Deer may also be focusing on native browse because of the unusually warm temperatures we've been seeing and the fact that the vegetation is thriving right now (especially after the recent rains and no frost).

So far every acorn on the ground not allready eaten by a deer or squirrel that i have cracked open was rotten or dried up so small as to have no taste or desirability whatsoever. Crack some of them open and look at the nut. on the hull they look normal, inside they are unfit to eat in my experience this year. any time you see deer opting for the fields in the evening rather than the oaks it tells you just how poor the mast crop really is.

That is sad to hear. I had a guy I work with ask me (in a panic tone) what the deer and squirrels will eat. I told him they should be just fine. I dont know squat about theyre habitats from a professional perspective but they should be able to eat small trees, saplings, bark, and many other things to survive if they need to. Lets hope things are better next year.

The squirrels will die off. That's Nature's way. They follow J-shaped, "crash and boom" population dynamics.
