Groundhog Disc?

6 posts in this topic

I just saw an ad for the groundhog disc. It looks like it is a narrow disk, about the width of a 4 wheeler. It mounts on the receiver, and is pushed into the dirt by the weight of the ATV and rider.

Has anyone used one of these? Comments?

I am rather intrigued....

I have seen both good and bad reports on it. No surprise on that I guess.

The one thing to watch out for is areas that might have rocks. I guess thats a really bad thing for this type of disc.

The good thing about it is that you can really crank up the speed, and the faster you go, the better the soil will get worked up. BUT, going faster means when you hit something,,,, hold on....

I can see the problems with rock. It just looks so slick for tight spots, and with the weight over the top it looks like the bite would be pretty good.

when I saw it at fleet farm I thought the price was going to be under $200. there isn't much to it - pretty small. When I saw the price (i think it was $400) i started looking around for more pieces. i couldn't believe it.

That does sound a bit pricey. I got my Quadivator for $500 but I found a used one on CraigsList.

Of course I haven't used it yet since we found someone with a tractor who did some planting for us. Probably try it out around Labor Day.

If it works well, I won't mind the price so much1

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
