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!!!
