The Wild Quail Hunts @ Hollywood Farms

DSC00746.png

There was a time when the glorious bobwhite quail could be found in large numbers across the Southeast.  Over the past five decades, the overwhelming number of challenges they've faced has forced their populations to plummet dramatically.

 

At Hollywood Farms, we are continuously working the land responsibly to bring back this timeless game bird.
