I hunt in Ashe, Allegheny, Wilkes, and Grayson Counties.

I don’t see much of anything for white oaks this year.... seems odd to me, am I alone?

Whatcha got in the trees this year?

In yall's opinion or experience will deer utilize acorns from trees that have been cut, acorns that would normally fall in several weeks?
They are Clearcutting now laying down tops filled with acorns near where i can hunt.
You think/know if they will be of interest to the deer?

Yes!

IMHO.....

They will especially enjoy the leaves of red oaks. Should have the same affect as “hinge cutting”. I would expect the deer to be all over them immediately.

The red and white started falling in Orange County a week or more ago. Every storm we get knocks more down.

I was doing some bushhogging on the property I hunt last Tuesday. The sawtooths were loaded, as they were last year, the year before that, and the year before that. That’s why I love’em. Native or not, they will have acorns every year. Only acorn they’ll bypass the sawtooths over are whiteoaks, which on that property, I’ve seen no acorns this year.
