Is there a such thing as having too many white oaks dropping acorns on your property? Because that is the problem I am having on my lease right now.

    Yes, if there are acorns everywhere, there is no reason for game to be in any one particular place. Makes it hard to determine where to hunt---kind of pick a place at random and hope for the best.

      LL, they are also dropping like crazy here in Jersey. I planted a couple that had a white root coming out in my acorn bear bucket.

      How long does it take a white oak to grow and start dropping acorns?

      BTW, that was a heart breaker game against State.

        Well, sooner or later, they all get eaten. So look sharp.

          Don;t think anybody in the world thought that State would have pulled off that last second miracle

                Yeah, countryroad is pretty well spot on.
                If you can, determine bedding areas and/or water sources. That may help you somewhat as that's the next most important spots.

                      We know all of the bedding and water sources. Right now we are trying to set up on trails in between everything.

                        Not when the does come into season. They'll be feeding and bucks will be cruising for them. Dewman's right.

                          Big acorn years are tough, but it gets better as the season progresses and more of them get eaten up. My philosophy is that since the food is everywhere, ignore it and hunt the sign.

                            Has anyone collected the acorns while they are falling and, after all the trees are bare, using the acorns as food?

                                Lot's of folks carry the 9mm. In fact, several federal agencies have dropped the .40 S&W for the 9mm.
