I hunt Granville, Durham, & Orange Counties and have seen heavy localized acorn production in places. Some areas are loaded, some not so much. Most of the acorn crop is gone where I hunt and the deer are using the thicker green places (cutovers with honeysuckle, pastures, thickets, etc.). Deer usually leave the red oak acorns if there are still white oak acorns to be had. It seems like someone said that there was a natural chemical change that took time to happen before the deer liked to eat them. I'm not sure about that, just what I'd heard.
Luck Counts, good or bad
