A Beautiful Shooting Plantation With a Rich History

Zipping down Ga. Highway 16 towards Sparta, on a summer day so hot that heat waves are rising off the pavement in a rolling mirage, I am on the lookout for a telephone pole painted white which is the visible entrance marker to Old Hudson Plantation.  Sitting in the Middle Georgia piney woods the site has been in the family of Neal Bush since 1779, passed down through his mother. Neal is the fifth generation to return home to his roots and take up residence on these grounds. Amongst the quiet, historic surroundings, there is a modern shooting club offering skeet, trap, 5-stand, and a newly added 14-station sporting clays course. In addition, one of the state’s most successful hatcheries is producing quail and pheasant chicks, which ship to various locations around the state and guided hunts for the same birds between October and March.

Great News Shooters,

If you have or maybe haven't taken shooting lessons from an instructor, we will have a couple of good instructors coming to Old Hudson Plantation in the next few months.


Donny Roth, April 18 and 19, 2015:

Donny is a very good instructor and has worked with several of our associated youth and adults. Donny will be available 8:30 to 5:30 each of these two days and you can call him (864-350-7213) to reserve your time(s) and to get other information that you might want. Donny's email address is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .  Donny is great with youths and adults, so don't miss this opportunity to either learn the basics of shooting or to fine tune your shooting skills. You will not be disappointed.


Rick Smith, June 6 and 7, 2015:

On Saturday June 6, 2015 Rick will hold a Five person academy. The instruction will run from approx. 9 a.m. Til 4 p.m. And the cost is $300 per person to include targets and lunch. The student will need to bring his shotgun and shells. This is a very good opportunity to learn from Rick and the other students as you will all be on the course together. Where else can you get approximately seven hours of instruction for this value?


On Sunday June 7, 2015 Rick will be available for individual instruction from 9 a.m. Til 7 p.m. He will book a minimum of 2 hours at $100/hr. The student will be responsible for targets, shells and gun. Again Rick has taught several of our youth and adults with great success and you will learn a great deal whether you are a beginning shooter or just need to hone your abilities. To schedule for the Academy or the individual instructions, give Rick a call (864-415-3161) or Nancy Bush (706-467-9345). Rick's email is This email address is being protected from spambots.
