Now that said I'm not talking every tree, and honestly I hope I never see a season like that, that would be too much food source and make it nearly impossible too pin down the X trees.
This is what I was wondering. There is one property I hunt that is full of oaks. And I wondered which area to target early, if they all hold food in a mast year, the deer could be anywhere and you'd be pushing them all over just walking in to a spot. I would assume they would then just mostly be hanging around the areas closest to their bedding areas?
Not all white oaks are equal. There are always preferred trees. White oaks in security cover seem to always get a preference and sometimes I think that it’s just the flavor of the acorn. I think that it might have something to do with the soil but IDK for sure.
