Hunt, all clover is great. med red and whites are perennials. Crimson is an annual.
I personally wouldn't plant rye grass. there is very little nutrients or draw. Will a deer eat it, sure. Only positive is it's can grow fast, It's grass.
I've learned here that when you make a claim, you should also site a source or people will challenge you. I found many, here is one of them from real tree
1. Rye Grass
This food plot plant – which is commonly confused with the superior cereal rye – is the worst plant in the history of food plot plants. While some similar and sub-varieties of rye grass contain slightly higher protein, most of the rye grass available at your local feed store is low in protein, carbohydrates and palatability. It’s also hard to get rid of once established. But a few people swear by this cool-season plant for its hardiness, and so it remains.
Plant Instead: Cereal rye is an attractive food source in fall and winter. It only offers 15% crude protein, but it’s high in carbohydrates, which deer need during colder months.
Don't fret though, something is better than nothing.
If you are going to try and change the PH, lay it down in the winter right on the snow in like feb or march when it's starting to melt. Pellet lime is faster so they say...but even the powder will have time if you do it early. its cheaper too.
Depending on deer density, ag in the area and what you plan to plant is what determines when you plant. There really is no rule, but brassicas and soy beans can be your biggest headache. no rain and over browsing will hurt you bad. Over browsing will always happen with brassica if planted early especially in a smaller plot. a doe and 2 fawn can wipe out a 20 x 30 in no time. Your situation calls for plants that regrow well...clover, WR like you planted.
Fall plots are the easiest by far and quite honestly can be your best plots. new green in the area can be a huge draw.
Good Luck this season
