January 26, 2007 Dougherty County -- Celebrities from sports, music, and Hollywood, and some of the top business people from across the country are in South Georgia this week for the Quail Unlimited Celebrity Hunt. This is the 20th year the Hunt has been held in Albany, and some of the celebrities haven't missed a single one.
Daryle Lamonica is proud to be hunting in the Quail Unlimited Celebrity Hunt for the 20th straight year. The Former Oakland Raiders and Notre Dame great quarterback has never missed this hunt, because he loves the people in it. "We've become a family. It's more a reunion now than a bunch of guys who get together to go hunting," Lamonica said.
People from across the country pay to hunt on 51 South Georgia plantations and properties with celebrities like Lamonica, which the landowners donate to help Quail Unlimited. "They invite us in. They allow us to hunt on their properties. That is special. I don't know any other part of the country where you can find that," said Lamonica.
For more than 20 years Quail Unlimited has made this celebrity hunt one of their biggest fund raisers, using the money to protect wildlife habitat. Quail Unlimited Board Member Steve Ramsey said, "What we do here over the next four days benefits quail habitat, as well as other similar species, like songbirds as an example, in an immeasurable way."
Quail Unlimited Board Member Gene Hartman said, "You got a lot of people that are still interested in what happens to the next generation. Unless we do continue this effort, there will not be any place for our grandkids to hunt."
Something Daryle Lamonica has made a priority for the last 20 years, and plans to continue. "I hope I can come back for another 20."
Just one of the people who has made supporting Quail Unlimited through this celebrity hunt a part of their life.
The Quail Unlimited Celebrity hunters will celebrate with a Dinner and Auction Friday night at the Civic Center. They'll be back in the fields for a second day of hunting Saturday.
