Acorns and Beachnuts

Postby NYarcher » Thu Sep 03, 2009 5:56 am

Was out walking and noticed that alot of the oaks and beach trees are already dropping. Anyone else seeing the same thing? Gotta figure the wacky weather this year has contributed.

One of my sons and myself were out checking spots for possible stand placement this afternoon in Mendon . Saw acorns on the ground from the White Oaks but none in the trees .

acorns started dropping aug. 24th at my house, exactly 1 day later than last year (I keep track yearly of such events). there are tons of them this year around my house. i pick up the ones around my yard, soak them in liquid c'meredeer and dump them at the oak near my stand. weird, I always get a deer at that stand...
You can't eat the horns, but it sure is difficult to show off your meat when you have guests over...

Very good crop of acorns this year, both here on the island & up at the farm. We still call it the farm, but it hasn't been a farm since the early 50's. Nature has so thoroughly reclaimed the land, you'd never know it was once a farm.

We have a lot of Oaks in both places & I know how those deer love those nuts. All the more reason to control the rat population ... or sorry, I meant squirrel population ... for every acorn they eat, they bury 20 more.[:@]
