Albany -- Organizers say the Quail Unlimited Celebrity Hunt in Albany over the weekend was a big success.

This was the 20th Anniversary of the Quail Unlimited Celebrity Hunt in Albany. This is Quail Unlimited's biggest fundraiser of the year, and they use the money to preserve wild bird habitat. Q.U. Dir. of Chapter Development Tommy Dean said "love it here. Definitely will be back. Looking forward to 21 plus years."

 This year's Quail Unlimited Celebrities hunted on a record 51 properties in South Georgia.

The Albany Visitors and Convention Bureau estimates the hunt has a one million dollar impact on the local economy.
