Live oak trees

Does anyone know when you can start to see acorns forming on live oak trees in N/W or North Florida? I have a few isolated Live oaks were I hunt but they rarely produce acorns, like maybe one year out of 6 years. They are varying sizes, and are mature because they do occasionally have a good year. Surprisingly they still attract deer and there will be scrapes and rubs all around them in the rut even when they don't produce. Seems like I spend a lot of time checking them

    They should be forming now but will be small. Some live oaks can start dropping in September, but others may not until November. Your right most will produce a good crop every 3 to 4 years. So if you just have a few trees you may not have any some years.

    They should have small acorns already. Two years ago we had a monstrous acorn crop. I'm talking fresh acorns dropping a month early and running as long as 4 months later than usual. I saw 6 months of fresh live oaks in some places. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a little light this year.
