Maybe this cold snap will drop some more to the ground.


In my area, acorn drop usually peaks around Oct. 10. This year, we still had green acorns in the trees as of Oct. 25, although the freeze Thursday and Friday nights definitely helped bring many down.


Sure wish the leaves would come down too! Hoping the wind with this Halloween storm will knock a lot down

No shortage of acorns in my area either!

I'm afraid we're still going to have quite a few green leaves still on the trees at muzzleloader opener.

Leaves have changed dramatically just in the last 2 days. The deer are eating nothing but acorns so far where we are. We have corn fields I'm hoping the start hitting again hard in December

I'd think that the storms tomorrow should get rid of a bunch of leaves for ML.

Isn't it amazing? Juvi we had almost no color at all. Driving through Dickson, Hickman, and Humphreys counties yesterday, I swear the area was at nearly peak color. I've never seen the change happen so quickly.

This year's acorn drop has been truly bizarre. We finally observed a pretty solid acorn fall the weekend before Juvi. I thought the vast majority of acorns were out of the trees. However, yesterday, acorns were absolutely pouring out of the trees at the highest rate I've seen this year. I've never seen such a late peak acorn drop timing.

Driving this morning here in Hardin the roads were covered with leaves and the acorns are "raining" down. Good views in store for ML season.
