Default Acorn Crop

What are y’all seeing for acorns this season? I really haven’t noticed a lot of white oaks with acorns but seen the reds have a few in them.

Its shaping up to be a decent year for acorns. we had a good wet summer for the most part in my neck of the woods. some wind, but nothing to terrible. I anticipate a good acorn crop unless you experienced hurricane or tornado winds some months ago. I will say the persimmon trees around my house have produced the most persimmons for the longest period of time ive personally every seen.

Oaks are loaded - best potential crop I've seen in years. Of course, for me that's bad news, because my best hunting is when food is more scarce. But if I can convert acorns on the ground to hunting success, it should be a good year!

I hear ya. I walked around 12 miles between fri and sat morning and almost every oak I looked at with binos were loaded. I found zero concentration of sign which is usual for this time of year and the abundance of acorns.
