White oak acorns are not just good deer attractants, they are good to eat by us humans also. If the mast is heavy gather up a bucket of sound WHITE OAK acorns, the others require a lot of effort to leech out the bitterness but white oak acorns are naturally sweet. Toasted in or out of the shell they are rich and tasty. A good snack or side dish with squirrel or venison. This post is is in memory of Cherokee educator Diamond Brown who, I learned, passed away this past February.
