I have planted BFO the last four years, and am a believer! And if you had a choice, more sun than 4 to 5 hours would be better. But, since that is what you have, go for it! Half the fun of food plots is the experimenting and getting the dirt under your nails.
If you want to plant something right now just to till under before planting the oats the end of August, I would go with buckwheat. Till it under for some added nitrogen. Good Luck!

I plant BFO's every year but with only 4-5 hours of sun light per day I would plant winter wheat. Winter wheat works great on old log landings, logging trails in the middle of the woods etc.
I also agree with 410 about planting buckwheat for the summer months. Pike
