I hung a set today in Goodrich and the acorn crop is outrageous!!! Everywhere i stepped
Thats not a bad problem to have....unless of course thats the case everywhere near you then the deer dont have to travel far to find food. But being the southern half of the LP, finding food usually isn't to tough for the deer
I have some starting to fall in Alcona County, but they are smaller than normal.
I’m not seeing much for acorns around my place in Calhoun. I haven’t taken a real hard look but I’ve got probably a dozen or more mature oaks in my yard, both red and white, and none of them did real well it seems.
Just came back from the Keweenaw and the squirrels and chipmunks are eating apples because acorns are few and far between. There are about a dozen oak trees in the yard and I don't think I saw a handful of acorns.
We worked at our camp over the weekend. The gypsy moths have done major damage to all of the oaks, red and white. The acorns are almost nonexistent in this part of Arenac County.
Dang! Did those damn moths wipe out the entire northeastern half of the LP? Ive seen a lot of reports from several counties in the NELP about gypsy moths doing a lot of damgae.
Next year it'll be Gladwin counties turn.
I looked up at one of my smaller pin oaks near my blind and it was loaded not sure about my bigger trees, haven't looked at them yet.
Saw lots of red and white akerns yesterday when I broadcasted my rye grain on my plots.
I'm seeing acorns on the ground, but not on the branches, unless they are way up there.
Gypsies have definitely been bad in Alcona county no doubt. Along with oak wilt for the past few years. That being said I’m seeing more acorns then the last two years put together. I can even see acorns on the trees that are defoliated from moths. They do seem smaller however. The areas that weren’t hit by moths have a mass crop this year. This is good news for our deer hurd.
