Morrison Pines Plantation
At Morrison Pines Plantation, we hunt approximately 4,000 acres of the best quail habitat in South Georgia. We hunt both native and stocked birds. We follow an early release program in September to establish coveys for the season. Field transportation is by truck or hunting buggies pulled by trucks. We also have a mule wagon and horses upon request prior to your arrival.
Quail hunting will be the principal focus, with guides and other staff that are well known to previous guests. The emphasis will be on quality dog work and a quality experience. The dining will be southern.
The hunting property consists of the 1,800 acres of Carlton Farms traditionally hunted, plus approximately 2,200 additional acres under lease. One thousand two hundred acres of the Carlton Farms property were put into a perpetual Conservation Easement with Tall Timbers Research, Inc., in 2007 which will guarantee that these longleaf pine uplands with threatened and endangered species may nonetheless be hunted forever without fear of development. Additional tracts are also under lease for deer and turkey hunting.

Turkey Hunting at Morrison Pines
Spring turkey season at Morrison Pines is right around the corner! We have been building our flocks for many years, and we are now ready to harvest some fine gobblers. All hunts are guided by long time turkey hunters of these areas that are very knowledgeable about all the tracts.
While on a three or four day turkey hunt, hunters may take two gobblers–no jakes or hens. On a two day hunt, the hunter may harvest one bird; an additional bird may be taken at an additional cost.
Your package includes all meals, lodging, one-on-one guides, field transportation and game preparation. The guides will get you in the vicinity of a gobbler and then call for you, if you do not wish to call for yourself. Hunters are in the woods well before dawn to listen for the first gobble and are usually back by noon. Time may vary due to weather conditions or due to the birds.
Lodging and Accommodations
The main lodge at Morrison Pines is also available for social gatherings during the non-hunting season–including wedding receptions, business meetings, church retreats, dinners, etc. A smaller existing lodge nearby with 4 bedrooms and 3 ½ baths is available. All of this is in a setting of large live oaks and buildings from the 1890’s when the Carlton family’s predecessor, John Morrison, purchased the property as a turpentine plantation.
The local airport, which will accommodate the largest private aircraft, and the modern Colquitt Regional Hospital are less than five miles away from the lodge.
