"This was my second trip to Pine Hill and just as enjoyable as the first. I really enjoy riding their horses and following the dogs through the fields and timber. The birds are plentiful and fly hard. I have had great guides both times, as they are very adept at understanding what I really enjoy. I enjoyed the lunches in the field, and as usual eat too much as the food is really good and cooked in the southern style. Jackie and Doug make you feel at home."

Additional Thoughts:More like a pleasant hunting companion fhan a guide
"When my old shooting companion and I were in the middle of our trip, we wondered whether you get to check off a bucket list item and still do it again.
Wonderful staff and accomodations, plenty of deicious low country food and the genuine experience. The old South, the pines, the horses and wagons. They have the image of difference.
Oh, and the staff treated our wives wonderfully, at the
lodge and on the wagon in the field.
It was as close as I'll get to Babcock and Buckingham."

"We entered our inaugural hunting experience at Pine Hill Plantation with lofty expectations fueled by the Orvis ratings and recommendations from friends who have been previous guests. Those expectations were exceeded at every turn. Our group places a premium on attentive service and crisp logistics. Those qualities are exemplified throughout the Pine Hill experience. Jackie and Doug Coe are engaging and gracious hosts. The staff is professional, courteous and efficient. The food was absolutely 5 star. Stephen Coe is the consummate hunt master with client engagement skills that will take him far in life. And, lest I fail to mention it, the quail hunting experience was off the charts. Numerous large coveys exhibting all the characteristics of wild birds spread across 6,000 acres of pristine south Georgia hunting terraine. It's not sufficient to place Pine Hill on your bucket list - put it on your annual list."

"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"

"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.
