Normally this time of year I’m putting finishing touches on hanging archery stands and deciding my preferred hunting locations for the first couple weeks of archery season.
I base those locations largely on food, particularly white oak acorns.
Obviously, I’m not doing any last-minute bow season prep while stuck here in Cordova, Alaska.
My August scouting, before I departed for this possibly-never-going-to-end Alaskan odyssey, turned up some white oaks, but nothing special. A couple of my spots had really good chestnut oak crops.
Anyway, turning the talk back to Virginia, can other hunters chime in on what they’re finding in terms of acorn mast out there?
I’m not looking for exact locations, of course. Just general information like the part of the county, elevation, terrain, etc.
Also, I know folks have put their trailcam submissions on hold while I’ve been gone. But now that I have wifi access and am back to being on the computer for hours every day, feel free to send away. We need to get some shots of bucks out of velvet on here!
