Located halfway between Atlanta and Savanna, this hunt takes place on 1,750 acres of private land way off the beaten track. It's so isolated there are no road frontage or power lines. The nearest town is Dublin, and that's 30 miles away. Jones manages the property for trophy quality, harvesting excess does, allowing clients to shoot trophy bucks only, and keeping the number of bucks harvested each year to only eight. He has also planted 21 different food plots, totaling 38 acres, and he has numerous feeders filled with corn and set throughout the property.
He says hunters can expect to see plenty of bucks over 120 and ranging up to 150 B & C. While they should not expect a Booner, Jones says one was taken off a neighboring property a few years ago, so the genetics for good deer are present. As for success, Jones says that in the past four years only one hunter had gone home empty handed until this past season. Seems rain and thunderstorms forced several of Jones' clients out of their stands this year. Plus, the bad weather kept the deer from moving as much as usual.
Paulin says he lucked out during his hunt, seeing numerous eight-point bucks every day. He finally killed a buck after seeing eight other shooters.
The cost of this hunt is $2,000, with an $800 trophy fee due upon taking a buck. Bucks........(continued)
