    That is awesome! We found all of our big yellows and greys under dead ash trees also and all of the blacks and small yellows/greys in poplar stands. Happy to hear that you guys are finding some good ones!

    A few were, yes. But everything I left was only a couple inches tall and very fresh sprouts.

    Only had time for a quick walk today behind the house... This was a donation trip anyway. The dryads were older than I like, but the older gentleman I was hunting for 20190422_122336_HDR.jpg likes them like that lol.

    He giggled like a kid for a while. I promised him every year I do well, I'll bring him some. He's about 80 and doesn't walk well anymore. Gained a lot of knowledge from him over the years.
