I sent this to Tylan, but I wanted to get everyone's opinion.
Iím wanting to put in at least 4 small plots in the woods. Example would be 40 yards by 60 yards, should I stick with a no till mass produced product? What would you suggest I put in these wooded plots? Our bow season starts second week of September so Iíd need to put something in early to mid august and ideally leave it alone.
Below is the property we have, orange is the boundary, red circles are where we hunt and where Iíll be putting the plots. Thereís nothing planted in any of the fields, and cows are being put on most of the open fields. Thereís lots of ridges and old logging trails where Iím at.
Though this may not be a whole lot of help, I'm also doing something similar just on a smaller scale then yours. I'm using Evolved Harvest ProVide Clover & Chicory mix. Though I'm putting them all in with no equipment just hand tools. Aslong as you test the soil an use lime and fertilize correctly, you should be able to get a food plot anywhere you got some decent sunlight an rain/moisture rich ground you'll be fine. That's just from my research an slight knowledge of gardening, first time tryin this product though.
I am going to be looking into this over lunch hour, but let me first say it appears you've got a great area, that'll go a long way! Fuzz...you recommend on mix I am sure to state as well! :D

A good rye/wheat/oat mix is a real good kill plot attractant. Another is 1/2 clover, 1/2 brassica.
Good diversity will help.
