PlotMaster

Recommended Posts

Does any one out there have any experience with the PlotMaster 400 or any other food plot type equipment??

How well do they work, how many acres can you get done with an ATV? How long does it take per acre on ground that has been in corn this year?

And any other comments or suggestions. I have about 3-5 acres of food plots planned for next year, but could have more in the future.

Thank you.

Yes, I have used the Plotmaster 400.

There is one thing I tell everyone in regards to creating any new food plot.

If its sod, ya better be ready for a challenge unless you have a farmer or someone that has large equipment to break that sod up.

If you are talking about an area that was recently tilled, or an area that doesnt have a foot of roots below the surface, then you are going to make some progress.

The plotmaster is pretty slick to say the least. One thing to note, do not try to pull this thing with anything less than a 400cc ATV. A 400 works, but I would recommend going a tad larger if at all possible. Its got a lot of stuff digging into the turf!

You can plant pretty much any kind of seed with it. And it does a very nice job too.

One other important thing to note, do NOT expect to take this through a field in one pass and plant seed. We did plenty of prep tilling with the unit before we ever even started seeding. I love the commercials or advertisements that show units like this running through a fluffy field of soil... That doesnt happen on the first pass.... Not even kinda.

The nice thing is that it does a very good job of helping get things ready for planting, and does a nice job getting the seed into the soil as well.

If interested, shoot me an email. I know where ya can get one for a weekend if you want next spring.

      Went out this morning to check the ice on both sides of my peninsula.    Found ice anywhere from 1-4".   The area  found 1" i did not expect it.   There are also small ice heave air pockets with only 1 or 2" of ice on them and open water underneath.   Now with the fresh snow is is very hard to distinguish these little heaves or thin ice.   I am going to wait a few more days here yet and I know the ice here well.   I heard a report of a 4 wheeler on shoe, this is more than stupid.   No fish is worth your life.  Be safe   Don

      You'd get a good laugh at what the consistent check cashers on the ice fishing circuits, have been have been using for years. $4.99

      I am always looking for better ice rods but I hate paying more than 50 bucks

      You could start by calling some resorts.  I've found that sometimes they have some for sale or other people have them for sale at the resort.

      north metro lake had consistent 2-2.5" yesterday around noon. Headed back tonight to check a couple  more lakes.  It would be nice to hit 4-5" before warm weather sets in  later this week

      Me and my wife are looking for a skid house to buy that is already on  or by Mille Lacs and we  will move it to the resort of our choosing. Looking for a 10x20 open to smaller and open to bigger. If have any leads on any or have one you'd like to get rid of let me know. Thanks
