"Outstanding hunt with exceptional guides. Quail hunting in lodge pole timber is quite the challenge vs the open plains of S. Texas. Great time in the field, very nice accommodations and lovely staff."

"We had an excellent experience at Pine Hill Plantation in February 2015. Doug, Jackie and the rest of the team did a fabulous job hosting us for a traditional Georgia quail hunt. This lodge's outstanding reputation is well deserved. The entire staff was friendly and outgoing and made our group of 10 feel like we were hunting with old friends. Thanks for a great time!"

"Visited Pine Hill February 2015. Absolutely awesome time. The guides lead by Todd - Zack, Danny and Vance were great - right on point as were the dogs. Loads of birds and plenty of opportunity. Teamster (Wagon Driver)Ron was full of experience, knowledge and stories. Chef Dawn and her assistant Ashley really took good care of us - food was amazing and the place was incredible. Miss Jackie was engaging and present. Couldn't ask for more."

Exceptional Experience,
January 24, 2015
By: cbsporting
from Monroe, CT
"My wife and I had the pleasure of joining Doug and Jackie at PHP in December. The experience of quail hunting at Pine Hill exceeded all expectations.
The traditional plantation style hunt on horse and with mule wagon was remarkable. The experience brings you back in time as you follow the dogs pick up the scent through the pristine long leaf pine habitat; flushing covey after covey of fast-flying birds.
From the outstanding staff to the great food and lodging, PHP is exceptional. We're already checking calendars for a trip back.
Corey & Audrey"

"WOW... never quail hunted before and have hunted several other species. Pine Hill hasn't missed anything in providing a top notch experience. The food, staff, dog handlers and guides are some of the best. Doug and Jackie Coe have truly created an experience of a lifetime for you from start to finish... Hope to be back real soon.

"In the immortal words of Ray Kinsella in Field of Dreams, "If you build it, they will come!!!" Pine Hill Plantation is nothing short of a Field of Dreams. After just completing our fifth annual hunt at Pine Hill, I can attest to the fact that Pine Hill is nothing short of spectacular. Doug and Jackie Coe have pulled out all the stops to make sure your quail hunting experience is beyond memorable. From the lodging and food staff, to Todd Howard and the field staff, nothing is overlooked. Pine Hill is the Disneyland of quail hunting!!!"

"I have hunted everywhere in the USA for almost everything to hunt. The experience we had at Pine Hill Plantation tops the list, Doug, Jackie and staff left no detail unturned. The attention to detail, starting from pick up to meals to actual hunt was a tr uely great experience. If you wish to take part in a old tradition Quail hunt from mule drawn wagons to horse back, try these folks. They are the best, we shall return.
