Whats the acorn crop going to be like this year? :thumbs_up or :thumbs_do.

I've been looking at some trees where I live. My guess is a marginal :thumbs_up unless we get a lot of rain and soon

I would agree with Jim.

depends on what region. id say most of the west side will do pretty well, the southeast delta may not have any hardly

haven't really been in the woods much, but from what I am hearing and seeing, the acorns in North central AR are small, if any at all, and I have been seening some at the cabin already falling :dontknow:

I went out and did a little looking around. Where I hunt, I found that most of the water and willow oaks are loaded, and most other white oaks are bearing a good crop. The Red oaks are real spotty. Some along the creek are ok, but on the ridges I didn't find any that are producing this year. This is on a WMA that surprisingly got plenty of rainfall this summer. I live only 20 miles away, and they got several good soaking rains that missed us completely. It looks like I'll be bowhunting the creek bottom in early Oct bowseason.

*note to self* "look up next time in the woods"

I have not really noticed how the acorn crop is this year at all.... I guess I need to start paying attention!

Havent found many whiteoaks at all. I went out this afternoon to check a couple more spots and found several big whites loaded with big fat acorns and several reds allready dropping. The deer tracks were unbelieveable since the rain. I found a few rubs and beds, also some fresh droppings. Should be a good spot come oct.
