Whitetail Deer Eat Acorns!
Whitetails enjoy eating oak acorns. They especially enjoy acorns from the White Oak, Quercus alba Fagaceae. They also like acorns from the Live Oak, Quercus virginiana Fagaceae; the Red Oak, Quercus rubra; and the Pin Oak, Quercus palustris.
When there is an abundance of acorns in the woods, donít expect to see deer rushing to the fields to browse. In the daytime, whitetail bucks prefer to stay in the woods and eat acorns.
Thatís why they call it hunting and not killing!
