Well first forget the pull tiller with your atv..The ford with a disk is more. If you get the grass cut down low and disk it a time or two no reason the plow will not turn it over enough to disk it again and plant or sow what ever. What is the purpose of the food plot. What do you want to plant? Have been doing it for years and know a lot of short cuts. Let us know what it is you want to sow or plant.

Jm, I bowhunt for deer. My place is in SW WI. I was thinking about three small plots. One on a ridge top in the center of my land. In that I would plant an early season food like clover or some mix with clover to pull the deer to the middle of the land early getting them accustom to the place (I have bedding all around). Down in my ravine I have a spot covered with multi floral rose so I would cut that all down and plant either another early plot or maybe a fall plot. I usually hunt the ridge above the ravine and deer cross both length wise running the ride and go up and over towards the center ridge top. I should back up and mention my 35 acres sits next to a 200 acre AG field. When they plant corn I have a lot of deer. This year it was beans (odd year cycle beans then corn) and I had fewer sightings. Finally on the west side of my property I have a small water hole and some apple trees. In that area I was thinking a small late season plot since the apple trees drop fruit all season long. A late season food plot could take over when the apples stop. These are wild apple trees that I fertilize. One tree in particular still had apples that the squirrels knock off up to a few weeks ago. The deer know this and cruise by for a sweet snack.

What I am really doing is thinking two years ahead when we get beans again. I need something to pull the deer in from the corn fields that other farmers have down the road. The water hole I put in was a good start and I think a few small food plots strategically placed can't hurt.

We are surrounded by a 4400 acre wildlife refuge.
That is good and bad but have about 260 acres and we do plant a few food plots to keep the deer out of the real fields. Turnips make good fall greens that deer like. They go crazy after sunflower and real cheap winter feed is sow wheat. The deer will graze it all winter. Should not take much to get you a food plot. The multiflora rose may be hard to get rid off without spray.

I HATE that Multi Floral Rose. I will be spraying that for sure. Thanks for all the help. Looks like I can use what I have. My disk is a three point type. Is there a way to get it to bite deeper? It seems to rise and fall with the tractor and not dig in..........
