The Story

The records show that George Hi Plantation, an original land grant by the King of England, has been hunted for Quail prior to the Civil War, and for the last 50 years, the DuBose family has caringly managed George Hi as a truly southern Quail hunting experience for guests, friends and family. The hunting operation is supported by almost 1000 acres of mature Quail habitat, experienced guides, well-trained hunting dogs, new 5 stand for shooting clay targets, four bedroom Quail Cottage, eight bedroom Lake Lodge, private chef and dedicated staff to ensure guests enjoy the perfect southern hunting plantation experience. For Quail hunters, a covey rise over well-trained dogs is an exhilarating sight and the DuBose family remains committed to providing a unique Quail hunting experience. Every year, from October through March, the family opens this spectacular property to hunters from across the nation that come for some of the best Quail hunting in the southeast.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Hunts I returned for my third visit with an afternoon, over night stay and morning hunt. Once again, I experienced superb guides ( Zack and Bryan ) that provided quality dogs for the hunt. Numerous birds were shot including a unique pheasant and of course, many quail missed. Nancy and Doyle provide an exceptional experience going out of their way to ensure a great stay. I look forward to returning and totally recommend George Hi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Quail Plantation! My husband and I just came back from a fabulous weekend hunting quail with friends. My first trip was 2 years ago with a great group of GRITS women and 3 of us just had a reunion, bringing our husbands. Dan and Penny set the tone of grace, care, excellence that is echoed throughout the whole experience. The guides, the cooks, the housekeepers, the dogs, the fields, the lodge are all first rate. We're booking our slots for next year so we don't miss out as the word spreads. George Hi is the place to go if you enjoy excellence and warmth in the field and in the lodge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GO! My friends and I are heading back to Georgie Hi. It will be the 3RD trip this year for 2 of us, 4th overall. Repeat business is the best testimonial that we could ever provide for any hunting trip. Lots to recommend, but #1 is the quality of the quail; they fly hard and far, not at all like typical shooting preserve birds. I hunted wild quail in NJ years ago, when we had them, and I believe that the birds at George Hi rival those. The staff and accommodations are great but we can get that at almost any lodge; we make the trip to hunt, we do that at George Hi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great day afield at George HI Our first trip to George Hi was one to be remembered. Excellent cover, fast flying birds and plenty of them. The staff and guides were extremely accommodating to our wishes. We had just met, but seemed like old friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Hunt and Service I had the decidedly good fortune to hunt at George Hi several times last season. Dan O'Conner and his team went out of their way to make sure every aspect of our visit was perfect. The birds flew great and the guides and dogs were exceptional. Can't wait to return!
