Jones Hunting Preserve in East Tennessee

Pheasants, chukar and quail are all on the menu
 Located in the scenic rolling high country of Eastern Tennessee along Highway 81, Jones Hunting Preserve has a solid history of excellence in bird dog training. Once the focal point of the popular field trial circuit, today this quail hunting preserve offers both memberships and daily fee hunts for upland gamebirds. Guide and all-around dog man Dale Myers is very knowledgable about his kennel of 30 bird dogs! With five different 'fields' of bird habitat under management there is plenty of ground for hunters to cover. Special care is given to groom the open fields for the habitat that benefits quail, practices like prescribed fire and attention to native warm season grasses. There are two lodges on the property and the one I stayed in was spacious, with eight upstairs bedrooms and the entire interior was covered in attractive pine wood. This is a no frills hunting opportunity, where the focus is on hunting birds in their remote and pristine location.
