    I would think with the apple orchard across the street, the crab apple and pear tree out back, the black walnuts out back AND all these HUGE acorns on my property that I'd see more deer.... But I've only seen 6 since living here and they were a mile down the road.

    Anyone else got these monster sized acorns? I've never seen them this big.

    Wow, they really are something.

    Sounds like you live in Paradise.

    Doesn't this mean there will be a really COLD winter? [​IMG]

    Those acorns are huge, right?! I've been in the woods my whole life, but I've never seen any that big.

    Not uncommon where I grew up in Eastern KS. Those I believe are from a Black Oak. The Acorns from the Burr Oak are larger, about golf ball size.

  7. Are they all like that?!
    Would you send me some if I sent you the postage and a padded envelope?!
    I want them for the family altar table.
    PM if interested.
