Overall Activity Status: By several accounts, acorns are drying up in areas that had a good hard mast crop. Deer seem to be returning to standing corn, green fields, and food plots. "I have friends hunting standing corn and hay fields, and they haven't seen a deer since the first two weeks of the season, until this weekend," Tylutki said. "Acorns and hickory nuts are still a factor, but they're slowing down." For the last couple weeks I've been championing green fields and apples, and many of you have confirmed that, but I've definitely seen a drop off in activity around my apple trees in the last week.
