Upper Michigan Food Plot

My camp is in the UP of Michigan. I had a soil test last year. PH was real low and I put about 4 tons of lime on an acre. I should be over 7 now. In the fall I put on 300 lbs or annual rye. Had a great field. Never got high cause every day ther were 20 deer out there (mostly does and fawns and a few small bucks).

Come May 1st I want to get a perennial plot going. Plan to turn the rye over and ....here's the question ...do what? I know whatever I plant will include a couple varieties of clover but what else should I put in there? Looking to have something that's strong in spring, good in summer, and strong LATE into the fall.

Any suggestions appreciated.
