The decline of the native bobwhite quail led to the establishment of the hunting preserve in 1974 to restore the quail population and as a sideline to farming. Now, where cotton, peaches, corn and soybeans were grown, the 3,500-acre farm is planted in switch grass, love grass, small grains, clover, partridge pea, and bi-color lespedeza strictly for wildlife management. In 2004, we added a Sporting Clay Range with 5-Stand. The range is a fully automated course, set among hardwoods to fields, always keeping in mind the comforts of our customers.

We also added a few new buildings, a pro shop with shooting inventory and ammunition, a pavilion that can accommodate 150 plus people and a covered barbecue area.

Gay is centrally located approximately an hour's drive from either Atlanta, Columbus, or Macon on Georgia State Highway 85/74, and only 30 minutes from LaGrange, Newnan, Fayetteville, Thomaston or Griffin. All major airports and many smaller airports are easily accessible.
