Some are right now both low and high. The rest are soon to follow. Talked to a guy who saw a bear climb a white oak opening morning for the acorns.

I have seen them on the ground and actively falling in North Hall, White and Southern Towns Counties. They are spotty though..... that is a good thing as far as patterning goes.

The property I am on in South Hall has next to nothing for white oaks this year, and the reds are slim as well.

In Habersham, the ones on my place are falling already since the week before bowseason. In white county and slightly higher elevation only the largest trees are dropping the younger trees have acorns but no sign of one on the ground.

Elbert had been dropping nuts but the dry weather seemed to shut them down, with all htis rain though bet Tuesday a.m. will be a killer. This coming weekend should be prime time for oak watching bowhunters

not many at all at the house, walked in the woods directly across the street, on an old logging road, path was loaded. Seems like the very very mature trees are dropping.
