Thanks Robert. Mine's usually footprint soft to fine powder depending on how many times I go over it. I can turn it under in a couple hours so we turn it under several times to kill the weeds. The planting is a different story on a little 3 point hopper. Takes a full day or more. I've got too much area to deal with bags I'm either going to get a buggy spreader or about a 12ft Brillion like this. The Brillion would still require bags to load the hopper but maybe it would cut down on at least some of the work.

Yep, if you are serious about it this is the way to go. We went thru this decision this spring and weren't quite ready to make the investment in a grain drill. So we settled somewhere in between and got a Woods PSS84. While it's definitely no grain drill, we have been really pleased with it having used it on summer plots and fall plots now. We will likely end up with a great plains drill at some point, at least that's the plan, but for now, the woods servers our purpose well.

Get a nice heavy Brillion cultipacker (one that folds to a narrow enough width for all your roads would be the ticket), and just rent a buggy from whoever you buy seed and fertilizer from each year. Roundup everything 4-6 weeks ahead of planting and you'd have it whipped. Good luck and let us know what you do and how it works.

Look up RDH Outdoors or Biggs Farm Equipment and check out the stuff they sell. They buy large drills/planters and cut them down to food plot size. I bought a 6’ Great Plains drill and a JD 2 row no till planter from RDH. Both of mine have the fertilizer hopper so I can put out seed AND fertilizer at the same time. The GP drill plants on 6” centers and will plant over sprayed ground as long as it’s not powder dry and hard (it’s not a no till). It cut down my planting time tremendously as I only need one tractor to plant, fertilize, and cover. Both of these guys do top notch work as well. I am VERY happy with both the implements that I bought. They were well below the cost of buying new too.
