Racheal, I to am from Blount co. And have just started getting into shroomin. I don't know a lot of places to hunt however, I am going in the morning 4/16 to look around in the towensend area. I am originally from the Sweetwater area and my son, daughter and I found about 30 yesterday in Sweetwater. They were all small except for 2 or 3 of them. Sweetwater is about 40 miles south of Blount co. I will be more than happy to share as much info. As I can however, I'm pretty new to the game and am still trying to learn the habitat and tree identification.
