Georgia Quail Hunting – enjoy true Quail hunting on a 2,000 acre Southern Plantation
The only native Georgia quail is the northern bobwhite, also known as the Virginia quail or bobwhite quail. This bird is widespread throughout eastern North America, and can be found in many eastern and central states as well as in Mexico and even on several Caribbean islands. Isolated populations can also be found in a few northwestern states. Despite its wide range and generally high numbers, population decreases have led to some concern about conservation. The state of Georgia is contemplating tightening regulations in the near future. For hunters interested in enjoying the fantastic opportunities available now, there’s no time like the present.
Northern bobwhites have gray-mottled red-brown feathers and slate-gray tails. The male can easily be distinguished from the female by his facial coloration: he has a white face with a black stripe running across the cheeks and under the eyes, as well as black borders around the top of the head and at the base of the neck; her face is buff where his is white and red-brown where his is black. Just look for that flash of white and black if you want to quickly identify a male.
The typical bobwhite quail is about 10 inches long with a wingspan of approximately 14 inches; most weigh between ¼ and ½ pound. Males are larger than females.
The Georgia quail hunting season usually lasts from mid-November until the middle of March.
Hunting is performed with well-trained dogs on 2,000 acres of private land. Northern bobwhites are notoriously hard to frighten, so they may not flush until you or the dog practically step on them—be prepared for a surprise! They will usually stick low to the ground during flight and rarely travel more than a short distance on the wing. If you miss your shot, keep a good eye on your bird and you should be able to chase it down again quickly.
Our outfitters offer half-day excursions and day-long hunts; eight quail are included in the former while the latter takes full advantage of Georgia’s loose bag limit, with up to a dozen birds included in the price. Gun rental is included as well.
