Privacy Hedge Part Shade

Looking for some advice on what to plant along our lot line for privacy. We're in zone 5b (Milwaukee, WI) Ideally, we'd like some sort of evergreen to provide year round privacy, but most of those require full sun. We've been working on clearing out some of the dead brush and plan to cut down some of the off shoots that have grown up, but in the summer when the bigger trees get their leaves it's partial shade.

I did some research and was settled on planting a row of hicks yews, but just read that deer like them. We haven't had a big problem with deer in the past, but we do see footprints from them in our yard.

Looking for any ideas on what to do with this space. Thanks!
