take immense pride in our food plot program as it was the catalyst
that started my journey in deer management. My father and one
of the best hunters I know, Jerry Dowdy, was planting food plots
in the late '70's before it was the "fashionable" thing to do.
As a boy I can remember helping him plant fall food plots on our
farm and I can remember him telling me that once I got done with
law school he was handing the task over to me! I accepted the
challenge and consulted with some local farmers while reading
everything I could on the subject of food plots. Now after a substantial
investment of time and money and a new John Deere 5625 cab tractor
our food plot program is truly something to see and has our property
teeming with game.
hunting lodges are agricultural ventures with hunting as a byproduct.
Nothing could be further from the truth with Longbeard Farms as
we are a recreational hunting area first and foremost with agriculture
as a byproduct. Our 300 acres of commercial agricultural fields
are planted annually with corn, soybeans, peanuts and sorghum
(no cotton here) and provide outstanding summer nutrition and
food for our deer and ensure that our bucks are getting the maximum
nutrition that they need for antler growth and development. We
have approximately 52 fall food plots varying in size from a half
acre to eight acres. Our fall food plots are fertilized and limed
according to an annual soil test and then are planted in a blend
of yucci arrowleaf clover, Dixie crimson clover, oats, and wheat.
This fall blend gives our deer palatable food from September through
July. Some of these plots are hunted and some are utilized as
"sanctuary areas" and are not hunted. Our food plot program is
modeled after the legendary "Banks Farm" method and the results
we see are unbelievably good for Georgia. We routinely kill deer
grossing over 140" B&C and weighing over 200 lbs.
primarily use 2 person ladder stands with shooting rails, but
also have ground blinds, enclosed tower stands, and climbing stands
strategically placed throughout the property. If you have a preference
as to what stand type or habitat type you would like to hunt please
let us know. Safety is our primary concern and tree stand safety
belts are required to be worn at all times while hunting.
food plots are large and the shot you are presented with may be
lengthy. We urge all clients to get familiar with their rifles
and be able to shoot effectively out to 300 yards. Our rifle range
extends beyond 300 yards and you will have the opportunity to
check your rifle's zero upon arrival. Custom "sight in" service
and load development are available to guests for an additional
only harvest mature bucks 3.5 years old and older. As always,
the antler growth on such a mature buck can vary depending on
a number of factors. I hate to place a "point restriction" on
kills so if you are happy with the deer feel free to shoot him.
Remember, it's your hunt. Make sure you will be happy with your
deer before you squeeze the trigger. You can't take the shot back
once it's fired.
encourage the harvesting of does as they eat so much better than
a tough old buck. Each hunter may take up to 2 does per hunt and
the meat will be processed on site, individually wrapped and frozen
for your return home. No button bucks will be shot and any such
deer taken will result in a $250 penalty.
work closely with a local award winning taxidermist and will deliver
your trophy to him for mounting, if you so desire.
