Black gum fruit are a favorite of fox squirrels. In the early fall if you find a tree dropping fruit there will usually be fox squirrels nearby.

Very interesting.

Black gum tree leaves are one of the first to start changing color in the fall. I have seen their leaves starting to turn red as early as late-August.

I'm going to try and remember to look for that next year.

Well southernhunter back in the days of our youth there were few deer in TN but there have always been lots of hungry squirrels and squirrel hunters here in TN and when we got older we went to school and universities and tried to learn all we could about our great old state and its trees. We white boys could be smart back in the day and back then we were not called nerds and other derogatory names that some call all white boys in our schools today to discourage there learning the knowledge needed to keep our sport and country great.

I have the same tree right next to one of my deer stands and wondered what type it was. I was hoping someone would say that deer loved them! Oh well, maybe the whiteoak tree next to it will entice them. This tree is on the edge of a field.

BSK, is this the same berry? I took this pic a few days ago:
