Several hunters are saying that 2010 was a strange or unusual hunting season statewide. We had an abundance of acorns and hickory nuts last year. Yet nimrods are telling me with all this mast there was very little game. This could be quite true. I remember the squirrel hunting season in Roane County in 1957 when there was acorns and hickory everywhere, but very few squirrels. Well now, the answer to this situation is plain and simple. The year before there was very little mast in that county.
