Our hunting guides – the best in the business.
One thing that really sets Rio Piedra Plantation apart from other quail hunting lodges is our team of highly skilled quail hunting guides. They’ve all been through extensive training and will use this knowledge to make sure your hunt is seamless and successful from start to finish.
Our quail hunting guides know the terrain, where the best cover is, where the food sources are, in short, where the birds are likely to be. They also know the idiosyncrasies and body language of each individual dog, and they know the telltale signs to watch for even before the dogs get “birdy.” They work in tandem with the pointers to keep you in a steady stream of flushes. Not only are they experts in the sport - excellent at handling the dogs, helping you find the perfect shot, and offering quail hunting safety tips - but they’re also really fun to be around. Many of our quail hunting guides have been at Rio Piedra Plantation over a decade, some close to two decades, and might just feel like family by end of your stay.
We keep our hunter-to-guide ratio low to ensure the best possible quail hunting experience for you. You and one other hunter will be placed with your own quail hunting guide during each hunt. Your hunting guide’s job is simple: to help you experience the best hunt possible while keeping you safe. He can also help you improve your shooting skills, offer guidance on how to line up the perfect shot, or just be there to tell a one-liner at the perfect time. Bottom line: our hunting guides can make the difference between just another hunt and an unforgettable experience.
