Why are acorns significant when deer hunting?

What is the connection between acorns and deer?


Answer by  case (1261)

Acorns are one of the deers favorite foods. When the acorns fall off the oak trees the deer start forging the forest floor for acorns to eat. The falling of the acorns causes the deer to be more active which in turn makes it easier to hunt them.
