My hunting ground is kind of different. It's been fairly heavily logged and while there are a number of willow oaks and a few live oaks, there are no white oaks. The deer don't seem to eat the willow oaks at all and very little of the live oaks. What they do eat are the Cow Oaks (water chestnut oaks). They are big trees and are pretty reliable acorn producers. Even with the late frost last year some of them produced well. They really don't start dropping well till the second week of Oct. usually. Hopefully by the time I can get away to hunt they will be HOT! If you can find a cow oak that's producing you can kill a deer.
