    Does anybody know if deer eat green acorns?

    It has been windy here for the last few days and have a bunch load that fell out of the trees.

    I was just wondering if they would eat them, or if they would just rot on the ground... :noidea:

    Well my season started today for doe only... I didn't get a chance to get out, but I am trying to figure out if I should change my spot I had picked and gamble on them changing their paths to start feeding on the green acorns.

    Corn!

    The problem is if you have a better food sorce near by like a corn field or even a residents area bird seed, small gardens with tomato vines beans etc.
    They seem to turn to acorns last unless there in a remote area!
    If you havent had to much ran lately focas on water and where there crossing!
    My week starts oct Im going to get between thick cover and a wide shallow creek that they always come to that has giant white oaks that drop Acorns in the water!

    They'll gobble them up, and put that spot on thier routine rounds after a few visits. They are getting tired of the greenery, and like the change in diet. Acorns are high energy food, and the White oaks are sweeter for them. Less tannin or something.
