Question No Meat In Nuts

We have had little rain for the past 3 months in southern Indiana things are very very dry. I have noticed many of the acorns I have cracked open are full of powder or tiny nuts kernels that look black or dark brown. Anyone else seeing this? What will the deer look to as a food source when the acorns are not good? Will this force them into the harvested feilds more than useual? Thanks

Hehe...when I first read the thread title, I though maybe you were trying to get the most out of your deer when you butcher it.

Here in Iowa, we have an abundance of acorns from the white oaks this year... Here it (at least on our property) depends year to year on the type of tree that are producing the acorns the red oaks were heavy 2 years ago, and the whites have held the honor the last 2.

And here from the title I thought you chickened out on something. LOL!


Did you happen to notice any real small holes in the shell? I've seen some type of worm or pillar get into them and eat it. What I've noticed with drought and acorns as well, is that the whole shell suffers in size too, not just the "nut".
