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.

Sweetwater Preserve is located in Bullock County, less than 25 miles southeast of Montgomery, AL. It features planted fields with fox tail millet, hybrid grain sorghum, hybrid pearl millet, Egyptian Wheat and other free growing small grain bird feeds. The fields are rolling hills with golden broom sage divided by creeks, streams & hedgerows. All of the fields are accessible by mechanical transport (i.e. 2-seater mules & equivalent).
