    Went out yesterday and checked a couple spots, nothing yet. Kinda might be a good thing since we are about to get a hard freeze again. I just hope we dont go straight from Winter to Summer this year.

    I know there was a guy yesterday in Lexington NE found a few earlys along the platte yesterday or day before..think that area has been just missing a lot of the colder temps dipping down into the Missouri river valley lately..lot of sand out that way and ground temp pic he posted was at 50 something . The wife and I were looking at heading down to nw Missouri possibly next weekend

    Those Okies are finding them in the snow. I've found them like that a few yrs back but it was late April/early May. I do recall I was wearing my snowpants and my winter coat...lol. I still found a couple dozen that day.
    I think I'll check a few of my warmer spots by the Kaw.

    Any place you can find near the rivers. The might MO or the Kaw, I'd think you should be able to find them somewhat easily.

    Yeah, like she says, the Kaw and MO rivers around here are good. Lots of good wooded areas to cover. I like finding smaller waterway near the big rivers. If you get down this way (Lawence, KS) we have the Wakarusa river ( Pretty much a creek) south of town. Always find new patches almost anywhere I look along there.

    Good luck! A friend just found a few greys apparently moments ago. Upper 70s for the next couple days ought to pop them up pretty good too

    Thanks LFK! We looked yesterday without luck. Today's nice temps should do the trick. If we could get another shower, that would be even better.
    BTW.... I too am an LFK'r

    Sadly no. Looking at vegetation it may be some time next week if we're lucky.

    Not me either, havent been in full on hunt mode yet, but have checked a few spots. 2 of my friends have found several small grays and 1 little yellow. Red Buds opened up today, hopefully we get some of the rain moving through

    I just went out today around Lawrence. I've got an Ol' Faithful tree that tends to produce some early season greys. Never in large number but at least I know when they're coming up. I found about 8 very small to medium greys, and the small ones were pretty old. Other spots yielded nothing.

    We're still in the early season- the forest isn't showing a lot of activity yet. I didn't see any poison ivy at all and undergrowth was minimal. I hope that this isn't going to be like the last several years, where we see a weak early season followed up by a week or more of inhospitable conditions, and then a short late season. We've been having a lot of weeks in the past few years where the temperature was right, or there was plenty of rain, but rarely both at the same time. There are probably a good two weeks or so left in the season, I'd guess. I'm curious to hear what the rest of you think!

    Hey, yeah i hear ya .Its nerve racking . I have thought things were shaping up for a good season, and then the last cold snap gave me some doubts .BUT, I'm back to feeling pretty hopeful as long as we get some rain fairly soon .You are probably right about the 2 weeks, I feel like maybe 2 to 2 1/2 .But hell..who knows? My friends are finding a few here and there, mostly little grays, some fresh some probably frost bit and dry .
    I'm headed out now to check some spots, I will let you know .Good luck!
