But Kicker Two (the Acorn Corollary) is this: eventually deer will either a) eat themselves out of acorns or b) get sick of them and look for something else. Think of putting a bag of chips in front of your kids and you'll know how this works. The key to success (with deer, of course) is to stay focused and keep hunting, knowing that even if you don't command a white oak stand, other nearby foods will eventually suck in your buck. And, finally, pay close attention to the weather, especially significant changes. The evening Dave shot his buck was cool, partly sunny, and relatively calm. More importantly, these conditions followed 2-1/2 days of humidity and high winds. Any time such a front blows through and is followed by high pressure and light wind, it's a perfect time to be in the woods.
