Celebrities and residents of South Georgia went on a hunt Friday and Saturday with Quail Albany.

The 2nd annual Albany quail hunt started Friday and was spread out to various locations including the Wynfield Plantation. The groups came in on jeeps and explored the property for three hours while hunting for quail.

This event, although pricey to join, also helped non-profit organizations for quail and quail hunting.

Kurt Gurthie, General Manager of the Wynfield Plantation said, "the most exciting part is being able to get out into the woods, see nature, the pine trees, the habitat and to watch the dogs work and point the birds."

This was an all-day event and included some recognizable faces like Kevin Costner and Annie Lockhart.
