Walter Patton

Walter Patton is an older quail hunter who first experienced the thrill of a Bobwhite Quail covey rise in the wild on the same property where the Poetry Shooting Club is located today. Walter’s Aunt Helen had a wonderful Bobwhite Quail call mastered which will never be forgotten.

Walter first experienced pen raised quail with a family relative called Uncle Willie who raised Bobwhite quail and allowed the children to take a peek at his Bobwhites. Uncle Willie did not want the quail to see us looking at them and we could not play close to the outdoor pens. Today Walter is always looking for better ways to have the best flighty quail possible.

Poetry Shooting Club practices a Wildlife Habitat Management Program maintaining natural open range lands for wildlife. Day leases are done for dove, teal/duck and bow deer season. Poetry Shooting Club.

We are now making reservations so just give us a call and we’ll be delighted to set you up a hunt. If you have never Quail hunted with us, we hope you will consider giving us a try and we”ll do our best to give you an affordable hunt that you will long remember. Hope to see you all soon!
