    That is a burr oak, the ones at my place are not dropping yet neither are the reds. I have not pulled the chip in a week or so but the feed is back to being gone.

    Dear should be packing on pounds with that amount of acorns on the ground. Great for their overall health going into Winter

    Found this oak grove on the public land today. Hundreds of trees in a small area. I've never seen anything like it.[​IMG]

    Looks like that might be a good killing spot!

    We have a lot of oak trees on our lease. I’ve been hunting the place for 10yrs and haven’t had any luck hunting acorns.
    The deer just don’t seem to hit the acorns. There’s not a lot of food sources around us, it seems like the deer should be hitting them but I’ve never seen one eat them.

    Haven't started dropping in Michigan yet, have them over my yard and can really hear them when they start dropping on the steel roofs.

    Still dropping like crazy, I was outside all weekend working on the house and even when it was windless they were coming down, walking thru the yard crunching on acorns.

    Checked my oaks out yesterday, they are freaking loaded. Pecans and persimmons have put on heavy as well.
