Huge Acorn Crop

We found more acorns than ever at some of the spots we regularly hunt and the deer have been hitting them since October. We are still hunting around them now with the muzzleloaders and it seems there will be acorns on the ground for the next few months. My buddy was able to get a great buck while hunting over the oaks in October. Has anyone else seen a huge number of acorns this year? My buddy was also able film his October hunt.

I agree with 2 and 3. Although I rarely ever laugh in life as it is. Certainly not laughing over killing an animal.

No nuts at all on our stomping grounds this year. Very few last year. Animals going after ANY food source. Blessing to have the heavy ice week or 2 back and knock down huge amounts of browse! Scored half dozen with the flinter over toppled trees thus far...

Red Oak Acorns in southern 2G were plentiful, however they rotted inside. I don't know why.

Some parts of 2G had great red oak crops that were viable but the vast majority were rotten. In the part I was hunting, hickory nuts and red oak acorns started falling heavily in august. I did not notice worm holes then, but by October it was tough to find an acorn that wasn't rotten. someone mentioned army worms as the potential culprit.

I’m not going to stomp on anything, I appreciate that you like the video I get a lot of people that hate that I post any sort of videos. And we just get very excited and I know that my buddy was so excited because he has been working year round to try and make his hunting area better. I know about 3 years ago he could hunt for a week without seeing a deer and now he sees deer almost every sit. Thanks for writing a post.
