Food Plot Mowers?

Recommended Posts

lungslicer

I was just wondering what everyone has been using to mow their clover/food plots. I have been looking at a Agri Fab, but I am not sure if it is tough enough. I would also like something that can cut some small brush on our trails. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks guys!

I have a Swisher RoughCut Trail Mower, after a lot of looking around it seemed to be the best value and it has a good reputation. I only have 1 season of use with it but so far I really like it. I mow my driveway, atv trails and foodplots with it. Brush and small trees are no problem, my trails are better (and wider) than they've ever been before.

lungslicer!! Must be a doctor!!! Welcome to the forum!

I also have bush hog type of mower. It is nice to be able to cut off small trees and brush with it but the downside is that it throws the majority of the cut material to one side, it rests in your wheel track and that cut stuff can choke out your clover (or whatever you've planted) in your wheel tracks. You can minimize some of that by cutting more often so you're not leaving as much trash. An ideal mower would spread the trash out. But a nice thing about a bush hog type mower is that you can hit a stump or rock and keep on going without a breakdown.

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
