  • What are you seeing for acorns this fall

    So far I am not seeing squat on my white oaks, have to keep checking but seems like it might be a little off. Hickory are going crazy but that just drives the tree rats wild.

        Deer moving all day here as well. Haven't notice the acorns yet but will check it out soon. Probably due for a poor crop. It's been so wet. We usually get the best acorn crops when its dry. Weak to no acorns when its wet.

          Not a single acorn on any of the oak tree's in my yard, and I have White, Red, and Pin oaks...

          To be honest, I think it will make hunting a bit better. Should really push them into my 31 Kill plot good :D

            I would agree EJP - the 31 plots should do well this year.

              I have more luck when acorn crops are down a bit simply because deer are moving a lot more to find food. I have spent a little more time and effort shoring up a couple of food plots I've tinkered with in years past. Two years ago when we had such an awful acorn crop I had a personal best season so we'll see what happens I reckon.

              I made the mistake of getting on ArcheryTalk forum yesterday and got my blood pumping again unfortunately it's only July.

                So I noticed yesterday my driveway, which is surrounded by white and pin oaks, was literred in teeny tiny acorns... they do not look like last years acorns, and they are dropping much earlier. I don't know if they are stunted because of the dryness over here on the shore this year or not?

                My 31 kill plot is going in thursday afternoon, friday looks like a good slow rain day for good germination. Hoping we get 1 day a week of a good rain until our season starts on sept 11th. Here at the house we also had real late beans, they are only about 8" tall right now, and they are pounding the neighboring farm which had early beans that are about 3' tall... should be a good transition soon, with my kill plot getting some early afternoon love before the walk out into the big fields in the evening.

                    I did a little scouting on the white oak flat behind the house today and didn't see any acorns. I did see more deer sign than I've ever seen back there. I followed the sign and found the beech trees on the hillside behind the flat were dropping an amazing amount of beech nuts this year, and the deer are hammering them. I never knew deer even ate them but it's something I'll definitely pay attention to from now on.

                      I also have a beech tree dropping nuts. Squirrels appear to be getting them. The pin oaks on our property are loaded as well as the chestnut oaks. The white oaks don't seem to have much going on. Red oaks are slim too.

                        They're bigger but fewer this year in SW VA. We had thousands of tiny acorns last year. All the rain we had early this year turned that around.
