Fork Upland Hunts
Quail hunting is as deep a southern tradition as sweet tea, cornbread & grits. It is revered as the finest of the winged shooting disciplines and the most famous. No other sport intermingles the art and beauty of this ballet done correctly. It all starts with the proper cover and habitat. Next, you add the art of watching a seasoned gun dog work. Then you hear the rush & explosion of a fleeing covey. Then…… well that's the Fork Plantation experience.
At Fork Plantation we strive to provide an old world Plantation style hunt from the turn of the century. Our typical hunt will have you walking cropland, mild brush, and thinned hardwoods in pursuit of elusive coveys. Our hunt will have your party, guide, and dog walking about a mile and countless acres for your bounty.
October 1 to March 31
