    Is it worth it to collect acorns to attract deer to non oak bearing areas?

    I think that even though its natural forage it would be a no no to collect them from point A and move them to point B. It probably wouldnt be worth doing it anyway.

    I could get to 5gallon buckets in 30 mins for sure. I have these crazy machines, totally automated very thorough. They are really easy on fuel.

    Might be called baiting in some states. Iowa is real narrow minded about that. No sense of humor.
