Owner - Harlan Starr

Harlan has been an avid outdoorsman since he was old enough to tag along with his father behind a brace of bird dogs at the age of 5. After graduating from the University of Georgia with a degree in agriculture, he owned and operated Chattokee Farms for 20 years, a 300 head commercial cow/calf operation. This lifestyle enabled him to pursue his passion, hunting and fishing, as well as focus on another hobby, wildlife and habitat management. Harlan opened Chattokee Lodge in the fall of 2008 on Chattokee Farms where 100% of the land is now devoted to wildlife and habitat management
