What do you see in New England for acorns and other nuts?
I hunt in MA and CT. i have never seen so few acorns as i have see this year. the deer are keying in on food. they are moving to the food. place where i always see deer are holding no deer this year.
it is a tough year.
I have found a few beech nuts and acorns. When you find them the trees that have them seem to be loaded. There are a lot more beech nuts than acorns this year. I live only about a mile from the vermont line in western mass. So if you find the trees that have them you will find the deer.
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
