About October Drop Chestnuts:
The hybrid Chestnut has become known as the #1 food for big bucks. Hybrid Chestnuts, similar to the Dunstan Chestnuts, provide the nutrients the deer need to become trophies. The Chestnut Trees produce a sweet nut the deer can not pass up. You can bet the deer herd will be back time and time again where ever you plant a Hybrid Chestnut Tree.
These specific genetics are perfect to create a late dropping food source in the heart of most hunting seasons! They start dropping around October 15th – Early December. This also allows you to decide WHEN AND WHERE the wildlife eat!
