Wayne and Cathy have lived here for over 20 years. Wayne did a lot of quail hunting with his dad back in the 1950's and over the years quail hunting has taken a backseat until about 8 years ago. While visiting Nebraska he met up with a couple of hunters who loved bird hunting. When Wayne returned to Alabama he didn't return alone. He had brought back a Brittany spaniel named Rusty who had been trained in Nebraska by Jim Keller and from this grew the hunting lodge. Cathy is always busy cooking those delicious southern style meals to keep a hunter going and as she will be the first to tell you there is no better way to complete your hunt than to have quality conversation about the days hunt over a delicious meal.

In order to assure every quail and pheasant hunter that visits Indian Creek Hunting Lodge has the most opportunities to bag birds, we raise our own game birds every year. With flight conditioning, restricted human contact and in-habitat early release, the flush and flight characteristics of our birds are very similar to those of wild birds.
