mt,

Welcome to this forum. Many of us here have the same situation you describe. The short answer is,yes, you can grow foodplots in sandy soils.

A couple of suggestions:
1. You will need to do a soil test to find out what your site needs in order to grow certain plants (lime, fertilizer, etc)
2. Scroll back and read some of the threads on this forum. This question has been asked many times before and answered in some depth.
3. Get a copy of Ed Spin's book "Wildlife Food Plots" Available thru the QDMA.
4. If you a member of the NWTF, they have TONS of material available on what to plant for wildlife, habitat improvement, etc. Some of the best I've seen. Also biologists who will answer yr specific questions. Good luck.

Here is a link to an order form for Ed Spinazzola`s book.

Wildlife Food Plots
Easy as 1 , 2 , 3


Miturkey, you said you want to plant in the woods. For clovers or brassica`s, you will need four to six hours of sunlight a day.
