Bird Dogs

One of the great things about quail hunting is getting to spend time with your best friend, man's best friend that is. This page is our tribute to just a few of our wonderful canine athletes.

In the Field


These dogs are highly trained to point or flush and retrieve your game in the field. Smoking Gun Plantation has enough dogs to rotate through multiple sets of them throughout the hunt. We do not run our dogs to the point of exhaustion. Our expert handlers spend countless hours training and working these dogs year round.

Quail Hunting

Another year has gone by and we are preparing for the opening of Quail Season. The season runs from October 1st through March 31st. We have already booked several hunts and would like to remind you to contact us to schedule your hunts while you still have choices for availability.

Our dogs are ready to go. They have had a long restful summer and are anxious to hit the ground. Cal has been working hard to prepare the grounds for your arrival and is also ready for your arrival.

We are also well stocked for the entire year with ammunition of all sizes available for your purchase. Unfortunately, this year we have been notified that it is required for you all to purchase individual hunting licenses. We will be able to issue them for you. The cost is $12.00 and that is for a two year license. It will be very helpful for us to keep things moving along quickly upon arrival, if you can please send us a copy of your driver’s license prior to your arrival, so that we can have all of the paperwork filled out for the licenses and ready for your signatures. We look forward to seeing you during the upcoming hunting season. Don’t forget to let friends and family know about us. We are always available to answer all of your questions.

Thank you,
E. T. “Buddy” Henry
