hookset, sounds like you got the idea now! We plant most of our wooded roads in winter wheat and rye. We plant the roads that get good sun light in ladino clovers. It seems to work out good. The deer and turkeys use it more than you would think. I can't tell you how many times I've come around a corner and walked up on a feeding deer or flock of turkeys. I'm going to try and do turnips and rape again this year. The deer didn't seem to eat the turnips much, but not many of them matured before it got cold. I think I planted them a little too late. I'm going to plant them in July this year and see what happens. The deer are absolutely killing my clover plots right now though. I have about 3 acres in 4 fields and all of them are just laden with deer sign. They have pretty much eaten everything out of the beans and corn but I had wheat planted in strips through it. The wheat is still doing good and the deer are using it right now too.
These are pics of the same field. The first is before the season started. The second was after we tilled strips and planted the wheat. The field had soy beans, corn, milo and sunflowers. It did well and the deer seemed to use it for bedding cover as well.
