Just noticed the same thing. Lots of very tiny acorns on the ground already. I've never seen them this early, and I have never seen them this small. My wife and I have been wondering what this will mean. Will we see more activity at our food plot and feeder this year?

They always seem to start hitting the ground just before archery season in my experiences.

The acorns production is usually better in years where you have mid to late summer rains. Spring rains then dry weather usually keeps the production down but if you get those mid summer rains, look out.

cheers some good posts... rofl under neath were it says: colt.45 it has me listed as : THF Trophy Hunter.... The zigline, if thats whats its called tis more true: postaddic ... Not a trophy hunter, hunt for grillen & chillen... Still enjoy the old school methods of hunting... Looking for signs, tracks, can some ties kick dirt next ta were track is,difference in color... Looking at droppings, had put a video rofl the dip test on texasHF for laugh's... As mentionef in,think it was my first post... Dont clamb ta be an expert... scratch Had heard one time that oak trees have good years & bad, rain plays a factor, they take lots of nuetrants out of ground.. Were i was raised, no baiting.. Acorn trees, natural funnels, creeks water sorcess... Archery hunts great for learning deer patterns.... Best wishes this season.. Archery is just around the corner... flag

Loc: The last LF ranch in S. Texas
Our place has been very inconsistent over the last five years. First year hunting there we had a bumper crop. Last year we had quite a few but small, and year before very few with the year before that non at all, mainly because of the drought.
This year I haven't seen one acorn yet, and usually when the trees are completely barren, the deer really hit the corn feeders which is when we've seen our biggest bucks early.
Looks like it may be a good season for early bucks hitting the corn!
