While a day at Windy Hill Farm and Preserve provides all the elements of a great hunt, our commitment to your entire experience is what sets us apart. As a boutique hunting preserve, we tailor each hunt to the unique guest’s expectations. This personalization, coupled with exceptional Southern hospitality and private, spacious accommodations results in a hunting getaway at our retreat in Eastern Tennessee that you’ll return to year after year.

Upland Quail Hunting season ends on March 24, 2024. Book today!

The Hunt

Each morning session begins with a hearty breakfast to fuel your day and connect with others before heading into the field. Each session offers three hours of continuous pursuit for 2-4 guests per course. A mid-day pause for lunch at Wilder offers a chance to recharge and regroup before heading back out for the afternoon chase. After a day in the field experiencing the finest upland quail hunting, we’ll head back just in time to enjoy a refreshing drink and light snacks to celebrate your hunt.

Professional Guides

Our passionate and experienced guides ensure a safe and successful quail hunt. Lead guide Jack Bailey (known to us as ‘Chicken Hawk’ – and you can ask him why) brings 25 years of guiding experience to the field and knows how to put hunters on great birds. Jack and his team also love introducing folks to the sport, and welcome those of any experience level.

Trained Gundogs

Windy Hill’s kennels are occupied by some of the best breeds and bloodlines in the country. From English Setters to English Cockers and German Shorthaired Pointers, our gundogs are trained year round for the chance to take to the field with you. We are proud to not only run world class pointers and retrievers, but also skilled flushing dogs for a truly authentic covey rise.
