    I'm straight east of you, just south of 80, in LaSalle County. I've been working 12s but finally have time off next week so I'll start scouting my spots. All the guys I know haven't found any up here yet but your pics of the mayapples popping is a good sign as well as the pheasant's back shroom. With the reports downstate it looks like we'll be seeing at least greys within a week or week and a half.

    They are close. There have been finds in Carroll and ogle counties this week. Seems like we're getting enough moisture, just need a little more heat.

    Im in the qc,hit a few spots seems wet enough. Seems like we just need more warm weather the mayapples are popping up but they aren't as thick as they are when the morels usually pop. not a lot of coverage from the canopy either. temps are staying where they need to they should be popping up in minute. i havent seen a lot of fungi besides moss.

    Admire your desire, but patience is a virtue. Conserve your energy for about 72 hours. To quote Pearl Buck in The Good Earth, "The oxen moves slowly but the earth is patient."

    We are on the very edge. Scott and Clinton Co. area will have a decent start by next midweek. If you can't wait, head to Muscatine or Louisa areas hit by 2014-15 windstorms.

    Hit it hard, and GL tool.

    Been to rock island county a few different spots, have not found any. Also looked around henry county a little bit didn't find anything there either. I don't know if it's my bad luck or not enough heat.

    Wow nice still, near or under any certain trees or completely random one? Checked blackhawk state park but only had time to check about 5 acres of it, nothing.
