    Status of this year's acorn crop, persimmons, other deer favorites

    What's everyone seeing as far as acorns, etc in the woods? I haven't really checked out the acorns. As far as the persimmons they are falling already and are not close to being ripe. Must be the dry weather making them fall green. So it doesn't look like persimmons are going be worth much. Crabapple and apple trees around here are loaded though.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher

    well I have some acorns on some tree's seem like a bad yr here, and what I seen are mostly on the scrub oaks, not the reds or whites

    Apples are far and few too
    I think we got warm way too fast most friut trees bloomed super early then we had lots of frosts after they bloomed

    so poor yr on fruit trees here

    The early spring followed by a few frosts killed all of my apple blossoms, I maybe have 5 apples all together. Acorns are so so, not a good year.
