I want to say, "THANK YOU!" to all of you who came and hunted with us at Quail Valley last season! It is always so good to go Quail Hunting with our repeat hunters each year, and we had many first time hunters last year that were a delight to meet and to Quail Hunt with. We hope you all have a great summer, and we look forward to seeing each one of you next Fall!Sonny, Joan, Cindy, Austin, and Don
Welcome to the website of the Quail Valley Hunting Preserve. We are striving to restore the tradition of Quail Hunting at its finest. Our bird hunting preserve is in Lamar County, Alabama. We are located 3 miles west of Vernon on the Aberdeen Road (County Road #26 just past Lebanon Church on the left). We are located just 60 miles south of Tupelo Mississippi, 30 miles East of Columbus, Mississippi and 60 miles West of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. We are less than three hours from Memphis, Tennessee. Hunting at Quail Valley is from October 15th thru March 31st. We provide quality quail hunting at an affordable price!
HISTORY OF QUAIL VALLEY HUNTING PRESERVE
I began as a small child following my Daddy and Uncles on those old-fashioned quail hunts that some of you remember. We could take two or three good meat dogs and find 15 to 20 coveys of bobwhites in a good days hunt. We would always take enough birds to feed several families a delicious bird supper. Do you remember the hot biscuits, rice, sorghum syrup and hot boiled coffee that made the birds taste even better? It was a meal fit for a King!
When I was nine years old, I decided that I wanted my own bird dog puppy. I sold ten hens and a rooster my grandmother had given me to buy my first pup. I picked a rip-rap female out of the litter and named her Jill. I continued to love the sport of Quail Hunting for the remainder of my life. Then in the early 90's the quail began to disappear from the landscape. It finally became impossible to train young dogs and to enjoy hunting, as we had always known it. We, like almost everyone else, finally gave up our beloved sport.
We want you to thoroughly enjoy the hunting of the"PRINCE OF THE GAMEBIRDS", the Bobwhite Quail. We want you to enjoy hunting in a wide range of natural cover. We want you, your children, your grandchildren and your friends to experience the benefits of time together with a good dog, a fast covey rise, and quail gravy. We will do our best to provide you that opportunity. Come on down to Quail Valley and let's go "Bird Huntin". We look forward to meeting and getting to know you!
