we just a some logging done on a hunting property that left us many logging roads, my question is, what is the best option to try and get some deer attracting plants or food growing on these roads? We are on the shady side of the mountain, getting little sunlight especially in the winter months. Our thoughts are maybe we can plant something in the spring when the roads are wet and muddy. Thanks for any help.

I would recommend frost seeding clover in late February / mid March. It worked great on our logging roads, but they get plenty of sunlight.

+1 for seeding white clover of some kind. Lack of sunlight hurts, but that's going to be true for just about anything you would plant.

This road section just got hit with gly in July, and a few weeks later I broadcasted ladino by hand. It's heavily shaded from the east and south when the leaves are on the trees, but it does get partial sun. So far so good.
