The Edmans: Holiday Deer Hunt

Doug and Christopher Edman are father and son deer hunters from Alpharetta, GA. Their first day hunting was Saturday, November 30, and there was a lot of activity in the woods. Christopher spotted two does, but decided to hold out for a big buck. At one point, he heard rustling and when he looked over his shoulder, he saw a whole heard of deer moving through. The deer were not the only wildlife hurrying through the forest. As Doug Edman sat in his stand Sunday morning, he heard a commotion right below him.


He quickly readied himself to shoot what sounded like a monster buck, but much to his surprise, there was no deer to be found. The noise below the stand was made by a flock of turkeys flying in. When Mr.Edman came in for lunch, he shook his head in disbelief and said, “I have just never seen a turkey fly, before!” After a meal of fried chicken, peas and biscuits, the Edmans headed out to the pond to shoot clays. Terry, SouthWind’s Assistant Manager, patiently showed Christopher how he might improve his technique. The father and son headed back to the woods, and even though they did not get a buck, they did not leave empty handed; Christopher shot a doe! We have a feeling that the memories made by this father/son duo will prove to be the best souvenir of all.

Matthew’s First Quail

Charles, Matt and Matthew Alexander represent three generations of avid bird hunters. Charles Alexander, owner of a construction company, brought his son and grandson down to experience ten-year old Matthew’s very first quail hunt. The Alexanders happened to be on their way to Thomasville to pick up a brand new addition to the family: an English Cocker Spaniel puppy. Imagine Matt and Matthew’s surprise as they shopped around the Orvis store and saw our newest SouthWind t-shirt. It features a detailed graphic design of one of our best English Cockers, Man. When Matthew saw the shirt, he had to have one in every color. The three hunters went on to enjoy a day of shooting quail in the crisp fall air. When they returned, Matthew (dressed in full camo, topped by his new SouthWind Plantation orange ball cap) excitedly spoke of how he shot seven quail, and what a good time they had. We are thrilled to have been a part of such a special memory, and we hope to see the Alexanders again soon. Charles, Matt and Matthew Alexander with guide Greg Harrell
