Springtime in Georgia. The entire world is getting green there. And it’s time for some hog hunting. We recently went and spent a weekend at Gum Log Plantation. The hunting retreat is just outside of Abbeville GA – the self-proclaimed Hog Hunting Capital of the World – to do some serious hog hunting with owners Cary Williams and brother, Bland Williams. The area is huge and we’ve got to admit, we were pretty impressed.
A very large guest house, aka the plantation house, is done completely in local pine and completely amazing. Actually gives that homey type of feel to the place. I presume it was 8 bedrooms or so and can easily hold groups in the 20 or so range. Not only is the genuine property huge, but so is the house. Even with 20 folks floating about, it is not like you’re going to be crowded – trust us. Cary and bland say that it’s more often not necessarily the 20 individuals groups and smaller groups which come in. Group hunts of 4-12 are pretty common.
They say on their website that they have, I think, like 3000 acres or something big, but you does not strike until they begin running you around the area.
Jump in the rear of a truck and get the go-round of the entire property. Honestly, Georgia hunting just doesn’t GET any better than this. No kidding. Feed fields – they do so that you’ve got your choice depending on time of year, deer and hog hunting here. If you are curious or inclined, you can also do some fishing. Fields that are regular plus plenty of forested areas. Just so much property. If you’re a hunter, you value the outdoors – and you’ll not be disappointed here. You can roam around for days should you prefer without seeing anything but nature.
You can roam off by yourself whether you desire – particularly if you’ve been here before. Cary said they do have lots of returning visitors every year. Dads and sons, corporate excursions, families. He mentioned the guys from Glock come down here. A lot of people from Raleigh. Cary possesses another business began here in Georgia, Ocmulgee Concrete Services, that is headquartered in Raleigh NC. Because of that, they end up with a number of groups coming down. It looks like they had a good time LOL.
The food is wonderful. The brothers do some cooking that is awesome. Without that, they put on the feed bag for visitors in a big way. We’d some wrapped pork tenderloins. Yummy. Merely great down home cooking.
Just can not say enough about this area. Definitely worth a trip to their web site. If you’re going anywhere near Abbeville GA to do some hog hunting, we actually have to give a nod to the guys around at Gum Log.
