Will they tolerate/grow in a flood zone? Found an area along the Potomac full of elm/sycamores/poplar but it floods a few times a year.
Hey Rick. Some say they will not appear for couple years after flooding. Others have picked in floodzones during and the year after said flood. While flooding is a disturbance and does knock down many trees. The main concern however, is contaimnants. Floodwaters are Nasty stuff. You dont wanna go eating mushrooms exposed to floodwaters & risk illness. Most of the time it takes 100 days for the soil in floodzones to reach pre-flooded bacterial levels. I would recommend exercising some caution, but if certain areas of this new found spot are higher elevation or just outside waters reach, go ahead & hunt.

Got out yesterday for a couple hours. Found 1 small back that appears to be about a day old. Still seems a bit early here in Northern Virginia from what I've seen in the woods. The one I found was at the base of a large old Popular Tree and amongst a couple Beech trees.

Way to go kevin.

Looks like another cold night here in Giles. Only found a handful today. I could tell some other hunters had been out. You could see the stubs left behind.

So I'm pretty new to hunting, going on 4th year now. I've looked at this forum a lot to find out when they're out and about and learned a lot of little tips. I was hooked after finding 13 my second year and then only a handful last year.... my luck has changed!!! Found over 100 in Montgomery County

Finding some decent grays in Mont. Co. I found the first one 4/10..the earliest I've ever found one. Have seen more come up each day since. Even after a low of 31 at my house last night, the ones already up didn't seem to mind the cold. I think things are shaping up for a good season, I'm going to be hitting it hard the next couple weeks!

That looks awesome Randee. Next time put a dollar bill, lighter or drink can in for scale. Nice find. How many were around it?
