are there any food plot mixes that grow good with out lots of sun
If you have deep woods you might look at what is there already that some fertilizer would help. I have fertilized oak trees with big success, other things like greenbrier, crabapples, persimmons, and honeysuckle will benefit too.

I went to a siminar held by evolve harvest. I talked to the rep awhile and we hit it off pretty good. He told me one of the best things he ever did was to fertilize the natural brouse. he sprayed liquid fertilizer on honey suckle and other brouse. He said the big boys hang back from the fields til after dark and a good way to pin point them in the woods is to fertilize a section of brouse. He said they will prefer the fertilized brouse over the non fertilized due to it being tastier. This was comming from a rep who's job is to sale seed! Something to think about anyway.

Backwoods Blend

I have been using the Wildgame Innovations Backraods Blend for my deep woods plots. All I bring is a rake to get to the dirt then sprinkle some Backwoods Blend - No Till Fall Food Plot
and create a secret food plot. The big deer like the cover of the woods so I usually hunt a tree stand in the deep woods a few times a season.
