    That 13 point buck is probably eating all your mushrooms dude!

    They are hungry this year because it was such a harsh winter!

    Today’s pickings. The larger one have been in the spot for awhile, the smaller ones are new and there are some babies poking thru. Happy it rained!

    The easy answer is to keep doing what you are doing and take up Golf. you will save a ton on golf balls..keep your eyes peeled for a glove and a 9 iron...:p:p

    i found 6 big ones this morning under ash trees. they was almost at the stage of being to old. I got em just in time, on top of that I only had a hour to hunt I'm definatly going back.. oh yea my trip to Harlan was a bust people had already been through every where we looked. but lots of other people were finding shit loads just not us.

    Found this huge yellow in Oldham county today and two small grays. We were on the four wheeler going to the spot to check the babies I've marked and in the middle of a field between a cedar and a walnut I spotted this big one, I yelled Whoa! Back up! This season is so strange, we've spent many hours checking our normal spots and nothing but three tiny babies and then this. Needless to say the hunt was on which I did find the two grays by themselves under cedars. Hopefully there's still hope.

I hunted this spot last Monday and didn’t find any that day. What a difference a week makes! Picked 26 1-4 inch yellows and several were farther along than I expected. This was in the Louisville metro area all near ash and elm trees in a creek bottom.

    Just barely, they are blondes and growing slowly. One looks like it's a goner. I'll try to take pictures tomorrow. That big one sure surprised me though.

    Thank you for your service! I was active duty Air Force, part of the 71st Rescue Squadron from 2001-2009. I loved my time and miss it dearly! Sadly in 2009, Obama decided our military was too large and there was no longer a place for a bunch of us... Best of times, worst of times lol. The Lord had/has other plans for me I guess. I would gladly serve again though... Too bad we get too old lol

The son says, "Pi R squared." The father yells, "Why son, they ain't teached ya nothin'! Pies are round, cornbread are square."

    Found a couple in Northern KY (Crittenden) on Sunday. Unfortunately found them as I was rolling over them with the lawnmower. As you can see from the pic the lawnmower won. Going to go out tomorrow evening. Hoping the rain will make them pop. IMG_1636.JPG
