Default Acorns are dropping like crazy!

Don't know if it is just in our area or not, but the acorns are dropping early this year. I think its becasue we had that cool weather with all the rain the past few weeks. I went and scouted one of our farms yesterday with Shawn and found a little honey hole. There were several trees in the immediate area dropping and it just looked like a feed lot in there. Tracks and droppings everywhere! Even a couple nice rubs and scrapes. I actually put out my camera on a scrape just to see what was using it. We usually only hunt this farm during the rut, but since the acorns are dropping so good we decided to check it out early.

Ty and Larry hunted a bean field last night and only saw THREE does! In this same field just last week they saw 23 deer feeding in it including two shooters. The deer in our area are already pulling off the beans and hitting the nuts!

What are you guys seeing?

I was at a friends house this weekend shooting bow's and I thought I was gonna end up in the hospital. They arent just falling they have a mind of their own and they were trying to kill me for sure.

Are all of you Missouri guys hunting north of I-70? I haven't seen any dropping yet down in the south central MO.

Just went out behind m apartment and they are loaded up with acorns but still green and pretty small. Probably got a little longer before they drop around here.

Last week, were the beans still green or had they turned yellow / brown?

What about now that they aren't really using the field any more? What are the beans status?
