Our Passion: Hunting

Now entering its eight season, South Fork Hunting Preserve has changed a lot from its humble beginnings hunting in former cow pastures and the dirt floor office that they started with in 2013. Come experience the welcoming environment and comradery from staff and members alike that will make you not want to leave, and also enjoy the stunning 3 story clubhouse that greets you as you pull into the parking lot. No visit is complete to South Fork without a trip to the “crows nest” which features breathtaking views of dogs on point in the hunting fields below, and also the Appalachian Trail in the nearby Carolina mountains.

The gentle rolling hills of their multiple fields are accented on their edges with wood lines that create a perfect habitat for quail, and are all planted in a variety of different cover including sorghum, millet, and many other native grasses. Many of the fields are open and fairly flat for easy walking, and all have manicured lanes cut throughout for ease of hunting. The fields are spacious and the cover is thick, but some of the more experienced hunters prefer the challenging hardwoods courses as a change of pace from field hunting. These wooded courses place a premium on well-timed, quick shots and superior dog work as hunters and dogs work their way through virgin white oak bottoms and into the field. 

Owned and operated by Colby Phillips and Jacob Nash, South Fork Hunting Preserve is the perfect escape from your daily routine. It is their passion to share their beautiful property with you, and to keep seeing you year after year.

You won't want to go back home.

Happy Hunters

Been going here for a couple of years now and we absolutely love it. The entire staff here is fantastic. The new property is beautiful and great for hunting. We brought 3 guys out this time that had not done a quail hunt before and now they are hooked for life. Also it is the best deal you can find for a quail hunt in Georgia.

Jacob and Colby run a top notch outfit. The guides Matt, and Kyle and the entire staff treat you like family They provide a great hunt with birds that fly and not run. The dogs work hard and are championship caliber. Once the hunt is over you’ll find yourself lingering around the fire enjoying good conversation with the South fork family and other hunters. I’ve taken men and women along and have always felt respected and appreciated. Driving away the conversation always turns to our next return before we make it home. Go and check them out, you’ll be hooked!

I took my father-in-law on a pheasant hunt around veterans day and have to say it was absolutely perfect. We talked for years about flying out west until I found South Fork. Jacob and all staff/members are top notch. We will no doubt be repeat customers. Ask about Ruger. The only dog I know who can get you a bird without firing a shot. Look forward to another hunt. Appreciate it. C.Klink
