Naturally produced by God—Hand selected by Adam Andrews.
My name is Adam Andrews, the Founder and CEO of Adam’s Acorns. I am fourteen-years old. My mom and dad are Polly and Andy Andrews. Together with my older brother Austin, we live in Orange Beach, Alabama.
As long as I can remember, I’ve been happier outdoors than anywhere else. It must be a generational thing—from my grandparents to my parents—now to my brother and me. Fishing, hunting, or simply being still in the woods watching wildlife and taking photos, nothing is more fun!
Your best chance to see wildlife consistently, whether for hunting or photography, is to be where the animals eat. What do they eat? Almost everything. Grasses, soybeans, and leafy browse to honeysuckle, corn, and (if they get the chance) everything in your mom’s flowerbed!
However, as you probably already know, there is one natural food that deer prefer more than any other. Just like you and I have favorite restaurants, animals have favorite places to eat as well. And topping that list is a White Oak or Sawtooth Oak tree that is dropping acorns.
Amazingly, even though the US Forest service identifies more than fifty varieties of acorn producing oaks, the favorites of deer and other mammals are almost always White Oak or Sawtooth.
Most acorns are high in tannins, which produce a bitter taste. Therefore, the lower the tannin level is in acorns, the more desirable they are to wildlife.
That means, with tannin levels at the lowest end of the scale, Adam’s Acorns—my premium White Oak/Sawtooth blend—is like candy to a big buck! Here’s where it gets really interesting…
When White Oak or Sawtooth acorns drop, it doesn’t take the deer, hogs, and other animals long to find them and vacuum them up. This makes an actual stand of White Oak or Sawtooth trees a PERFECT spot for bowhunting early fall.
Unfortunately, because these particular acorns drop fast—sometimes within 10 days—they are gobbled up quickly.
NOW…with Adam’s Acorns, you can extend the life of the location as long as you like. Simply scatter my White Oak/Sawtooth blend under and around the trees—exactly where the deer have been eating them all along!
I look forward to hear about your success. And I’d love to see some photos!
From Dr. Grant Woods, Wildlife biologist, Land-Management Consultant, GrowingDeer.com:
As Fall progresses it usually means changing deer hunting strategies to remain successful! Once acorns start falling, deer tend to change patterns and abandon all other food sources in favor of white oak acorns.
Whitetails in most areas have been eating acorns as long as there have been acorns. They obviously enjoy the taste of acorns as they often abandon soybeans, etc., as soon as acorns begin to fall.
Actually, deer will abandon almost every type of forage crop and eat acorns. Deer strongly prefer white oak over red oak acorns. White oak acorns have a lower concentration of tannic acid compared to red oak acorns. This acid makes red oak acorns taste very bitter!
If white oak acorns are available where you hunt, that’s most likely what deer will be having for dinner. If you hunt in an area that is primarily agriculture fields, finding and hunting the limited white oak trees is a relatively easy strategy.
Knowing that deer love acorns, especially white oak acorns during the early season, makes it seem easy to find a good stand location. That is the case if you hunt in an area where most of the land is row crop agriculture and acorns are only available in a limited area. Find the acorns and you’ll likely know exactly where deer are feeding!
