GAME MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
We believe at Southern Pines we now have a complete Deer Management Program in place. We now have a food plot planning program in both the spring and fall. We also have a mineral/salt lick at every field as well as several places in the woods. We also have a spring/summer supplement feeding program with high protein and high crude fiber content. Before planting we do soil test and apply lime and/or other chemicals to maintain optimum PH levels.
Detailed below is a brief re-cap of our Deer Supplement Program.
A: We put out over 250 lbs. of minerals/salt
B: We limed all our fields last spring with 18 tons of lime
C: We planted several of our fields with clay peas for summer feeding.
D: We put out over 3,000 lbs. of supplement feed – 21% Protein
Sportsman’s Choice – Record Rack
E: This fall we planted all our fields in a biologic type seed – Buck Busters
This seed is very high in Rape – 3 different kinds and in Clover – 2
different kinds as well as Peas. We planted this same seed last fall and
it came up a solid sea of Rape and Peas and grew almost waist high. The
Clover from this planting came up this summer.
F: We built five new trough feeders for our fields
We truly believe we have a complete Game Management Program when you add all of the above with our Quality Deer Harvest restrictions.
