    That’s an awesome find can you describe the area you found in such as the trees near water bottom land etc. Finds like that make me want to stay in the woods 24/7

    I’m in Hart this morning checking my patches that grow the smaller greys and yellows and I guess they are a bust here this year. I have only found 1 in these patches this year so far. Guessing they may have froze just as they were getting ready to fruit.

    I'm wishing everyone good luck this beautiful day, unfortunately my back went out Wednesday evening and I can barely walk so no woods for me. Hopefully what's out there will still be okay when I'm able to get back out. Good luck shroomin folks!

    Anyone ever hunted in Mammoth Cave? If so is it a good area to look for shrooms? I know you can they have rules just didn't know if it was worth the drive

    Howdy Fam,

    I went out this week in a few different areas around Jefferson County. South of town, in town, west of town. Not a single bit of luck. I checked near creek bottoms and above them as well hillsides away from creek bottoms. I see lilacs blooming and may apples everywhere. Ive been around Ash and tons of Tulip poplar. No luck. Is it just a terrible season? Still too early? Is jefferson county bad for shroomin?

    Thanks all,

    Well, your assessment was accurate. We found 2, big, fresh whites 1st day out in Bath Co and that's it. Finding those made us think "this is it", but 3 days covering ground that yielded over 300 last year produced nadda

    I typically do really well in Jefferson picking spots that have been productive the past 10-12 years except this year is really down. The big yellows are probably going to be all but finished in Jefferson in the next week or so. I ended up finding 4 yellows in Hart today, 2 that were starting to turn a little brown.

    Picking can be good in the Park during good seasons. I hunted my farm today that is 1 mile outside the Park boundary and found 3 big yellows in a creek bottom and 1 small yellow on a ridge that in a good year may produce 100 of the small yellow and greys. That was the 1st one found on that particular ridge. Great day to be out in the woods.
