WHEN YOU ARRIVE AT OUR HUNTING PRESERVE
When you arrive at the preserve located at Fowler Farms Sporting Clays we’ll have an orientation and safety briefing. You will be required to review and sign a liability waiver.
Your safety, anyone hunting with you, our guide, and dogs are MOST IMPORTANT! You must follow accepted safe hunting practices at all times at Split Mountain Quail and Preserve.
NO ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES ARE ALLOWED.
ANYONE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES OR NARCOTICS IS
NOT PERMITTED ON THE PRESERVE.
The terrain at the preserve can be uneven. If you have a physical condition that makes mobility challenging this may not be an activity for you.
The bird dog will track the quail by scent, alerting you when they locate them. On command they will rush the covey of quail causing them to fly, which is your cue to shoot.
If you’re proficient(or lucky) you’ll have a bird/s by the end of the hunt.
If you use the services of our guides they can also assist you in “dressing” your bird to take with you.
A cooler with ice is needed if you plan on taking a bird or two (or more) home with you.
We provide zip lock bags.
At the end of the day?
