Otherwise...come on out and squeeze the trigger!


-    I have never quail hunted before.  Do I need to be experienced to participate in a hunt?

     As with many sporting activities experience can be helpful, but it is not necessary.  It is helpful if you 

     have hunting experience.   We suggest that if this is your first quail hunt that you utilize 

     the services of one of our guides.


-    How many people are allowed to participate in a hunt?

     3 people actively hunting are permitted per zone; our preserve has 3 zones each between 35-40 acres

     located within the 700+ acres at Fowler Farms Sporting Clays.


-    What is the cost to participate in a quail hunt?

     The price can vary depending on whether you provide your own dog, shotgun, ammunition, or utilize one 

      of our  guides.  

     There is a basic fee for a three hour hunt, and additional fees if we provide those items/services. 


Call us for pricing information and to schedule your hunt!


-     What do I need to bring to a hunt?

       First, be sure you have a North Carolina hunting license.  

       In-state residents can use an existing NC hunting license or get a special license for $20 annually

       that permits hunting on a quail preserve.  

       Out - of - state residents can purchase the $20 annual special permit for hunting on a quail preserve.

       Licenses can be purchased at the nearby Trust General Store, or by calling: 1-888-248-6834
