    I tried in Colorado, but they always seemed to lack the moisture, or it could have been I didn't have a clue. You choose. Larry the tree has some you tube video where he talks about finding 250lbs a day out west. Chris Matherly also has a video where they get into a nice patch. Going out there is in my bucket list, after I find the mother load in MN.

    The burn site I hunted was not a fresh one so no finds.

    The only state ground is the state park, otherwise it was on national park property and big no-no! There is no connection between burn sites in the Midwest, we don’t have the greenies or burn site morels. Any that you found after the burn, most likely would have been there anyways. Or maybe you found a new species, got any pics?

    Sorry it has been several years ago. The odd part is we have searched the area before in different years and never found anything and they burn very early in the spring and they where pretty easy to find with everything burnt black. Never find them in the same place after that.

    One month from today is my average first find date from the last ten years, I’m hoping it’s sooner this year because I’m getting the itcho_O edit: that’s in Northwest Indiana

    Where you at Tool fan? Third or fourth week of April. GB,s stats are spot on. Watch posts down south, season moves about 100 miles a week. I was watching a video that was two days old today out of Waco TX. Red buds were in full bloom. Big season indicator they are.

    I hear you. My average first find date in KY the past 6 years has been 3/24 and I know a guy that found his 1st of the season last Friday in southern KY and found a few more today. But Old Man Winter sure is hanging on unfortunately.
