Sweetwater Preserve offers some of the finest quail hunting in the Montgomery area.  It features a cozy lodge in a country setting, good guides and handlers, quality dogs and top-notch personal service.

Sweetwater Preserve is part of the original Pickett Plantation established in the 1820's.  In the early days, settlers hunted game as a necessity for survival.  As time passed and food became more available, hunting evolved into a sport.  As a child, I remember my Granddaddy gathering with his friends and business associates to hunt quail in the vast sage fields laced with pine and hardwood trees.  I have fond memories of the end of the hunt with men gathering around a fire for good conversation and reflection of the day's hunt. 

Today, Sweetwater Preserve is proud to offer this same setting to friends and business associates.  We anticpate you will enjoy a quality quail hunt along with Southern Hospitality.  Sweetwater Preserve welcomes you to visit, hunt and relax with us. 

We hope to see you soon,
