Red Fern Plantation


Turkey Hunting at red fern plantation hunting preserve Statesboro, ga


Nothing beats the thrill of an ole gobbler answering back and struttin' in closer and closer just as the dawn breaks.  Early morning yelping, cutting and gobbling can't beat it.

Your hunt will start very early in the morning where you will be guided to a pre-scouted location.  

You or your guide can do the calling.  The scenery and atmosphere combined with the excitement of the birds gobbling, drumming and spitting is what makes this an unforgettable and truly addictive hunt. 

After the hunt you will be provided a hearty country breakfast.  Your bird will be cleaned and package or if you elect it can be prepared for you to take to the taxidermist of your choice.  If you desire we can even have it taken to a taxidermist for you and have it delivered to you when it is complete.

This is sure to be an unforgettable experience.  Don't miss out on the experience of a lifetime.

Turkey Hunting Policies, Procedures and Recommendations

Please be sure to book early to assure your preferred date and time.

Reservation, Cancellation and Reschedule Policy: 
In order for us to provide you and others with a spectacular day of hunting we hope you appreciate our Reservation, Cancellation and Rescheduling Policies.  

All Turkey Hunting reservations require a 100% deposit per hunter to book a hunt.  This is a NON-REFUNDABLE deposit in cases of rescheduling, cancellations and "No Shows".   However fairness dictates that if you cancel or reschedule a booking date and that particular date is later successfully re-booked with another group of hunters RFP will refund your deposit.

RFP  highly recommends that our guest purchase travel insurance coverage for those unexpected situations.  Travel Guard ( is just one of many companies that offer this service at a reasonable price.  If you choose not to secure this valuable coverage, you are assuming any financial loss associated with a cancellation or change in our travel arrangements.  Also, having a back up hunter in case of cancellation in your group is a popular idea. 

Upon receiving your deposit a Booking Confirmation and Information Packet will be sent by email.  Upon receipt of your Booking Confirmation please immediately verify that the hunt date and time are scheduled as we agreed.

Obviously we only have a limited number of days to hunt per year.  Please take this into consideration and carefully plan your reservations to reduce the risk of penalizing either yourself or RFP during our short hunting season.

Any balance is due at registration.  Any incidental charges incurred during the hunt can be paid at the conclusion of your visit.

Rained Out Hunt:
In the event a hunt is prevented from taking place due to rain at the time of the hunt the Client has the option to either reschedule the hunt to a later date or receive a refund minus any services he has actually received.  Rescheduling is subject to availability within the same season.
