    How does the acorn crop look this year??

    Anyone been in the woods lately? We going to have a nice heavy crop? When will they start dropping?

    Here in S. Tx we are in the midst of the worst drought since they've been keeping records, so I doubt we'll have any acorns. I just hope my live oaks survive the stress.

    Hope you've had normal/good rains and a good season sitting over a nice white oak full of those sweet deer candy acorns.!!

    Lookin' good here

    spent the time, energy, and $$ to fertilize a ridge littered with white oaks- there is no comparison with the ridge we chose not to fertilze - the ridge we treated greened first this spring, has a heavy canopy, and several trees with acorns as big as my thumbs. Trails are coming in from every direction - appears to have been worth all of the work.

    This is actually good for next year.When oaks are in a drought situation survival is all they do.Next year you will have the biggest acorn crop you have ever seen.

    after 5 years of bad drought, we finally have gotten a fair bit of rain the last 6-8 months. The oaks look great here this year.

    we have both northern red oaks and white oaks in our yard, there are plenty of acorns on both but they are not very large yet and none are dropping.

    The squirrels seem to be working overtime around my house. From one tree to the other they go , many nuts are hitting the ground. I think I will be doing some squirrel hunting. So tasty in the crock pot they will go !

    i have a oak (not sure why kind) in my front yard and they really seem to be dropping heavy this year. It kinda hurts when you catch one with top of your head point down but hopefully it will help spell success this year!

    In Northern MO we will have plenty of white oak and red oak acorns from the looks of things. Here is what one white oak tree looked like back in early June. The acorns are now big enough to tell that the tree has them from 20-30 yards away.

    The big if in the equation is "if" we get some rain. Hard to wish bad times on the folks along the coast, but we could sure use a small hurricane or two.

    I have not even looked actually where I hunt. In 2 weeks I will be headed in to trim some things I wanted to do during the winter but never got around to it.

    I was checking a few spots on one of the properties I hunt and saw them on the ground as I was walking out and about hit the ground with happiness, they are there this year. 36 days to go.

    When again is the best time to hunt around the acorn trees?

    I was out this morning walking around with the dog and the boys and we found a decent amount of acorns off the White Oaks around my house. This fall looks really good. I gotta get to the one stand of White Oaks and getsd some lanes cleared out.
