that looks like an early summer mixture, but it should produce something. when i plant deep woods plots, i use my lawn arrator behind my four wheeler to "plow" the ground. it really turns the top layer of soil and prepares a nice seed bed after a dozen or so passes. about three weeks ago i planted 50# of sourghum and 50# of deer vetch in three of my plots. first time using deer vetch and i hope it pays off at $150 a bag. a good cheap plot combo is a winter wheat and oats mixture.

It will work. Almost all the plots I've planted in the last 5 years were done similarly. Some with the help of the lawn mower to clear the ground and some with just hard work. I've never planted that type of see in a plot but you can fertilize as you've stated, even doing it a couple of times lightly. The deer don't mind at all. If you get a lot of leaves on it this fall just run the mower over it again and blow them off/ chop them up. The deer will appreciate it. As a bonus any acorns falling in the plot will be easy pickings and the deer will gravitate to it. Hope you have great sucess!
