About Hardscrabble Plantation


This is where we are

We are located East of the Florida - Alabama Line. In the Florida panhandle. We are only 3.8 miles (5 min.) from Interstate 10 (I-10). Nestled between the Perdido River WMA and I-10. 


This is who we are

We aim to provide a hunt that is reminiscent of the hunts. That your Father, or maybe your Grandfather has told you about. Probably, an endless amount of times. These are commonly referred to as... "The Good Ole Days" This was a time long before man decided that fence rows, 2nd and 3rd growth timber stands. Should be mowed down to make room for the ever expansive growth. That has become the norm. Although we are located in proximity to such areas as this. We believe that you can leave all the stresses of that world at our gate. Come back in time with us. Remember the way it was... and still is at Hardscrabble!
