I was out today and figured I'd let everyone know that the persimmons are falling everywhere in w.tn. This is a great sign!

All of my simmons are completely void! White are void.
Some reds are loaded with very large mast. Guess I'll be hunting reds.

I see no persimmons or acorns in Henderson county. With the rain, my wheat sure came up fast and the clover I planted last year looks like it is recovering nicely.

Persimmons are very spotty around here.

Most dont have them but a few do.

I've seen alot of nice bucks over the years during opening weekend of bow eating persimmons in the afternoon, then they get nocturnal quickly.

No persimmons, no white oak acorns, and almost no red oak acorns on my place.

Stalker,

Just remember that persimmons germinate best when the seeds have been "scarified" (have the outer coating of the seed removed). Nature does this by passing them through the digestive systems of animals. The acids in the digestive system burn away the outer coating of the seed. I know it sounds gross, but you will have better germination if you collect the persimmon seeds out of coyote or raccoon poop.

No persimmons or acorns at all on our place that over the years held big oaks/acorns here in east TN as well. It's all from the big spring frost we had for 3 days. This is why we ask and were allowed to do food plots by the landowner in hopes of off setting the loss of the mast.

I heard the only acorns will be over 2000ft this year. Ones that had not popped out before the frost hit?
