    Mushrooms people! Mushrooms!! I come on here to talk about mushrooms. Please take the politics else where.

    Anhwho, I found my 1st of the season up here in Wisconsin today and by 10:00 p.m. will have invaded the middle of your state ready to wake up at 5:00 a.m. to hit the woods.

    Good luck to all.

    Why thank you, my friend. You make my point very clear. You represent your area well. Keep the faith you ignorant piece of sh*t.

    I was in the woods for about an hour.
    May apples are up, but no carpenter bees were flying.
    We are on the cusp, but no stogie thus far.
    They are calling for snow Saturday night. Hopefully light...

    And thank you sir, I do represent my area well... and it carries yours. You're welcome! I hope you have the opportunity to insult me to my face sometime. I doubt you make a habit of showing that type of fortitude.

    Agreed, this thread is about mushroom hunting. Let's stay focused on the subject, please.

    Found 5 yellow's yesterday in Springfield where I found the grey's last weekend and earlier this week. Hoping the sun tomorrow helps them pop.

    I would say that is still a big grey, looks identical to the ones I posted from Wed. Evening.

    Total for day 1 wasn't the best but wasn't the worst. We found more numbers and size near effingham than we did tuscola. Few by sycamores (only 1 at a crack), rest by elms.

    Went to Site M yesterday, left after an hour as size was not worthy of an all day outing. Will be out there starting Thursday, not enough early season spots

    Leaving them on public ground is so hard but just babies so I cover them with some leaves fingers crossed

    Wrapped my illinois endeavor with 80. Buddy got a handful less. Drastic improvement over last years down south rendevous.

    First time finding under sycamore and also first time for maple. The tiny ones in the top row were surrounding a giant maple.

    Mr. Fan - Looks like that frog had an eye on dinner.

    This rain is a beautiful thing.

    They should pop here in southern Kane this week. Start looking when the rain stops.
