Quail Hunting Georgia

Quail Hunting Georgia

The Gopher Plantation offers Quail Hunting in Georgia and is located approximately 95 miles from the Jacksonville airport. This makes it very convenient if you’re looking to experience some of the finest quail hunting in the South within driving distance of a major airport. If you are pursuing the thrill of a bobwhite covey rise in plantation cut pines you’ve found the right place. It’s always exciting watching well trained bird dogs point a hidden covey. While you and your quail hunting guide make the approach, a flush dog waits anticipating the command to send the quail heavenward.

Our quail hunting guides are all equipped with the proper training and tools to provide a Southern plantation style quail hunt. While quail hunting at Gopher Plantation the guests can ride on our pull behind dog buggies equipped with bench seats on top. This set up allows the guest to get a bird’s eye view of the plantation on the way to the quail hunting courses. We have 5 quail hunting courses on the property, all of which are manicured and maintained each quail hunting season. Our largest quail hunting course is approximately 50 acres. The quail hunting courses boast beautiful plantation cut pines and great ground cover to offer great shooting opportunities when bobwhites are flushed. The Gopher Plantation crew has food plots planted in these quail hunting courses and sawtooth palmettos dot the landscape as well.

Corporate Quail Hunting in Georgia

Corporate Quail Hunting in Georgia

The Gopher Plantation is perfect for that Corporate Quail Hunting Retreat in Georgia, offering 35 total beds in 3 cabins plus the main hunting lodge. It is also equipped with a game room that doubles as a conference room upon request. Gopher Plantation is unique in that we offer many other corporate hunting retreat opportunities in addition to quail hunting. Many of our past quail hunters have taken advantage of this and added a thermal or spot and stalk hog hunt or taken advantage of the Quail and Duck combination hunt during their stay. Due to offering many other types of hunting we start booking quail hunts in December and run until the end of March.

Quail and Duck Combination Hunts

Quail and Duck Combination Hunts

We offer 3 scheduled Quail and Duck Combination Hunts per hunting season. Normally we do the first scheduled quail and duck combination hunt on the second Saturday in December. The second and third quail and duck combination hunts are normally scheduled for early and late January. If you get lucky enough to get a spot on one of these quail and duck combination hunts you will be in for a treat if you like wing shooting. Years of waterfowl management normally produce an abundance of birds. Most hunters limit out on wood ducks while picking up some additional ducks and geese in certain areas. This quail and duck combination hunt includes lodging and supper the night before the scheduled combination hunt. The hunting guides will meet with the guest and confirm what time to meet in the main lodge for coffee and a continental breakfast.

If you have waders this will increase your chances of being able to wade into some prime spots to catch fast flying wood ducks at daybreak. We also have some other species such as mallards and Canadian geese that make appearances each hunting season. If you only have rubber boots the guides can place you so that you can still get adequate shooting opportunities. After the duck hunt the guest will enjoy a home cooked lunch and then prepare for the afternoon quail hunt. The quail hunt will start at approximately 1:30 PM and last until 5:00 PM. Supper and lodging after the hunt is not provided but can be added if prior arrangements are made.

The price for the Quail and Duck combination Hunts is $850.00 per person

The prices noted for combination hunts include an 8% sales tax.
