I have read that Blackjack Oak ( Quercus marilandica ) is noted for dropping acorns later than other native oaks. Can any of you confirm this? If so, when does the Blackjack begin to drop? And is it a sustained drop over a period of days/ weeks or an immediate unloading? Any other particularly late-dropping oaks ( native or otherwise ) that you are familiar with? I really do appreciate any input my Tndeer friends can share- HMH

I have hunted blackjack oaks during bow season in Illinois. I don't recall them dropping particularly late. I also haven't seen many in Tennessee. Northern red oaks and scarlet oaks are usually the latest droppers in middle Tennessee.
