How do you think the mast crop is going to be this year? Last year was a very heavy crop here in the Lehigh Valley. I'd never seen so many acorns on the ground at once. and then to see how the deer were prefering once type over the other was neat to see. At SGL 205 they were hoovering up the acorns from the Bur oaks then they were moving onto the white oaks and saved the chestnuts & pin oaks last. I cant wait for archery season to open up.

Should be a decent mast crop up in our area due to the rain. At camp we have mostly Red & White oak and the White produces bi-yearly. There was alot of white oak in certain areas so I'll be checking different sections of the lease for the producing trees this fall.......if that fails I'll head Northwest to whack a corn/alfalfa doe up at the farm. ;)

I am not expecting a bumper crop of acorns this year. Seldom does bumper years follow bumper years. As Phil said the white oaks only produce every other year so if they produced last year I would not expect many this year.

You guys that might be a good thing to have a low oak crop this yr. The deer will travel more in search of mast crops versus holding up in heavy mast crop areas not having to go far.I'm looking for that very scenero here in Kentucky.Should play out here for a record deer harvest.

The white oaks produce every other year but trees mature at different times so you'll have to scout to locate the trees producing this year. ;)
