    Just so you know, I hate you guys. I MIGHT get out for a day or 2 after Turkey Day.

    That is usually my M.O. too.....
    “America, it is said, is suffering from intolerance — it is not. It is suffering from tolerance.
    Tolerance of right and wrong, truth and error, virtue and evil, Christ and chaos.
    Our country is not nearly so overrun with the bigoted as it is overrun with the broadminded.”

    Day 1 was a bust. Saw a whole lot of NOTHING!
    The only deer sign I found was a new tree rub I found about 11. No shit, no scrapes, no animals at all, except crows. I heard crows all day. A squirrel finally showed itself about 3, shortly before I had to hike back to the truck. And only 2 shots heard all day.
    I will be hunting a different area tomorrow.

    Good call to change location. Yup keep moving until you see some action if hunting state/Fed land.

    That looks like it should have been decent in those oaks. Any white oaks around? Deer like those acorns better than red oak although they eat the red oak too.

    Can't spit without hitting an oak. Not alot of acorns on the ground this year.

    I found that deer will gobble up the red acorns after the first major snow of the season melts.

    Thinking the snow washes some tannin away ?

    Might be the freeze itself bring sugars near the surface like with sugar beets??? Don't know...
    but I do know they prefer white oak acorns over red.
