I have had very good luck with WTI NoPlow and WTI SecretSpot. but you do need at least 3 or 4 hours of sun per day on either.

I also had good luck with a product called Throw-and-grow and no I don't remember who made it. I just like thw WTI products better myself

I'm not in the Northeast but I have had good luck with very shaded plots planting WTI secret spot and no plow.  Haven't tried their new blend called bowstand but im sure its just as good as the others.  I have one plot that gets only filtered sunlight and with avg. rain the secret spot grew to about knee high, best looking plots I've ever grown.

WTI clover. The easy way to do it is find a small grassy field and burn it off in early spring. Not spray burning, but match burning. Then once the fire is out spread your clover sed with a hand sprayer and wait for the rain. Then once the clover and the grass get about 2 to 3 inches tall spray it with WTI Arrest. This is the most important step, kill the grass while it is small and the clover will take over and you will have years of good hunting over your clover. I would spray for grass twice the first year and then once a year around the 1st of May each year after. I have a clover plot I did like this that is 7 years old and still looks great.

the first thing you need to do is a soil test. if the PH is too low, you need to get it right before anything. WTI does have a few blends w/ a PH boost, so that will help. but if you want it to be good for years, you need to get the PH neutral. i don't want to be a downer, but i also don't want you to waste a bunch of time and money.

WTI no-plow, secret spot, extreme, bowstand... they are all good

good luck

All I know is WTI No Plow will grow in the bed of your truck.  --099-780 If that tells you where it will grow. I had spilled a little in the bed and where the groves had some old dirt in them,no plow grew quit well. Sold me on it.

Good point Growalot and often we also have No-burn regs during any extended dry spell during the summer and at least some counties and towns have more restricted no-burn statues and regs
