Big Red Oak Plantation Shooting Preserve
Gay, GA 30218
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.
