Mast year?

Anyone think 2020 will be a good year for the White oaks?

For me in the Northeast we had very scarce whites last year so I'm hopeful that they are going to produce well. I've been looking but not seeing any, I have seen some trees with a good crop of reds though.

Been super dry in my part of the upper Midwest, if we get rain it should be fine but I wonder.

We had a pretty late freeze here in WPA this Spring, so I am not expecting any white oaks. I think there may be some reds since they only produce every 2 years. About time for me to take some binoculars and check out some of spots to see what mast there is.

I'm from the western part of pa as well. The 2 White oaks I have in the yard look pretty loaded up but the area I hunt I wasn't seeing them on the trees like they are at the house. Keepin my fingers crossed haha

I have seen some white oak in Eastern WV recently which surprised me because we had frosts up to June 1. I have seen some red oak too. Too early to tell if it’s a mast year but we are due for a good white oak year it’s been 4 or 5 years since a good white oak crop.
Some do. Some don't. I just might...

We had a pretty good crop of whites in my neck of the woods last year, so I’m not expecting much. After the first week of archery season the deer will be out in their normal haunts that no one else goes to and there is plenty of browse and good forage for them out there, it’s just a little more tricky to pinpoint where exactly they will come out to when they leave their beds.
How bad do you want it?
