You could grab one handful of them and that would be more than I had on my whole place this year. Bad year for acorns in my area.

Actually I have bagged up about two trash bags worth, would it be worth me taking them and dumping them out 20-30 yards from my tree stand?

Yup!

I pay my son a penny for every acorn he picks up and puts in a 5 gallon bucket for me.

x2 - about to try the same.
@work I raked up about 100lbs (2 feedsacks full) in about 10 min. From red-oak trees. huge acorns.
My place has mostly post-oaks, and acorns are small.
Wondering if the deer will like these big ones from red-oaks? will be finding out...
Gonna also try on hogs too (recently visiting my place near denton).

Those photo's look like my yard for the past few years but this year there are almost none. At the lease in central Texas we have a few but not as many as last year.

If they are used to post oak acorns they might turn their nose up to the red oak acorns. Post oaks are much sweeter.

I'm in the same boat. I was about to get knocked out every time I sat in my tree last year had several deer spook from acorns hitting my seat. This year it has been a fantastic year for rain the best in a long time and I have almost zero acorns.
