South Georgia Quail Hunting
Rio Piedra offers an unparalleled quail hunting experience for three simple, yet unique, reasons. First, Rio Piedra is located in the geographic heart of the Plantation Belt, thus ensuring an abundance of quail derived from the short, but active, flight patterns between other quail hunting plantations in South Georgia.
Second, our decades old commitment to habitat restoration and conservation has allowed game populations to thrive. Rio Piedra, along with surrounding private Georgia quail plantations, has restored the Long Leaf pine forests last seen over a hundred years ago. Unlike the dense canopies of live oaks and other hardwoods, longleaf pines allow some sunlight to reach the forest floor and thus ensure an abundance of thick ground cover. It’s this cover, wiregrass and broomsedge, that provides both the protection and food sources quail need to flourish. Ultimately, this quintessential habitat enables elevated quail populations and has led many to believe the heydays of bobwhite hunting are no longer in the past, but are now.
Finally, our experienced guides strive to make every hunt memorable and safe. They, along with some of the best pointers, setters and English Cockers in the business, will ensure abundant shooting opportunities that challenge even the most veteran of hunters.
