Should I hunt where acorns are falling?

I have have been wondering when hunting acorns, would it be better to place a stand dead in the acorns or to place the stand on the outside of the acorns.

Thanks for your time


If the preferred acorns are in a large stand of timber than I typically hunt very close to the trees where deer are feeding.  This is because it’s often difficult to find bottlenecks for stand/blind placements in such habitat.  If the acorns are in a small patch of timber, I prefer hunting a few hundred yards away so there’s no chance the deer start associating the food source with danger.

Enjoy creation,
