I do not see hemlocks in my areas. I find lobsters where I find lactarius mushrooms. I believe these are the mushrooms that are invaded by the paracite. They are usually in small areas of the woods that have shagbark hickory with little ground cover. I only know of a few spots but they come back every year around August. Good luck finding them, they are delicious!Do you have advice for searching for lobsters? I've always read hemlocks are the key, is that so in your case?
