    Hey Texans! it's February and right about now is when the fever starts to get to me. I hope the cold winter and moist fall give us a good season this year we deserve it after two bad years in a row. Who else is gettin ready?

    This will be my first season in south Texas. Been in Ohio for the past 17 years, so I'm looking forward to the new challenge. I was out walking the dog yesterday, and realized that it was starting to feel like mushroom season. Just not used to it happening so early.

    Been packing my mushroom hunting gear and mapping out new spots to hit in the DFW area starting at the end of February which is about 1 week earlier than normal for me.

    Would anyone be interested in a gear thread? Show pics of your mushroom hunting essentials?

    All right fellow foragers. North Texas hunter relocated to San Antonio 3 years ago and getting the itch. I’ve only had 1 really successful season down south but I know the spots in Collin Grayson and Cook county. If your a northern hunter with viable hill country spots let’s do some info swapping to help us both. Hit me up. If you don’t have any southern info I’m still game to trek the woods up north when I make the journey so I’ll let you know when I’m taking the 35 north trek and I’m always willing to share info but bring your spots as well. Good luck to everyone this year!!!!
