Scott Rhodes graduated from the University of Georgia, Warnell School of Forest Resources with a BS in Forest Resources in 1996. As a SC and GA Registered Forester as well as a Certified Wildlife Biologist, Scott has consulted many landowners through the past 27 years helping them manage and develop properties to attain their individual land ownership objectives.
Growing up in Hampton County, Scott developed deep roots for land management and natural resource conservation, as is evidenced by his lifestyle and career path. He spends most of his free time managing family property near his home, hunting, and fishing the coast with his family.
Scott and his father Tombo were the recipients of the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) “Deer Manager of the Year” Award in 2008.
As a passionate conservationist, Scott founded the Low Country Game Bird Foundation (LCGBF) in 2022. The LCGBF is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to promoting the conservation, management, and traditional hunting practices of North America gamebirds. In the first two years of inception, the LCGBF has raised and directed $172,500 to wild turkey research by working with University of Georgia, University of Nebraska, as well as Mossy Oak Gamekeepers.
Due to the widespread population decline, the Foundation's focus is North America's Greatest Game Bird, the wild turkey. Currently we are putting all our efforts into funding wild turkey research across the country. However, any of North America's game birds are a possibility for funding at the discretion of the Foundations seven board members.
We too hope you share the same passion for our game birds and will help us promote the conservation, management, and traditional hunting practices of North American game birds.
Scott lives in rural Hampton County with his wife Virginia and their two daughters, Jane and Kate.
