Nothing does well in shade, but remember trees will lose their leaves in early November. Grazing rye or wheat will do well just about anywhere once the leaves are off. And in a small, now-shaded areas with little ground prep, I would recommend grain rye.

We have planted Turnips, Clover and Marshal Rye. I also have a new sponsor on my show Beaty Fertilizer in Cleveland. They have a developed a fertilizer specifically for food plots. You can see pictures of it at

Beaty Fertilizer is the bomb. They have a great selection of organic supplies and anything else you could ever want.
Any time you can get out to hunt, is a good day to hunt.

some shade is good, most is not, but clover thrives in partial because the sun cant burn it as badly. My choice is wheat and clover and wheat does well in pind clearings and always favors some shade in the least if produces. Photos below.....

The problem in America is not that ungodly people have said yes to ungodly things, but rather that Godly people have refused to say "no" to ungodly things.

I have a similar situation... Partial sunlight in the woods. I'm gonna get some winter wheat and rye, try to turn the ground a little with a blade, Lyme it well and sow it before the leaves fall. I'll post pictures when it's all said and done. Hoping it'll work out
