Thread: Bumper acorn crop on the way

    Bumper acorn crop on the way

    I thought it was just in our area but having been in Yorkshire and Devon over the last week or so there seem to be a potentially huge crop of acorns and also the beech mast appears good. Will make for some good pigeon/squirrel shooting and the rape shooters will be complaining about the lack of pigeon, cause they will be in the woods.

    Also I expect some of our pheasant shooters/keepers may have their work cut out preventing birds straying.

    Am I correct in thinking Fallow are fond of acorns?

    Wild boar love them too will make it a bit harder to feed them out of the woods for shooting, but is this a sign of a bad winter to come?

    Well if a little later in the year, when the undergrowth dies back a bit, you need any help saving the acorns, please feel free to let me know! I wonder if a diet of acorns has the same effect on venison as it does on pork? Essentially, are acorn-fed munties fattier and tastier? Only one way to find out!
