Your questions matter to us! What would you like to know about Alabama Quail Hunt – Davis Quail?

Our First-Hand Experience

Immediately, we felt the connection of the true southern hospitality that defines Mazie and Colvin Davis. We hunted over some of the most amazing dogs we have encountered. They were steady to wing and shot and nothing would cause them to move before they were released.

Our first impression was that this was a perfect spot for a novice hunter as there was no rush to get into shooting position because the dogs were not going to budge. We are not too proud to say that more than a few shots were missed at these fast flying quail. Quick witted Colvin with a hearty laugh didn’t miss an opportunity to pass around a little grief when his birds avoided our pellets.

Oh my, then our delicious dinner was all homemade bread, perfectly cooked grilled ribeye from the cookhouse out back, fresh collard greens, salad, and mashed potatoes. Over the years, we have enjoyed a close relationship with Colvin and Mazie that we know will result in a lifetime friendship.

Quail Hunting:
Groups of two or three will be the shooters over a champion dog.  The transportation to the game is by tractor pulled wagon or a custom “limo” open jeep.  Once the dog is on point, two or three hunters will walk up to the dog and set up as the shooters.

About Colvin and Mazie Davis:

 Elected to the Field Trial Hall of Fame in 2006, Colvin has trained and handled bird dogs for nearly 50 years.  He and his dogs have won over 40 major Open All-Age Championship titles, many runner-up laurels, hundreds of placements with dozens of dogs.  He has been quail hunting all his life.  Mazie has 35 years of quail and turkey hunting experience.  The expansive and diverse Davis Quail Hunts grounds have been used to develop many a field trial champion including 1991 National Field Trial Champion, Quicksliver Pink!

Class Bird Dogs Make the Difference:

 No where will the bird dogs and retrievers give you a bigger thrill than at this lodge.  You’ll be hunting over some of the finest bird dogs in the country.  Superbly trained and handled by your host, Field Trial Hall of Famer, Colvin Davis and his wife Mazie Davis.  Watching these exciting dogs canvas the country then pin point covies is what quail hunting is all about.  All their dogs are steady to wing and shot.  They’ll hold their exciting pointing posture as the birds flush giving you the peace of mind to focus on your shooting.  The retrievers will do the work of flushing the birds and finding your shot birds.

Hunter Safety Course:

A Hunter Safety Course is required for those born on or after August 1, 1977

Enjoy this clients explanation of his hunt at Davis Quail:

“This venue has something for everyone: Great Birds, Southern Hospitality at its best, Nice comfortable lodge, Great Southern cooking, etc

Unlimited birds is almost unheard of in today’s bird hunting venues.  Not at Davis Quail Hunts.”

The way they hunt: a person, usually Mazie heads out on horseback with the pointers. A guide/driver follows, usually Colvin, loads the hunters into the wagon and pulls the  hunters (with flushing dogs, kenneled rested pointing dogs, gun rack, cooler for water and snacks) in a custom wagon/trailer.  When the dogs go on point with Mazie, the trailer pulls up, hunters get into position and get loaded up and Colvin sends in the flushing dog.  Bang Bang Bang. while the birds are being retrieved, Mazie heads out again, she finds another covey from horseback and the process starts over again.

So it is one covey after another –  3-6 coveys an hour are common..   You are welcome to walk if you want the exercise – sort of like playing golf and taking the golf cart or walking the course.

A break for a home cooked lunch and you are ready for the afternoon hunt.

Habitat is the key to any hunting operation.  The Davis Lodge spends as much time grooming the habitat to be Quail friendly (food plots, plentiful water, exceptional cover for hiding from predators, trails for the jeep) as they do grooming the best hunting dogs in the South.  Colvin is a dog trainer of over 40 years and a “Field Trial Hall of Fame” recipient.   Like the Football Hall of Fame – he is the Best of the Best and his dogs reflect that.

An exciting experience to watch and participate in.

Very safe, very controlled and a Bunch of Fun.   This style of hunting is great for veteran quail hunters, or inexperienced kids, wives, or families just learning. Cindy learned to Quail hunt here.”


Enjoy relaxing at the lodge, shooting skeet, fishing in the pond, or just walking around the property!
