 Southwest Georgia's Many Titles

Peanut fields and pine forests grace the land of our Southern heritage, which helps make the south west area of Georgia an annual hunting location of choice. There are lots of hunting preserves located in Southwest Georgia which cater to Quail hunts. Thus, Southwest Georgia is often called the Quail Hunting Captital of the World. But the hunting doesn't stop with just quail. Each fall, hunters from all parts of the US flock to Southwest Georgia to hunt the White Tailed Deer. For some, South west GA has become a second home!

This part of Georgia has been known by many titles as you have noticed. The southwestern part of the Peach State is sometimes called "Peanut Capital of the World" and "Quail Hunting Capital of the World". There is still one more. One of the many crops grown in this part of the state has given it yet another title, "Watermelon Captital of the World". The city of Cordele has even built a festival around the theme.
