    so nice of you......will post the coordinates and have a race !

    my spots have code names. "Alpine" has been a producer of hundreds per year for the last decade or so. Oddly enough I grew up near this spot and played in that small woods as a kid. probably stomped them when I was young and naive.

    RobinHood is another spot that has produced, but is slim pickens last few years. But "Hangar" is my top spot and produces many pounds per year.

    good luck with the coordinates :D

    Nope.
    Just hope the frost comes out so spring rains can soak in.

    Had to do a double take, originally thought picture was of what's in jar. Thought mine never look like that?

    I'd love to be in the woods early to find that fresh dead elm that's tucked away in a valley that's difficult to get to. But a mere 500 miles separates me from doing that. I know the areas I hunt pretty well and GPS allows me to go in without much worry of finding my way back to the car. I have those spots that really produced years ago as way points, but I've found that the dead elms come and go so I spend my first day finding the line and then go to the topo maps for like sides of hills and elevation. I find and hunt completely new areas every years and now have several old spots that I haven't visited in two or three years. I still enjoy road hunting elms, even when season is long gone.

    Road hunting elms can be dangerous to your health! I road hunt year round as well for trees (standing, fallen, logged), hunting spots, berry patches, creeks, shrooms and more; many close calls that say I need to be payin' attention to the road. :eek: Actually thinkin' of using some modern technology this year to mark spots/GPS rather than my notebook! o_O Better to find the exact spot rather than general location . . .

    Road hunting can cause traffic slow downs too, somebody up ahead in this picture must be gauking @ a dead Elm!
