Default acorns

I'm noticing the acorns dropping in my area but i'm not sure yet if its going
to be a heavy year or light year as far as the amount that will drop . How is the acorn crop in your area ? heavy or light ?

I see a lot of red oaks that have them this year. I've actually seen some dropping already, not sure why. I've also seen some white oaks that have them. That's a good thing.

Due to the drought here, a lot of the red oaks are dropping already, but the acorns are still green and look under-developed. We've gotten some decent rain over the last week, though, so I'm hoping that'll help...

here in VA we are not going to see a large crop, but it will be sufficient. We will see lots of deer though since the winter was so incredibly mild. I am predicting the state record is broken this year...and I have a hunch where that may be. (just for a side note. I cant hunt the property with the huge buck on it, but have seen it and know a friend who hunts the land).

Not going to be a mast year here in Virginia. We had some late frosts last spring. Never good for the oaks. I'm seeing some acorns, but less than last year.
