Personally, I don't share my buddy's concern. First, the early acorn drop might work in a field-hunter's favor; when food sources are abundant (like now) deer don't stick to any one thing very long…Meaning that in a couple weeks, they may well be back on the alfalfa again. Second, I've got some great white oak stands to hunt, places I've scouted specifically for scenarios like this. And finally, disappearing deer are part of the fun for me. I appreciate a slam-dunk as much as anyone, but any time whitetails throw me a curveball, I enjoy figuring out, and adjusting to, the new pattern.
So how about your area? What are the hot food sources right now?
