall shuffle.
Thus, the quail flushed at Pine Hill Plantation fly like bobwhites should, with explosiveness and speed. Sometimes the quail are out moving and easy to find, other times they are shy and aloof. But, they are there… and when they flush with lightning speed, it brings an excitement and challenge that reminds you of why you love this wingshooting sport!
At Pine Hill Plantation we live the traditions of authentic south Georgia plantation quail hunting… and so can you. Come experience Pine Hill Plantation!!!
