A Beautiful Shooting Plantation

Welcome to Old Hudson Plantation

Old Hudson Plantation is a shooting and event venue that hosts various functions such as Corporate Team Building, Bachelor Parties, Quail Hunts, Skeet Shoots and many more. Rent out our Pavilion for your private function at Lake Oconee. We also have a Game Bird Hatchery with Mature Quail and Day Old Chicks.

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.
