pheasants,I use a soil pulverizer for my plots.I bought it several years ago for putting in lawns when I was landscaping.It is very heavy and well built and doesn't require adding extra weight.
It does a great job of tearing up roots and rocks and grading to get a nice seedbed.
After seeding I just adjust the toplink and use the rear roller as a cultipacker to ensure good seed-to-soil cantact.

I understand I don't know the whole story here and access may be the issue, however I do 1/4 acre plots with a 50 hp tractor and a 7' tiller.

A 1/4 plot and 100hp tractor could be a hand full. I did 6 plots today ranging from 1/8 of a acre to 1.2 acres with the 50 hp kubota a 7 foot tiller. I wouldn't have wanted much more tractor in some of the places I was.

ATV spreader, sprayer and disc does the trick for thew small stuff. Generally tho, the earlier you spray and allow the roots to rot up, the better the discing results. Spray in the fall and by spring, sod will be easily tilled.

Had a gut spray in mid May this year and tilled the end of July and it went well.

Brad do you ever use a cultipacker for bigger seeds like rye,oats or peas?I'd like to get one for the ATV but the buggers are expensive.

I haven't planted larger seeds like you mentioned, but a small cultipacker does well for the small stuff. I biught a cultipacker "pup" at a mud sale a few years back and use it on my plots.
