What’s a day of quail hunting in Georgia that doesn’t begin with a delicious Southern breakfast? Hot coffee, buttermilk biscuits, eggs, ham and cheese grits get you started and ready for your first Bobwhite covey flush.

Lunch might be home-made Georgia-style Brunswick stew and yummy sandwiches or bar-b-cue and of course, sweet tea. In the evening, our guests are served a full Southern home-cooked dinner. Fried chicken, bourbon glazed quail, smothered pork chops, grilled steak, sweet potato casserole, fried green tomatoes followed by pecan-peach cobbler or Key lime pie!

Georgia peaches and pecans are grown in the area so they are favorite, local ingredients. Meals at Shadow Oak, especially dinner, are more times to relax and enjoy true Southern hospitality.

After dinner and a long day out in the field, relax on the front porch or back porch, watch television or get lost in a book. There are lots of hunting and sporting life books and magazines scattered about the Lodge.

If you want to stretch out after dinner, we invite you to take a stroll on the gorgeous grounds surrounding the Lodge; you may encounter a Guinea Hen or Peacock. Range a little further and you may come eye to eye with an Ostrich or Emu. And yes that is a  Plains Zebra! They are all part of the owner Butch Houston’s collection of non-native animals, for viewing only. If there are any non-hunters in your group, they can have a wonderful time on a mini photo safari which can be easily arranged.

All of us here at Shadow Oak Plantation are dedicated to insuring your stay with us, from your quail hunt or pheasant shoot to your meals and accommodations are nothing less than first class. We strive to make sure your experience is so exceptional and memorable it will have you, your family and friends yearning to come back to your new home away from home year after year like so many of our familiar guests.
