I am on a lease in Morris County. I took a nice 8-point opening week. I have not seen much since. There is a great acorn crop. I talked to another hunter whose property borders the lease, and same story. Very few deer seen. I am thinking it is because of the acorns. Any thoughts?
Have a place on the Sulfur River, this time of year the rut is over an them bucks pretty much lay low and rest up . It gets real hard hunting not impossible but darn tough for about 2 to 3 weeks. Next good shot is Christmas to end of season we get a little secondary rut about that time actually my favorite time to hunt to get a biggun it usually wet very cold and miserable and I don't see a lot of deer like earlier and very few bucks at all and takes will power to stick it out but if you see one he's usually a goodun. The largest east tex buck I've taken was after Christmas.

I live 12 miles southeast of Naples. It is hard hunting. I have found tho that after the acorns run out I have better luck by hand corn under the same acorn trees that they were feeding from initially. They are already used to that being a food source area. Just my 2 cents but maybe it will help out. Good luck
