ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Celebrities will hit fields and plantations around south Georgia Friday morning as part of the annual Quail Albany celebrity hunt.

Thursday night at Stonebridge Country Club, organizers said "thank you" to landowners who allow hunters on the property.

Oscar-winning director and actor Kevin Costner was among the celebrities at the dinner.

Wynfield Plantation General Manager Kurt Guthrie told us he's glad to help out this event which brings attention to Albany. "Because anything that we can do to continues to grow quail hunting is a benefit, not only to the quail but to the economy of Albany," Guthrie said.

In addition to the hunts on Friday and Saturday, there will be a dinner and entertainment tomorrow night and a concert Saturday night at the Albany Civic Center.

Costner is currently appearing in two major Hollywood feature films, Three Days to Kill, and Jack Ryan, Shadow Recruit.
