What our friends say

"Where else can you find a National Football Hall of Fame coach who worked as an assistant coach under Bear Bryant at Alabama, guided Auburn through its most successful decade, and grew up on a farm quail hunting? If you love good fellowship, good times and college football, regardless of your allegiance, Coach Dye will be your host for the most memorable hunt you will ever have. Auburn Oaks and Crooked Oaks Preserve has become a valuable partner in helping me build the type of business/client relationships that we all strive for and has been a haven for building lasting memories with my children, parents and friends. The guides, cooks and entire staff are First Class! Over the years I have hunted at numerous quail preserves throughout the Southeast and none of them can compare to Coach Dye's Auburn Oaks and Crooked Oaks. It is what the term "southern living" is all about!"
