I have been watching videos on youtube freshening up on tree bark identification. I have all my locations written down. Signs of when to hit the woods, and a lot of motivation!!! Just need a good spring time warm up. Good luck to all.
@ river rat 70, Great idea there. I've posted three videos on dead elm tree identification: How to Identify Dead Elms, Go for the Gold - 14 Lbs., and Good Job, God - 9 Lbs. All under the handle "creatorwise" Be sure and check them out. There are lots of great videos there. I like this Neralich guy from Missouri's videos. He slaughtered them last year.
I heard some were found just S/W of Indy..,not too much longer for NW Indiana 3-7 days if the warm air holds and we get some rain...I hear its suppose to get a l'ill chilly the first part of next week however
Looking forward to hitting the woods, but will have to delay a bit due to the imminent arrival of a new granddaughter expected sometime this evening. I expect it will still be a couple of days before they pop up in the Indy regions, however, especially since they are forecasting snow in the next few days.
Was in McCormick Creek State Park outside of Bloomington today. Didn't find anything. The conditions are very close. A few more days I think they will be popping in Southern Indiana. Lets hope the frost doesn't hurt them.
I hear ya, not sure where u r located but they are yet to pop up here in northern IN I'm hoping that the relatively warm soil temps and last years leaf liter will keep 'em healthy and protected until things warm up again wed.
I hear ticks are already terrible this year!! ugh!!! its so wet hear, i am hoping these 60-70 degree dry days help dry some of the water up soon or we may not have a great year! Im in Elkhart county. Nappanee area. Just moved here a year ago from syracuse indiana area, love it here,,,just have to find a place to hunt now! I learned from an old timer last year, that they grow around white sycamores too! had no idea, but found a few of the biggest Yellows ive ever seen. Happy hunting, and pls post when you start seein em pop!!!
Same here Fanger. Soil is looking pretty darn dry, I hope the rain forecasted for next week doesn't balk. Yo shroon, what u finding blacks around? Been checkin poplars on south facing hills all over Marion Co and not jack all week.
