EHD outbreak in NY?

Recommended Posts

Your oak tree must be the only one in NY with no acorns cause every one I’ve seen is loaded 
He probably ate them all

I haven’t seen one loaded. Most where I hunt are barren to mostly barren. That goes for all species on multiple farms in Orange co.

My White Oak is loaded with Smaller Acorns this year. I am in Orange County also.

I am sorry to have doubted you. Also looks like you guys had a nice GTG aside from all the dead deer

No hard feelings, can’t blame anyone for being a little skeptical these days.

3S is mostly down with acorn production this year after many booming years. Some people are reporting occasional trees holding acorns and those tree will produce the most deer this year! You find one with acorns hunt it hard in years with few producers.

Wrong. Read above. Why would I lie? Confirmed by several others. Definitely not a bumper crop this year for our area. Maybe all the heat stress?

It was a terrible growing season this year In my area. We’re probably 6 inches low on the water table. We haven’t had two inches of rain since may. A lot of people’s wells are dry around here, hasn't been an easy summer.

Interesting thought about the heat stress. I’ve attributed it mostly to the snow and cold weather in May. Figured it might have killed buds. Not saying I’m right that was what I thought of. Perhaps you’re correct as well

I been finding decent acorns (mostly reds) down low, near available water and have noticed some pins.   I think there’s enough out there, especially with less than half the dang deer., in the places I hunt. ... smh

Acorns up my way are worse than avg. Whites dropped last year so there are none. Reds are poorer then most years. Last year was best crop I seen ever.

Is it every other year for whites? I always heard a few bumper years followed by a down year

Your correct mixed the two up in my post. Reds are on a two year cycle and whites are every year....well sometimes.

One property I own has mix of the two, whites are usually cleaned up before the hunting season starts. Reds drop a little later. My other larger property is up higher and only has red oak. Its a poor year so far unless they are really late dropping
