if you can find a pull behind planter,,,you wont plant with out it,,my hunting buddy bought a john deer 2 row planter,,cost 350 $ it will plant no till if you catch the ground right....i bought the 2 row cultivator for 150 $ a tractor is a must for this old heavy equipment....with scrap metal prices high this old stuff is getting cut up....we do have a small hare that we drag with a 4 wheeler ,,,best 35 $ ever spent.i will get a pic of it

inside corners are comfortable for deer cause there is cover close on 180 degrees. Thats why I asked about the small plots cause cover is close 360 degrees. So its more comfortable and maybe that would make the big boys show in shooting hrs or visit more often. Just me thinking which gets me in trouble sometimes. And I learning that the shape of the plot can be more inviting to the deer. The hour glass shape is suppose to be best. then there is the orientation to north for optimum plant growth.

you never know what you might find. I tend to scan older farm property as i travel looking for that one implement that would help the food plot planting.
