my cabin gets acorn about once every 8-10 years. I have them this year along w/ a bumper apple crop. the deer should have a great fall. the hard part will be figuring out which tree the big one likes

Laurel is in the red oak family.  While in general deer prefer white oak acorns over red (according to the experts at least) they'll eat both.  Red oak acorns are generally smaller and more acidic/bitter but if you don't have a lot of white oaks around dropping nuts, the deer will eat them.  When the weather cooperates, white oaks will generally have a crop every other year, while reds will produce acorns each year, at least around here.

My wife called. The bear wrecked all her bird feeders. When I get back from FL, I will see if the bear found my deer feeder. I have the Reconyx Micro fire on overwatch

. I could but with my back, not an option currently. Heck, when I get back and able to hunt on Sunday, not sure if I want too as they always run down the hollow when I wack ‘em. Pretty steep hill back up
