You'll also need some sunshine (a minimum of 4 hours direct sun per day) and some moisture for your food plots. But, if there are already lush plants growing there, we can assume that is taken care of. Bottom line, don't plant in the shade and stay away from super dry locations like sands, rock outcroppings, and areas that get hit with scorching temperatures or high winds. Of course, stay away from excessively wet locations as well. Your best indicator is always the native vegetation growing there. If the area is growing bog plants, it is too wet. No plants at all, it's too dry, or too dark.
