We started offering guided and non-guided quail hunts to the general public in 1965 (51 years ago). As a licensed commercial shooting preserve we must continually restock or replace birds shot or lost to predators. We are very pleased with the exceptionally strong flying birds that we are liberating now. Many of our customers comment on what strong flying birds we have. Several hunters that have frequented other preserves have told us that ours are the best they have encountered.

Claude “Shorty” Smith, the little man with the big personality, continues to guide with a four-wheeler. A crippling accident did little to slow him down. A great guide with his own excellent dogs continues to be in much demands. His grandson, “Bo”, inherited Shorty’s great love for quail hunting and does a super job of guiding.

Super Over-Nite Accommodations with One of the World’s Great Cooks

We are more than delighted to recommend to our hunters that they stay at the Bunn Ranch next door to Redbone. Carey and Paulette Bunn have meticulously restored a fine old southern home plus a two-story bunkhouse. They didn’t invent southern hospitality, but they sure perpetuate it. $175 per person which includes breakfast, lunch and a fabulous dinner.

2016 Dove Season - Season Pass Only

Once again, we’ll schedule 8 dove shoots throughout the dove season. All shoots will be on Saturday afternoons. For many years we’ve opened our season with a barbecue luncheon. One of the real highlights of the season is our wild game supper normally held on the third Saturday night in October. We always encourage our hunters to have their spouse (and/or significant other) and children meet at our barn following the shoot and enjoy a feast of wild game (especially doves), live musical entertainment, a big bonfire, and great fellowship.

We are pleased to continue to work with the Pippin Brothers, the biggest farmers in this part of Georgia. Thus, we are able to shoot doves over recently harvested corn and millet fields, freshly planted wheat, and sunflowers. We know that doves love sunflowers.
