Superior Article

What a well written and comprehensive article. A combination of nostalgia and gratefullness come immediately to mind. Nostalgia for how it used to be and gratefullness that people exist who care about the land, the wildlife and bringing back a tradition of things done well.

Upper Rappahannock

Growing up hunting next door at Payne's Island I know the how special the area is. The bald eagles like it there too. It is great to see a good future for the property. This is property management at it's best.

Excellent Story

Good overall story presenting this amazing historic property and the plight of "Gentleman Bob"--the South's native upland gamebird--and the challenge of reestablishing and preserving habitiat. Well done, VL, for highlighting the issue, and for gently pointing out that hunters are, as they long have been, on the forefront of conservation.

Great Story

This hunt and story took me back in time thinking about how things must have been when these plantation houses were in their prime. I'm really glad that the Wheat's have taken over the property and really hope i get to hunt there one day.
