Cherokee Plantation will host the 2012 Tall Timbers Fall Field Day Friday, October 26
This premiere 7000-acre quail hunting property in northeastern Leon County has a rich tradition dating back to the early 1900s. Cherokee, was originally part of Foshalee Plantation, when purchased by the Ingalls and Ireland families in 1944. In the mid-1960s the families mutually agreed to divide hunting operations creating Cherokee Plantation. Both Herbert Stoddard and later Walter Rosene, the fathers of quail management, worked and consulted with managers of Cherokee. Today, through careful management, Cherokee remains one of the top quail hunting properties in the Red Hills along with excellent dove, duck and turkey hunting. Come join us to celebrate the history and tradition of Cherokee Plantation!
The outlook for the 2012/2013 quail hunting season will be discussed as well as other land management topics and the results from our recent quail research. A field tour of the property will be followed by lunch. Check-in and late registration begin at 7:30 AM. The field day adjourns at 1 PM. Cherokee Plantation is located in north Leon County, FL off U.S. HWY 319, just a few miles south of the Florida/Georgia state line.
Fall Field Day Registration fee: $40 for members; $50 for non-members. A $10 late fee will be assessed if registering after Friday, October 19. Click here for the flyer/registration form.
