    Tomorrow, Monday, should be a great day after all this rain. If anyone wants to meet up and go for hunt send me a message.

    So today I put on the rain gear and headed out. It was pretty much Merkel pickin with not much hunting. You don't get many days like that.

    Awesome finds, Barndog. I'm not having as much luck as you, but consistently getting a dozen or so each day for the past week before I run out of day light. This whole job thing is messing up my mushroom hunting. I'm heading out now in the rain myself.

    This weekend? Have a wife that's never tried one, and a son that's never found one. Too far from home where my spots are, and can't seem to find one here (williamsburg). Already put in about 100-120 miles worth of looking

    Williamsburg is probably done. I am west of you in Powhatan and I haven't found any new shrooms since 4/12. I'm thinking of taking one trip west for one last find. Anybody know if Nelson/Amherst counties are producing

    I went yesterday and only found a few. I think the season is coming to a end in my area. I would look in the highest elevation possible. The few I found were 1/3 way up the mountain and as I worked my way down the mountain I found less and less till I was at the creek level and found none where I generally find them. Nothing good lasts forever......

    Well, I've found 100+ over the last few days. Found exactly 50 yesterday. I found a huge 8in tall yellow that had been up for a while and then in the same area, find brand new ones just popping up...weird. I did find a few reaching the end of the life cycle though, so it may be winding down in my area too. But who knows...possible rain this evening and warm temps might stretch things out a while longer.

    I still haven't left my main spots to search at higher elevations. A friend of mine did and had some success earlier this week. Hoping to get up there this weekend.

    That sounds great. I hope they keep going thru this coming week.

    Let's see some pics!
