Default Acorn identification

I’ve hunted Dewey wills my whole life. We always called them striped oaks”hence the stripes” . I was wondering the scientific name. Are they reds or whites or what. Thanks

A pic of the acorn would help but most of what I see people referring to as striped oaks are Nuttalls.

Looks like a nuttall oak, favorite thing to target. Find one falling after primary rut over, and if there is a mature buck around or one you targeting in area he will be there.

The first pic. [brown acorn] is a nutall.

The second pic. [green acorn] looks to be a Cow Oak acorn.

Deer really like both of these acorns.

The nuttall are brown with stripes , when they are ripening in tree they or green also . Seen this after a storm , the nuttall is a very good food source ,I see them in a lot of river bottom public land , this year is a bad year for them in Indian Bayou area ,
