Wheat would be excellent for what you are talking about. If it doesn't make too good of a stand the first time, just simply reseed it. It is almost like the cockroach of plants, it really can live anywhere. The soil in the woods is highly acidic so you mite have to add this or that to get a great stand, but you should be able to get a decent one with just a seed spreader

good luck

I tried throw and go in woods with very little luck. I agree with the mineral block plus I would add a food source. I was scattering some corn and some rice bran pellets and was having luck attracting deer to that location.

Even though a lot of the seed companies advertise "throw and grow" I haven't had much luck without first putting some lime and fertilizer on. You also have to think about how much sunlight you will have after all the leaves on the trees have filled out. It may be different where you are but the ph in my area is really low and needs to be addressed before thinking about putting seed down.

Default Cheap an easy

First rake all the leaves away until you expose the dirt then take a garden hoe an loosen the soil just a little then go to walmart and buy a 10lb bag of rye grass seed from the garden area not the sporting goods section plant it heavy and rake it to cover the seed in two weeks you will have a hot spot.

Fall Rye (not rye grass) would work in an area like you stated above.

Default food plot in the woods

People don't believe me but deer love rye grass more than fall/winter rye, they also love bermuda grass.

What time of the year can you plant, rye or bermuda grass? could you still do it now and expect some outcome?

If you could get a little rain to get a start on the seed, Bermuda grass will grow big time. It has a very deep root and is drought resistant. Can't hardly kill that stuff once it's started.
