Quail & Pheasant Hunting
Do I need a hunting license to quail hunt?
Current law requires all hunters to be in possession of a shooting preserve license. A 2 year license costs $12 and can be purchased at Noontootla Creek Farms upon arrival OR more info available at www.georgiawildlife.com. Anyone holding a sportsman license is exempt from this additional expense.
Do I need to provide my own shotgun & shells? If so, what is recommended?
Yes, you must provide your own shotgun & shells. Shotguns from .410 bore to 12 gauge. Shells… 7 1/2 to 8 shot only. Shotgun shells (12 and 20 Gauge are available for sale at the Sporting Clays Pro Shop)
Can we get instruction and then fish at Noontootla Creek Farms?
Yes. Please indicate your level of experience and request need for instruction when booking your trip. We offer fly fishing schools throughout the year. Give us a call 706-838-0585 and check our website for updates.
Will Quail hunting take place at the same time while we’re fishing?
Possibly, but quail hunts are carefully scheduled with safety of all our guests in mind. One of our sections of water is well away from the quail hunting area.
Can I use my small stream 3-weight fly rod at NCF?
Due to the size of some of the resident fish at NCF, both for the protection of the resource and enjoyment of the angler, we recommend nothing smaller than a 5-weight fly rod.
What fly patterns do you suggest?
This depends upon the particular season. Of course, a great deal of insect emergence always takes place in the Spring & early Summer months. Your guide will be prepared with appropriate flies for the conditions.
