Ground Breaking Discoveries

Effective wildlife management just became easier with these tools

Years ago, when deer management was not as common or as well researched as it is today, I decided I would delve into planting food plots on my farm in Ohio. The idea seemed simple enough—a little land, a few seeds and the deer practically sprouted out of the ground like the alfalfa and corn.

This was an immense failure so I opted to use a little more horsepower in the form of a finicky gas tiller that belched and clawed its way through the clay soil like a dinosaur slogging through a tar pit.

I have a 8 foot  Leinbach  Cultipacker that the axle has a bow in it. The manufacturer is out of business. Can anyone tell me how to repair it. Thanks
