"I was told about Pine Hill Plantation by my brother in law, who had hunted there last year. Words are not enough to describe the top notch experience you get from beginning to end. The staff, accommodations, hunting experience, food are all outstanding. I do not know how you could improve on any aspect."

"Quite simply an unsurpassed experience. Everyone we met from the owners (Doug and Jackie), to those in charge of our care at the lodge (Clayton, Al and Amanda), to those who braved the woods with us (Huntmaster Steven, Fireman Brandon, and Mule Driver Mike) were as personable as one could hope and knowledgeable in their craft. Thank you...all of you...for an experience of a lifetime.

"My wife and I visited Pine Hill Plantation over Valentine's Day weekend, 2014. The Coe's were perfect hosts and the staff in our lodge attended to our every wish. A "traditional" quail hunt was on my bucket list and I couldn't have found a better place for checking it off. This is not a put and take operation; it so obvious that they manage the habitat and the hunting pressure to ensure a great hunting experience. The mules, dogs and horses were top notch and the hunting staff were friendly, professional and very safety conscious. The food was fabulous and the accommodations luxurious. My wife did not shoot but enjoyed riding the hunt wagon one day and exploring south Georgia on the other days. Probably one of my favorite features: no internal combustion engines were involved."

The staff goes above and beyond - my husband enjoyed the hunt and I enjoyed riding horseback and watching the dogs work. Doug and Jackie are gracious hosts and their staff is amazing! Thank you so much for everything!"

"To the whole crew, but especially Steven, JR, Sharlene and Marci, thank you. I cannot express in words how much fun we had. Even though I shot like a rookie, it was a trip back in time for me. So many memories of so many great people, dogs, horses, land and covey rises flooded back inside my mind.
I began Quail hunting with my father before I was big enough to carry a gun. I have a picture of my father and me on a horse at a field trial at Sedgefield Plantation when I was less than a year old. I am fairly certain I did not ride the brace but it is a constant reminder of my father and my heritage. I lost him when I was 13, but he rides with me every day.
There are stories in my family of quail hunting dating back to the turn of the century and I'm not referring to the one we lived through. My grandfather and his sons hunted Quail in the winter and would ship them by train to the Elite Cafe in Montgomery, which at the time and even into my early life was the premier restaurant in Montgomery. They tell a story of my Uncle Joe's return from World War I. No one knew when he was to arrive, but "his" bird dog jumped up off the porch and ran down the road to meet him as he walked the 3 miles from the train station home. When the Great Depression hit, my grandmother left home, moved to Auburn and ran a boarding house so one of my other uncles and my father could stay in school. My grandfather stayed on the farm and shipped food, including Quail in the winter, to Auburn to feed the boys. So the link to Auburn is long and strong with me. A big War Eagle to Steven!
Again, thank you for a wonderful time. Keep doing what y'all are doing. You are keeping alive a part of the South that is at the heart of our culture and what makes us unique and strong."

"Jackie and Doug,
Everything was excellent. If I had scripted every minute, it could not have been any better. Having my son's in laws and their fathers together was priceless and we thoroughly enjoyed everything from the trap shooting, the food, the accommodations the meals, and the excellent hunting. We will definitely be coming back. It was beyond perfect."

"This was an excellent hunt. The accommodations, service, meals, and beverages were all first class. The rooms and the main house were very comfortable, and the staff made you feel right at home. The guides were no nonsense, safety conscious, knowledgeable, and enjoyable to hunt with. All the animals were well trained, the dogs were excellent. Enjoyed the whole experience. Would not hesitate to recommend this hunt or to go back for more southern hospitality

"I visited PHP last year with business associates and was so impressed that before I left I booked the trip for this year to share with my sons. Visited Veterans weekend and once again PHP exceeded all my expectations. I could go on and on about the hunting, accommodations lodging and food, all of which were excellent, but that would take away from what really makes PHP special--its the people. Bravo PHP, can't wait till next year. My 12 and 21 year old sons can't stop talking about the trip"

"as you approach this beautiful planatation home, you know you are about to be in for a wonderful experience. the staff greet you, your rooms are very nice and immediately you begin the tranformation. Georgia's FInest Quail Hunting experience. Horses meet you in the morning with the mule drawn carriage. the dogs are sounding their excitment, the professional guides led you through the woods. soon a point, slowly walk up then BANG ! you will cover over 200 acres a day and it will seem like nothing. enjoy a fabulous lunch in the woods, lay in a hammock and back out there for the afternoon march. I cannot explain how awesome it is. the evening meals and beverages are delighful. these folks know how to do it, what you want, and glad you are here. I will be back !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

"I just got back from a two day hunt at PHP and it surpassed my every expectation. I learned that the reason this hunting vacation is so hard to duplicate is because everything Doug, Jackie and the staff do is from the heart. I have always been impressed by southern hospitality and the staff at PHP has reset the bar. I can not wait to go back next year with my son."

"Even better than I hoped, the night's stay and all-day hunt was a special treat for my 3 sons and me in March. Simple food very well prepared and gracious hosts, Jackie and Doug went above and beyond. The boys loved hunting on horseback, while I enjoyed the wagon and the conversation with the driver. We'll be back."
