HM, maybe if you can beat the deer off long enough you could collect a few & ship them to your TH pals so we could grow them??  Nice looking tree, wish I had a couple hundred here!
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

We checked cameras and feeders this past Sunday. Since June, our deer have been destroying 1000 lbs of corn every 2 weeks. Little rascals were hitting the feeders hard and our corn bill was much higher than I would like to admit. Now, with the acorns everywhere, they have finally slowed it down. The feeders were about half empty. That's good and bad. Corn is expensive, acorns are free. However, corn was at set locations. Our 426 acres is covered in mast producing trees so deer can now feed anywhere. With this being our first deer season on the property, we don't have the patterns down yet. Should make for an interesting season!

Nice looking acorns! Should be some very plump deer!
