Briarpatch Hunting Preserve is located 10 miles south of Marion, Perry County, on the Blackbelt Prairie in west-central Alabama.

Guided quail hunts are given from October 1 to March 31. If you do not have your own dogs do not worry, we will supply dogs and a guide.

All of the birds used on the preserve are raised in fight pens of fifty by one hundred and fifty feet. These pens are supplied with plenty of cover to insure that the birds can adapt to the outside environment, making for an excellent flight bird to hunt.
Hunters at the ready
Anchor Covey Release Systems are used on the hunting preserve, and also placed in the flight pens, insuring the birds are familiar with the system. We have used this system for eight seasons now and are very pleased with the results.

Bobby and Jen, "My father, both my sons, my daughter, and I have been hunting with you folks for the past 5 years. I think this year was the best yet. The two Korean gentlemen from Hyundai in Montgomery that I brought over this year had a wonderful time. They had never hunted quail before and were amazed at the way your dogs worked the birds. Thanks a lot for the good times and good memories." Randy Festavan, Cahaba Maintenance & Construction, Inc.
