We started offering guided and non-guided quail hunts to the general public in 1965. As a licensed commercial shooting preserve we must continually restock or replace birds shot or lost to predators. We are very pleased with the exceptionally strong flying birds that we are liberating now. Many of our customers comment on what strong flying birds we have. Several hunters that have frequented other preserves have told us that ours are the best they have encountered.
One of our new quail hunters with a very young wire haired pointer recently left this message on our telephone voicemail:
Floyd, just wanted to call and tell you how much fun I had; that was an absolute ball. Maggie worked like a champ. I promise you I’ll be back. I got 6 of 10 with the little 28. Feel good about it too! Floyd, I flushed 2 coveys and I’ll tell you, there must have been 10-12 birds in each of them. They flew wild! They looked good. I guarantee you I’ll be back and bring my son. He’ll love it. Wonderful to meet you!
Claude “Shorty” Smith, the little man with the big personality, continues to guide with a four-wheeler. A crippling accident did little to slow him down. A great guide with his own excellent dogs continues to be in high demand. His grandson, “Bo”, inherited Shorty’s great love for quail hunting and does a super job of guiding as well.

Overnight Accommodations with One of the World’s Great Cooks
We are more than delighted to recommend to our hunters that they stay at the Bunn Ranch next door to Redbone. Carey and Paulette Bunn have meticulously restored a fine old southern home plus a two-story bunkhouse. They didn’t invent southern hospitality, but they sure perpetuate it. $175 per person which includes breakfast, lunch and a fabulous dinner.
