I am seeing tons or beechnuts in the Tupper area but thus far, am not seeing evidence that the deer are feeding on them. Pretty surprising to me. Maybe there's something else that they're focusing on at present. Seeing does but no bucks yet but the rut is coming. Seeing scrape lines now so it shouldn't be long. Good luck everyone.

I've seen a couple of small bucks on the cam and adolescent bucks sparing with each other. Oak nuts are plentiful and the apples are picked clean in an area I hunt. Some Beach nuts are down. No scrapes, and very small rubs. Freezer empty.

Found a good scrape line today on a logging road. About 10 or 11 scrapes in a couple hundred yards. I put up a trail cam to see what I get.

I also have found some nice scrapes on a ridge. Seen a nice 8 or 10 point in the same week. Once driving in early to my haunt I saw him in the middle of the road and Sunday he came up behind me 40 yards while on a watch. I was watching a scrape line and he crept up behind me, my guard was down and by the time the rifle was to my shoulder he was on his way out.

Heavy beechnut crop in the Southwest ADK’s. Beechnuts everywhere on the ground, but have not seen much evidence of deer eating them. I have seen large flocks of black birds feeding on them.

I would guess 170 lbs dressed, eating acorns and 4 1/2 rough guess for age.

Thanks. That's always good info people ignore or forget to check. If one ever goes to a weigh station the biologist there will tell you much.
