Looking forward to the upcoming season and getting to hunt with some of ya’ll. Hope everyone had a good holiday season with good fortunes ahead! Here’s some throwback pics, enjoy! Best part of last year hunting for me was getting my 3 year old out hunting for first time and she found 10-12 on her own at 3. We went out 2 times and I couldn’t of been more proud and can’t wait to get her back out this year she loves it and loves eating them! Baby doll in one hand and giant morel she found in the other she’s ready lol View attachment 41099
Those are Beautiful Pictures of her, That Pizza looks Good

I know this. I won't screw up like I did last year by waiting too long! If anything I want to be a little early. When they start finding them just north of Columbus, it's time to get out there. Plus, I'm getting my peepers fixed (cataracts) so that should help! And even though I was late, I still found a kind of "new" spot. Not totally new, but another part of an area that I was already hunting. The fish & game club cut some new trails off the main trail I walked in on. I had read in Michael Kuo's book that disturbance or grading of the ground could bring on a flush, so I checked them out. Even though I found some "crispy critters", those new trails kind of saved my season.
Howdy @shroomsearcher and Everyone
2 yrs ago there was a Tree Crew dropping big trees that were Deamed a threat to the power lines that Run through Woods I Hunt..Now We find Morels around and near the cut off tree stumps that have been left to rot.πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„

So..about 6 years ago, Before I figured out what Chewy was doing...
He'd be laying there Near by and waiting for Me to get done looking around, and I would say let's go, and he would just look at me.. Chewy let's go, Come on!
Seeming Reluctant, he would finally get up and move along Near by me.. and soon would stop and sit down again.. waiting for me to look around, Then get him up and going again.
Well One day he just looked at me like I'm not coming, So I'm like, what are you doing Man come on!
I try to imagine what he felt, when after many many times and Years of walking away... I finally walked Over to him, and say what are you doin Man,
He then turned his head slightly and looked Over, at a Morel...
Chewy Must have Caught on the first time I took him in the woods.. I Had Never shown him, or even had it cross my mind that he might find Morels..
But it Makes since to me now.. Chewy Easily figured out what we were doing and He wanted to Help...
Every since that Moment.. that He finally got me to listen to him, and showed me a Morel..
Now I try to Listen to him about Everything, and I definitely check in with him when he is sitting down looking at Me

That Spring Water is good as Gold... I hope someday that I can buy a property with a spring . I looked at a 35 acre property with a huge Original cabin from the 1700's which was used as a Civil War hospital and Trading Post..
The spring at the bottom of the hill just 150'feet below the Cabin.. I estimated was flowing at Easily more than 20-gallons per minute
Very interestingly located Exactly πŸ’― 100- miles from Indianapolis and Louisville and Cincinnati and Evansville

I think I have only fished one time since 1984
I did fish growing up...
I gave up my Hunting Trapping and Fishing, to focus more time on working to make money.
Thinking I would be able to Retire Young and buy Hundreds of Acres to share with friends and finish out my life, out there Hunting again.
Now .. I still wish /plan for a way to buy Hundreds of Acres.. but I think I just want to Hunt Fungi now.πŸ€ β€πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ¦…πŸ•πŸŒŽπŸ„πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„

I hope not. The one we got Sunday night was enough to last me till Summer! Thank God the next door neighbor lady found us a guy to plow our driveways out. If she hadn't I'd still be shoveling! Took me long enough to just dig the truck out!
What.. I didn't know there was any accumulated in Indiana...
But Man .. I still like a Great Big Beautiful Blizard

@wade well it's the 24th of January n we are finally getting are first snow least in this area of Indiana. Definitely can tell it's the first one to, people are just driving dumb to put it politely lol.
As far as sledding you definitely have some good hills for it, so walk on to the top of that hill where the park is n go down that one, believe it be a good one.
I know it ..all the Young people sled there every year.. but Robin and I have never sled there..
I do want to do it someday..maybe this year
