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.

    Acorns are a deer's best food source for natural survival. The only downfall I see is someone stepping on them and falling as though they were marbles underfoot.

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

      BTW, that was a heart breaker game against State.
      Gary, i believe about 8 years before an oak produces acorns.

        Same problem here. Find the freshest sign, and hunt it. Or hunt where the acorns are falling right now. Deer like the fresh ones I.m told.

          I'm here in in Central South Carolina. First year I've seen white oaks in the past few years.

            Thats an idea. Just hope they don't rot before I can toss them back out

              We just found a huge community scrape the other day and put a climber inbetween that and the oak ridge.

                    FB: your comment confuses me as to why you put it in the context of quoting me? How does what I said have any bearing on the point you were making?
