acorns

6 posts in this topic

I just read a story on acorn and hickory nut production on the east coast, and I'm curious: has anyone noticed a change in acorn crops this year?

I heard the acorn crop was huge this year, which was a reason the deer were slower early season lots of food in the woods

Ummm yeah, my back yard would prove that theory. Tons of the dang things and the tree rats loved it! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Depends on where you live and the species. Trees go in cyclical ebbs and flows with fruit production, especially when left to pollinate naturally.

I found that white oaks were pretty sparce this year, but the red oaks had a ton of acorns.

I have 31 white oaks in my yard and there was no shortage of acorns there. Wish I could find a market for acorns and leaves. I'd be a rich man.

Maybe I should give Acorn Rage a call?

    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today 
    • Say no to drugs, like sugar.  Yes, sugar is a drug.
    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.
    • That should make things interesting
