Like BC said if the conditions are good it will grow, When I first did test plots on my property the ones on my southern slope did the best, but I'm inclined to believe its because that spot is hard for the ravenous deer to find. Also steer clear of oak trees, another of my test plots was under some beautiful old sugar maples and I didn't see a huge red oak near by when I planted, During the winter a pack of deer/maybe a bear went through and plowed the ground up looking for acorns and that plot only had a few sprouts. The leaves are to tough on oak for the seng to come up through as well. But if its your first time spread the seed out a bit, find places you think are adequate and next year if those do good, load them up with more seed, A little bit every year till you get your own seed started.
One of my plots that did well was just inside the tree line off my blueberry fields, I planted what I had left on me on my way back to the house and to my surprise quite a few took off, You just never know
