Welcome to Gopher Plantation
Hunting, Lodging, and Southern Hospitality at its Finest!
The Gopher Plantation is located in the Southeast near Millwood, Georgia and is comprised of over 10,000 acres. The plantation offers diverse topography that provides an optimum wildlife habitat. Intensive management has created an abundance of wildlife seldom available to the public. It creates a touch of heaven to the hunter after being micromanaged for over 40 years and being commercial and open to the public for 25 plus years.
The Plantation is home to a wide array of game species found throughout the habitat in pine plantations, oak ridges, Carolina bays, river flood plains, palmetto, and wiregrass ridges along the Satilla River and 17 Mile River. Arnold Bay, consisting of some 200 acres, is centrally located within the compound and provides an ideal habitat and refuge for wildlife. The Gopher Plantation crew plants over 200 acres of food plots a year to ensure optimum feed throughout the fall and winter months. The crew also conducts control burns on different tracts every year to optimize usable habitat for wildlife. If you are looking for a place to Deer, Hog, Quail, Turkey, or Waterfowl hunt you’ve found the right place.
What makes the property so appealing to wildlife is the Gopher Plantation is located between the Satilla River to the West and the 17 Mile River to the East. With miles upon miles of river frontage there is never a shortage of game. We are now running and offering deer hunts on over 8,000 acres. Hog hunts and turkey hunts are still conducted over the entire 10,000 private owned acres. The Planation boast 5 quail fields ranging in size up to approximately 50 acres on one hunting course. Turkey hunting is very limited and books out years in advance. There are 4 ponds located on the property that are ideal for fishing. Fishing is a great activity for non-hunters or corporate parties that are looking for different activities. At the Gopher Plantation we pride ourselves on being family and kid friendly and we’ll do everything in our power to ensure that everyone has a safe, fun, and successful adventure.
With the multitude of deer stands situated on over 8,000 privately owned acres we commercially deer hunt of the total 10,000 acres we can cater to any deer hunter novice or experience.
We can cater to any hog hunter novice or experienced by offering spot and stalk preserve hunts, thermal hog hunting, and free-range hunting from stands.
