I used the Whitetail Institute No-Plow last year and it worked decent. I had to rake away the leaves to get to bare ground and lime and fertilize, but it actually grows pretty decent. It isn't the strongest attractant at first, but for some reason after gun season, the deer were in there a lot. You can see pictures of what my plot looks like if you go into the Wisconsin Land Management forum, page 18 is how it looked to start, it did get better as the season went on. I would say that it is a LOT of work to plant no plow, but if you're dedicated and don't have the machinery to do it the easy way, then you can pull it off. Biologic Hot Spot, which is supposed to be a no plow did not grow at all for me, so you may want to stay away from that. If you have any other questions about the No-Plow, let me know.
