If you have a food plot for deer, or need to clear brush anywhere, do yourself a favor and invest in a scythe!
Imagine that you are maintaining a current food plot, want to put a new one in, or just need to clear some tall grass from your land and want to get the job done fast. What is the first tool that comes to mind to accomplish the job?
If your first thought was a weed whacker, your first thought was wrong. You’ll believe me after you watch this video of a scythe completely destroying a weed whacker in a grass-cutting tournament.
For a tool that was invented in 500 BC, the scythe still destroys the weed whacker at cutting grass.
In addition to its impressively fast and smooth grass-cutting abilities, what other benefits does a scythe give to a hunter managing a food plot or his hunting land?
It is low maintenance, doesn’t refuse to start on occasion, is much lighter, and doesn’t make any unnatural sounds.
The last thing you want to do is scare a big buck into the next county from the annoying buzz of a weed whacker.
If you don’t already have one, and have land to maintain, a scythe is highly recommended. Whether you are a hunter or not, the scythe hasn’t survived for thousands of years for no reason!
