Everywhere. On our lease, whites are dropping like crazy. Chestnuts are like marbles, so abundant.

My place in perry county, decent. Definitaly off food plots and in the woods.

Me and Mike saw 2 deer out in the bottoms last night. They were standing about 600 yards out in the middle of that cut corn. Saw one copperhead in camp this morning while we were moving the new pooper.

I'm surprised at that Rich. We have a few Mountain Chestnuts dropping and that's it.

During bow season I will trade you properties.
I would much rather have little to no acorns. During the early part of the year I won't wait to kill does. It sure makes it tough to find deer with acorns all over the place.

My place in Perry has chestnuts dropping like crazy and a few reds. My whites and Chinkapin oaks are still holding. Even with the acorns on the ground though the deer have mowed the clover down in my plots in last few weeks.

Whites dropping fairly well here in Giles, but what acorns we do have are pretty small.

I found individual Mountain Chestnut Oaks that were absolutely pouring out mature acorns. But those trees were few and far between. I only found a very few scattered white, red, and black oak acorns on the ground, and all of those appeared to have been knocked out of the trees by storms or squirrels (not ripe yet).

The white oaks on my place in Benton County are dropping like crazy. The white oaks on my place in Madison County are just starting to drop a few.

Just talked to a couple of clients in Humphreys and they all say the same thing, very few acorns in the trees or on the ground.

Called my Wife. Our huge white oak in Cordova is dropping acorns like mad and they are not small. We have sprinklers on a timer so water was never an issue.

Last year one hit the roof bounced off and clunked me on the head, broke the skin. I must admit, I jumped a few feet.

I'm in Houston, right next door to Humphries for those who don't know, and my yard is absolutely covered with white oak acorns. I mowed the grass today and could not believe the acorns on the ground. I've seen this many before but never this early, normally when bow opens there will be a couple starting to drop but never anything like this.

Never ceases to amaze me how different acorn production can be across very short geographic distances.

I'm in Stewart, right next door to Houston.
Looks like a bumper crop of white oak acorns, but will reserve comment on the reds. Will say that opening morning of archery was like hunting in a hail storm of acorns, and acorns could be heard frequently falling in all directions as far as the ear could hear.

I "think" Stewart received more spring and early summer rainfall than Humphreys. Could that have made such a big difference?

I'm not seeing as much this year on the Madison-Henderson border. I wouldn't think it is due to rain, as my woods never really dry out. It kind of fluctuates from soggy to firm but not really dry. Maybe the trees took a little rest. In the woods are mostly swamp chestnut (white oak) and they have produced really heavy for the last several years. The willow oaks may have more than usual, but I don't usually pay attention to them as they are so small.

Yes it could. We've been extremely shy of rain after the prolific rains of the spring ended. We've had a soil-moisture deficit ever since early June.

I've noticed that we have way more acorns than I thought we did this year. All the woods are covered and a little of everything is falling.

Still seeing very little in the way of acorns on my place. You can travel down a dirt road through the woods for over 100 yards without encountering an acorn, and those you do find are primarily Mountain Chestnut. of course, peak white and red oak acorn drop isn't for another week or two.

To a certain extent, yes. I hate a bumper crop. The deer never have to move. But I'm worried there is so few as to not be enough of an attractant to draw deer out of the nearby bottomlands.
