Re: Food plot suggestions.
after helping a friend build several food plots useing plow/disc, we found the plow turned up all the rocks, and the disc could not break up the sod. i was useing my 38hp kubota with a set of ford 3pt disc, which are quite heavy for 3pt disc. still couldnt touch the old sod.
last plot i helped him build, he rented a 20hp tractor with a rear rototiller. best thing we did! that worked great. just set it a few inches deep and made a few passes. lime/fert/seed. we use a piece of chain link fence behinf a 4 wheeler and drug it over plot after seeding to get soil contact.
it was easy to do, and worked well.
once you establish the plot, you can go back in spring and frost seed over any ares that may need it.
Your never to old to learn something stupid
