The trip has been booked for months and now the smell of gunpowder and sound of quail wings cutting through the air are just a few days away. It is time to pack up so here is a list of some essentials needed to enhance the hunting experience.

  • Chaps or Brush Pants
  • Rubber boots for morning hunts
  • Hunting boots for afternoon hunts
  • Blaze orange cap or vest – MUST be worn while quail hunting
  • Sunglasses or shooting glasses

Don’t have some of these items? We got you covered with items from our Pro Shop. Call ahead and we will have these items waiting in your room upon your arrival. We can also personalize items if ordered five days prior to arrival. 

Hunting License

Customers 16 and older must have either a valid Georgia hunting license or a valid Georgia shooting preserve license to hunt Quail Country Plantation. Before or after arrival, customers may purchase a preserve license through several channels: online at , onsite, or by telephone at 1-800-366-2661. As a preserve operator, we need evidence of the valid hunting license or a Temporary Authorization Number (TAN) for a hunting license given to the customer by the Georgia Call Center. As a licensed agent, customers can purchase a license during the initial reservation with us or once on site. We will issue a paper copy from the license book and give the customer the paper license to use as proof of the license while they are hunting on the preserve. All personal information, including a complete Social Security Number, must be completed on the license form so that DNR can check to confirm that the customer had a valid license while they were hunting on the preserve.

What to Expect On Your Hunt

Your guide will meet you with your jeep at the Lodge prior to hunt time and will drive you to the first hunting area. You will dismount and walk with your guide and dogs. When the dogs point, you will load your guns and approach the pointed dogs. Your guide will send in a flushing dog to flush the birds. After shooting, you will unload your guns and the guide and dogs will retrieve the killed birds. You will continue this pattern until your guide takes you to another hunting area. The hunt will last for 3 hours and then the guide will return you to the lodge.
