What angle would set my disc blades to make a food plot?. They are set inwards right now. That's for aggressive digging right? It will be heavy vegetation come next fall even after I mow. That's another question. How do I get rid of the thick clumps of grass after I mow to make it easier for the disk to penetrate the soil?

Thanks

To break up the clumps of grass in a field, they need to be mowed, then sprayed and left a couple of weeks to die, then plowed under with your disc. I go one direction then a second time a different direction then a third time in the original direction. and yes the more aggressive the better as long as your atv/tractor can pull it.
You did not ask for this information, but you are going to need it when doing your plot.
If no livestock, then I will start the arguments. In my opinion no question about the easiest to plant 100lbs oats/ 50lbs Austrian winter peas per acre. 100lbs of 13-13-13 fertilizer. Plant Sept 15 - October 1. Pray for rain. Put a feeder at the plot and you will have the best of both worlds. If you have livestock they will need to be fenced out or you are wasting your time and money.
In the perfect world of food plots you get your wife to do it!!!!!
1. August 15. mow area to be planted.
2. August 15. spray area to be planted with a round-up type of weed killer.
3. August 25. plow dead plants under
4. September 15. plow field one more time.
5. September 15. fertilize and plant oats and peas
6. September 17. have it rain on your field and two weeks later everything is starting to come up.
7. October 1. still waiting for rain (in real life). bet don't worry, seeds will not go bad and will come up when it rains.

Spray the plot with Round Up or similar generic first. Then mow it after the vegetation is dead and plow it. Then if needed, keep plowing to work the dead vegetation back into the soil. I try to plow my fall food plots up in late spring and keep the land plowed/sprayed till I am ready to plant in the fall. Plowed ground holds moisture. Right now I have my summer plot areas plowed holding moisture. With all the rains I have some winter weeds in them now and will lightly disc them as soon as it dries up a bit. The deer are hitting those weeds also, so it is not a bad thing.

you also can use a landscape rake or even rippers on a box blade to remove clots it just takes forever

Don't touch that disc. You will end up spending a fortune at pervis bearing.

Best thing todo is get you a good 16' fire break and back burn it.

Then disc it.

Skip the Roundup. It has been moved to "Probable Carcinogen" at this point including links to causing prostate and breast cancer, as well as leukemia. There is not a compelling need for this application. Maybe there are times and places it is needed, but having fun making food plots for deer is not a must have situation.
