The Story

Wynfield Plantation is a wingshooting lodge located in a region in Georgia best known for bobwhite quail hunting, and is surrounded by private plantations. Wynfield Plantation is the embodiment of Southern charm and hospitality. From the moment you step into our rustic hunting lodge, you will be surrounded by the timeless look and feel of a true quail hunting experience. After a long day's hunt, linger here and sip a glass or two of aged whiskey as you visit with old friends or make some new ones. Swap stories, make plans, and get acquainted with a legendary way of life. After an exciting day in the field, join us at the main lodge for drinks and hors d'oeuvres followed by an exquisite dinner prepared by our seasoned chef. Our guests are often treated to Wynfield Plantation's famous quail dinner finished with a heavenly dessert. Afterwards, retire to the "pavilion" for a game of pool, poker, or a nightcap with your fellow hunters. When you come visit us at Wynfield, you'll feel right at home in our private, well-appointed cabins that are equipped with all the comforts of home, including a fireplace, living room, and small kitchen. Our knowledgeable and friendly staff are second to none; we pride ourselves on becoming friends with our guests and look forward to seeing them back at Wynfield each and every season!

Just like barbeque, sweet tea and football on a Saturday afternoon, quail hunting is a part of our lives, a part of how we grew up, and it's a part of what being from the South is all about. We want you to be a part of this exciting tradition, too. Located in the heart of quail country, Wynfield Plantation represents bobwhite quail hunting at its best, featuring expertly managed woods, private cabins, a sporting clays course and gourmet southern dining. There are few things more thrilling than your dog locked down on a covey of quail that flush high and fast when the time is right! Book your quail hunting experience of a lifetime at Wynfield Plantation.

Accommodations at Wynfield Plantation include five private cabins. Each group is appointed their own cabin, or cabins, depending on the size of your party. There are a total of 27 beds on the property. Our standard lodging rate is for double occupancy lodging (two people per room, including two beds), but we can gladly accommodate single occupancy for an additional fee if we have the space available. We have two larger cabins that sleep up to seven or eight guests, and three smaller cabins that each sleep up to four guests. Each cabin has a comfortable living room including a fireplace, gun storage area, and satellite TV. There is also a kitchen area in each cabin that includes a Keurig coffee maker and a refrigerator.

Meals are served at the main lodge, which is also where the pro shop and the office are located. Wynfield also has a separate building we refer to as the pavilion. The pavilion is where many of our guests retire to after dinner—it is an enclosed building/game room by the edge of the pond and conveniently located behind the cabins. Play a game of pool, poker, or just relax by the fire in the pavilion!

During the early part of the season (October), highs are sometimes in the 70-80 degree F range and lows in the 55-70 degree range. December through early March, temperatures can be anywhere from highs in the 60-70 degree range to highs in the 40-50 range, with lows between 30-50 degrees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Experience! We went quail hunting for the first time ever during opening weekend this year (10/2020). It was absolutely amazing. Our 6 year old daughter had so much fun and keeps asking to go back. The staff is kind, very personable and went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time. Lee was very responsive to all inquiries and questions we had beforehand. Food is outstanding and plentiful. Every meal was a delight. Accommodations are good with each family/group having their own cabin with a view to the beautiful lake. The property is beautiful and well-maintained with an entertainment area for after hunting with a pool table, TV and bar. The actual hunting experience was out of this world. Our guide was extremely nice and knowledgable. He made sure we were enjoying ourselves and at the same time kept us safe. The dogs were the highlight of the entire experience. So well trained, smart and sweet. Our daughter came back home in love with them. The grounds are perfect for hunting and there was plenty of birds to hunt, action all the time. We highly recommend a visit to Wynfield Plantation. There is absolutely nothing negative to talk about it. On the contrary, it has been one of the most remarkable experiences we had so far in life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the friendliest plantations in the South I have hunted quail at half a dozen Southern lodges, and settled on Wynfield for a variety of reasons. First, the hunting is first rate, with strong flying quail and excellent dogs. The layout of the Lodge is unique. Your group actually stays in a modern cabin, and not in some cramped room with all the other hunters you don't know. The staff is beyond the requisite "nice", and truly go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and are having a great time. Can't say enough about the people they have working at Wynfield. The food is plentiful and varied, with everything from Southern fried chicken to prime rib, and of course creatively presented quail. Libations are top shelf as well. I have hunted at Wynfield exclusively for the past few years, and see absolutely no reason to look further for a quail hunting venue. They have it all.
