You can probably find an old JD two row planter. Don't overlook the old horse drawn planters. We used one to planter about 11 acres at our deer camp. they are easy to convert to 3pt or can be dragged around. I have a couple of IH ones and plates are easy to get. For corn or soybean these are ok but clover I just hand broadcast. If you have an open area with good sun I would suggest alfalfa. I also use the one row planter for corn on the back of my farmall cub.

All you guys that have too many deer why don't you lease hunting rights to other hunters or sell day hunts. Some guys down here make more money from the hunting than they do from farming or ranching the same country. Most still do both. Sounds to me like you are missing out on an opportunity for additional income. Tony

Yes I can afford it. We here in new jersey are allowed to hunt deer over bait. Yes they do damage to shrubs and yard plants and there is a good amount of vehicular damage but that’s everywhere We’re allowed unlimited does per day and bucks If you buy the permits So it’s worth putting in food plots to make the grow bigger

i have had good luck planting small seed with the following.
sow seed with 3pt seeder, mix seed with pelletized fertilizer if your seed is very small, sow at a rate that you have to go over the field twice, splitting your tracts.

I think the key to a good stand of grass is to roll the seed in with a cultipacker.

The JD 71 planters work good and Cole Planters work good too.Almost any older corn planter will do the job you want.As far as Clover I mix Crimson Clover in with fertilizer and broadcast it to
plant also usually add turnips and Oats to the mix.Oats will really grow in a cool damp Fall and Deer love to graze them.

No law in Virginia against hunting over food plots or crop fields,matter of fact I put in quite a few for other hunters every year.Its against the law to bait which is something like putting out shelled corn in a pile or a bunch of apples in a pile.Over in WVA they are allowed to shoot deer over bait.

I have a john Deere 25 B planter, dealership can still order parts as needed
you can set or change the row spacing easily, still buy plates for them,
need to check as other brand planters you may not be able to get plates
3 pt hitch, works good, these were made in the early 60's

but finding a good condition, small corn drill may be a challenge cutting up a 4 or 6 row planter also has its challenges as it may not have 3 pt hitch, if that is what you want.

I agree with others, deer eat up my sweet corn patches, strip bark off my young fruit trees, bang up cars and trucks, I have no use for them, but that is just my opinion,

I see older AC planters (I think like 600 series) that use common plates (same as JD with adapter) that have been converted to 3 points. Common parts are still available. Usually someone cuts apart a 6 row to make three 2 row planters.

IHC or JD would be my guess as to what would have some parts available

I use a John Deere 246...plenty of them out there, new and used parts are readily available. If you don't have a tractor with 3-pt, get a 290 pull behind and use with ATV. As far as clover goes...spread by hand with a hand broadcast spreader.
