Default Cart and Planting food plotts

Wondering if anyone has used your cart
pulling a small ATV disk harrow for breaking up
soil and planting food plotts .

How did it do ?

I know guys that use thier 4 wheelers to do this
with a little added weight to the disks and it works fine
but I was wondering about trying it with a cart.

Thanks in advance,
BCW

I have alot of experience with food plots, I had a Kawasaki Mule 1000, which was much like a cart, only twice as heavy, and it would pull a disk, but over time the belt got very hot and started smoking. I wouldn't recommend a cart for pulling the disk. You would burn the belt up and they are just not made for that abuse. The type of disk I had was also ruff, it was the flip over type. If you had one that was adjustable, then possibly it would work, but it wouldn't cut deep enough to plant.

When it comes to food plots you best bet is a four wheeler, or Rhino/Mule. My mule was a older model and just not made for it.

let me know if you have any more questions about food plots.

I agree with mulecart on this unless you have a cart with v-twin engine. Your going to need some torque to pull a disc. I use a cart to pull a small gas powered bushhog (44 inch cut).

I didnt know if it would work out or not
with the ATV harrow . But I figured it was worth seeing about.
What part of TN are you in ? my family lives up there and Im
gonna try to move up when the houseing market picks back up
so I can sell my place . Mt brother is in East TN ,Englewood
Sister and brother inlaw is in Athens Have family in Decator.

What do you plant for your food plotts there ? Where I was thinking about
was in S. Ga. on a lease about the same type of soil Hard...
Good to know you have experience with plotts.
Would you recomend a Mixture of seed or ... and what about the time to plant. Have you planted anything for Turkey ?

Thanks again mulecart76

Thanks Spriddle,
Does it pull the bushhog with ease or are you struggling .
That was my next question cutting some shooting lanes
and entry paths to the food plott Kinda funnel the deer
to the plotts.

I have to hunt from the ground anymore since being a amputee
cant climb .
I just wonder if the bushhog is worth looking into more .
If I could find a decent used one.

Thanks again

Actually it pulls the bushhog really well. I started to use my Rhino but, to be honest, the cart (yamaha G9) was easier to work with and pulled it just fine. The cart has a smaller turning radius than my Rhino and can really get in and out of tight places a lot easier (as long as I don't need 4 wheel drive). I have some dangerous areas on my land where my tractor could tip over so I use my cart to bushhog in these areas. I have some pics somewhere here I think of my old G9 pulling the bushhog: under spriddle's corner somewhere I think. The bushhog is actually a 'bushhog' and not a finishing mower. I got it at TSC (Tractor Supply Co.) and it is a Swisher brand. It will really cut the brush/briars/small trees.

I don't see the pics of my old G9 pulling the bushhog but I have some at home. I'll try to remember and post them sometime this week.

My dad has been a die hard duck hunter ever since.......well before me anyway. He lives it 365 days now. If it's not duck season outside it is inside his cabin. Him and all his hunter friends have a great time. Every Saturday, no matter what, they get together at his place and cook one heck of a breakfast and then hit the lake wether hunting or scoutting or whatever. He was suppose to go on a big hunting trip to Arkansas last week but they all desided to hunt Old Hickory and then mayby travel to Camden in a week or so.

I live close to Nashville, Lebanon, TN. I have couple friends from Athens.

I have planted wheat, rye, rape, turnips, clover, alfalfa, and other many other things. I tried buying and mixing myself, but I found that best route is to buy already mixed seed. I like a clover and wheat mix myself. The broadleaf plants are better for up north, in our area the deer will have something for the winter months. I like Biologic myself, it is expensive but worth it. Clover plus and Maximum are my favorites. If you want to go cheaper you can check out there packaging and get the seed from the feed store. I have tried spring plots for turkey and not been very effective. Unless you are willing to disk, spray to kill everything, and plant you are wasting your time. Spring plots are hard to maintain because of weeds. If you have a tractor and some time it maybe worth it, For now I am sticking with Fall plots.
