Dougherty County -- Quail Unlimited officials think the weekend Celebrity Hunt may have been one of their most profitable ever.

50 celebrities hunted in South Georgia over the weekend. And the crowd for the Saturday night Live Auction was so large, hundreds of people had to be turned away.

 Chapter Development Director Tommy Dean said "We take a look at this event, and can see what the economy is doing. If the economy is doing poorly, we suffer. But this year went really well. Last year went well, but this year was even better, so I think we are on a positive upswing."

The money raised will go to preserve wildlife habitat across North America.
