I’m absolutely LOADED with them this year. Last weekend while checking cards I saw at least 10 large mature trees loaded with them. I know I have at least 25-30 persimmon trees on my small 100 acres so I’m not expecting much feeder activity till after th middle of October

Have a few trees that are loaded

But they are right up by the house

Everything seems to love them, coyotes, coons, and I am sure hogs eat them too

No doubt. My challenge is they seem to like to grow in areas where there are no decent larger trees to set up a climber . I tend to hunt the general areas of my persimmons in the first couple weeks bow season, But I have noted that they are usually all gone by the middle of October or so.

Our lease outside Fredericksburg is covered with persimmon bushes, and they are loaded with fruit. Some of the fruit was ripe a month ago, some ripe last weekend, and still more green ones on the bushes. We'll have ripe persimmons for a while yet. Not bad to eat either, but you have to reach up higher than a deer's reach to get a good ripe one.

It’s crazy... I have some Persimmons that are tiny “Trees” more like bushes that are producing fruit!

Good idea... I am just not a pop up guy. The persimmons seem to be gone by mid October and itís always so godforsaken hot and one of those pop-ups during early October. I hunt from a climber not too terribly far from a big grove.

We have owned our place for 12 years. Up until this year the hogs were relatively light and virtually nonexistent for the first nine years . For whatever reason thatís not the case anymore and I certainly am going to get to see persimmon catching hogs this fall ! Man, where did they come from!!!

I eat a hand full a day when I'm there and they are ripe.

But, In 29 years hunting my lease I have seen probably a thousand deer walk right past them and never seen one eat one.

Sure you are not eating horse apples? Lol. funny you should say that although everybody says this is where to hunt, last year I hung my camera over a ripe persimmon tree and got several pictures of a coyote and that was it .

We have one on our lease that usually does pretty good. As soon as they get ripe, the ones the deer can reach from the ground are gone.
