No acorns in this country, only Mesquite. Corn prices at the local feed store, 50lbs - $9.00.
We bought cob for $7/bag at the beginning of the year. Right now a 50lb bag of shell is running $12-$15 depending on where you go.
I doubt I could let those horns walk. Been a while since I saw a decent rack in daylight around here. Plenty of sookies to shoot though. Got a double last night.
