Fall Feather Hunt starts Wednesday

December 8, 2003

Albany - It's that time of year again, a three day quail hunt will kick off this week.

The 16th annual Fall Feather Hunt starts Wednesday in south Georgia and it's expected to bring in more jobs to Georgia.

Nearly 20 guests from around the country and two international guests will hunt quail on several plantations.

The visitors are business decision makers who are thinking of expanding or relocating their business to Georgia. State Chairman, Jim Deal, says, "It enables them to see the process as they are thinking through it and the results have been outstanding."

The hunt is hosted by Georgia Allies and Georgia Chamber of Commerce.

Governor Sonny Perdue and Lt. Governor Mark Taylor will be keynote speakers this year. Ten guests from the past three years have brought in more than 1,200 jobs and 187-million dollars to the state.
