Long Beard Farms
to the Longbeard Farms, LLC website. My name is Dalton Dowdy,
and I grew up hunting here on my family farm in Jefferson County,
Georgia. I took my first deer at age 11 and first turkey the following
year. Some of my fondest memories involve spending my entire allowance
on buck lure, .22LR cartridges and turkey calls.
graduating from Georgia Southern University in 1998, I left Georgia
to attend law school in Mississippi. I hunted and fished my way
through law school but always longed to get back to the fields
and forests of South Georgia. After graduation from Mississippi
College School of Law, I moved back home in 2001 to practice law
and brought my Mississippi bride with me. About the same time
I became obsessed with Quality Deer Management and the thought
of growing quality whitetails on our family farm. While we had
always been selective about our buck harvest in the past, in 2001
I embarked on a quality deer management program for our farm that
has grown by leaps and bounds and continues to thrive.
have recently decided to open Longbeard Farms, LLC to a select
few individuals for limited hunts. Please allow me to state my
case for Longbeard Farms being a premier hunting destination in
the Southeast as well as giving you the benefit of my background
with guided hunts.
profession has allowed me the opportunity to hunt big game throughout
North America. I have hunted whitetail deer throughout the Southeast
and in Iowa and Missouri, mule deer in Nebraska, black bear in
Saskatchewan, Canada, Dall sheep and grizzly bear in Alaska, antelope
in Wyoming, and all subspecies of wild turkey in Texas, Nebraska,
Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Kansas and Old Mexico.
short, I know a good hunting operation when I see one. I've had
great hunts, but I've also had hunts where outfitters misrepresented
the hunting or outright lied to me. I've had my money taken by
an unscrupulous outfitter more than once. I know what a good hunting
operation should be and how it should be operated. In traveling
throughout North America and sharing hunting camps in various
locations I began to realize that the hunting I had at home here
in Georgia was something special. While I cannot guarantee a kill,
I can assure you that every aspect of your hunt at Longbeard Farms
has been carefully thought out and planned. From our gourmet meals
to our stellar food plot program to our expertly placed stand
locations you will find that no stone has been left unturned to
ensure that your hunt is an enjoyable experience and you are put
in the best possible situation to harvest a trophy.
live in Wrens, Georgia, with my wife, Amber and my two children,
Mary Dalton and Jackson. I practice law on a full time basis (except
during hunting season) with an emphasis in real estate, corporations,
and litigation. I want you to experience what Longbeard Farms
has to offer and what my family has been enjoying for generations.
