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?

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
