    Nice haul jkeeney20, can't beat that. Next time you could always dry out the extras and save them for the times of the year when there are none. however it's always nice to share one's harvest. Good job.
     
  5. Nice hunting, thats a sweet pic with your boy finding shrooms. Cant wait to get my little boy out hunting witth me! Those are some nice blacks, good size, hopefully it shows how this season is going to be. Monster golds fir all!!!!

    chadwimc, is that primarily oak and beech i see in those pics? mainly in the third pic. looks like a lot of oak leaves in the first pic. did it seem like they were relating to any particular type of tree?
     
  8. the greys and yellows are starting to just come up, found a few of them in the mix but they were real small.

    HARDWATERFAN.....found almost all of mine around elm and popular trees.

    Monday, my son and I found 24 greys near Springfield. No big ones, but they taste good. All 24 were in a three foot diameter, at the edge of the woods. Hunted the woods two hours, and found nothing, go figure. Hoping for a little rain so the big ones will pop-up in my favorite areas.

  16. I went out yesterday and found more ticks than mushrooms. Ended up with 4 different ticks on me. Not one shroom.

    I hate ticks, the little bastards.
     
  18. Went out yesterday, my first time this year. Didnt count them but I figure about 50-60 with some fist sized ones mixed in, guessing about 4-5 lbs, all under 1 elm tree. Sorry that I dont have a camera guys or I would post a pic. This was in western PA. Heading out this morning.
