Let's go Badger Boys and Girls. Bring on your Morel discussions, pic's, etc.
I know. I think it was pre-Blackberry if you can believe that. Morels.com was different back then, but it did have forum threads for each state like they still do. Also the Wisconsin board always talked about the morels being found in northern Illinois before our season started. LOL...some things never change!2 decades? Hard to believe the internet has been around that long, lol.
On a positive note, the Illinois board is showing its first find from northern Illinois.
Out of the past four times I've been in the woods, twice I was too excited to remember to put on bug spray, and both of those times I brought home a live tick. The other two times I sprayed myself down with picaridin and did not bring home any ticks. Additionally, I eat lots of fresh garlic and have yet to have a tick bite me. Supposedly they don't like the smell of garlic coming through your pores. I don't use permethrine. For what it's worth.I permethrined my hunting clothes today. Have to remember to put the picaridin based bug repellent in the kit.
