THOSE FIRST ACORNS

Post by crooketarrow on Sat Aug 18, 2012 8:00 am

Looking out my window seting here typeing. drinking my morning coffie before starting my day. Theres 4 huge 300 year old white oaks in my yard and 3 others across the fence in a pasture field. One of those trees is 30 yards away at my back fence, a water trouths across a fence under the oak.
For the last 3 morning there's been the same doe with twin fawns. A 6 point that looks to be her fawn from last year. And nice 2 1/2,100 inch 8 point. None of yhe really mature bucks come there in the day light. To far from cover.
Their sucking up those first acorns that hit the ground. I see this every year about this time when those first nuts start hitting the ground. If you kmow what to look for while your scouting everything stays the same from year to year only the bucks die and change.
I live on a farm in farm land. 5 Miles from the mountains those oaks on the lee side of the mountains those white oaks are falling good by now. And deer have aready changed thee feeding patterens to incluude the acorns.

Seeing the first of the white oaks starting here as well. I got underneath one, and looked up, looks like a bumper crop. That will be nice, we had almost total mast crop failure last year on 80% of the areas I hunt. Made things difficult early on, with so many fields being planted in corn and not soy because of the high corn prices.

Yea, the acorns are nice here (WV) in my yard and around fields edges on the farm I live on. I have 4 ,300 year old white oaks in my yard and 3 others right across the fence in a pasture field. The acorns a huge all the rain we've had.
Acorns are like apples you have a good year bad year. And red oaks are slower yet. Unlike a white oak tree, a red oak tree only produce every other year.
FERTIZE THOSE OAKS YOU'LL HAVE GOOD YEAR GREAT YEAR. Then years there's little or no mast years you'll have trees with acorns. To hunt and it won't deer very long to find acorns are there every year.
