    Started finding Hens last week in NE IN. have found a dozen so far. Looks like it's gonna be a good year. Funny thing, it's been drier than a popcorn fart, but the young hens are dripping with water. They must pull the water from the trees?

    Yes, the Hens are parasites on the trees, so I would have to guess that the trees are still pulling plenty of water.

    I went scouting in west central Ohio mid week and the only thing I found was three Lions Mane, They were about softball size, two were old one was prime. It still has not rain in a couple weeks in my area. Hens can come out in dry conditions.

    Checked a couple of Hen spots today and there is absolutely nothing happening in my neck of the woods! I think it's just been too dry lately. Year started out too wet, and it's winding up too dry!

    The deer season is nearly here, but climbing and sitting in a stand when it's 90 degrees will be a chore. I like the heat, but it's time for it to go.

    I like the heat when I'm swimming or playing golf. When I'm hunting I certainly do NOT! Which is why I won't be going out Saturday for the opener. I look at it the same way I do the trout opener next door in PA. I wish everyone a good time catching lots of fish and dealing with the mob. I'll wait a while and start fishing when the crowds have disappeared and there are still plenty of trout to be caught. The trout opener at my fish & game club, and at every local body of water the holds trout, is pure bedlam!

    I'll wait until this weather cools down some. I don't know how those good old boys down South do it! well, I do have some idea. You better make a good shot and find that deer pronto. Get it gutted and have an ATV to get that deer out of woods and to a running cooler or meat locker fast! I would not risk putting an arrow through a deer if thought there was a chance it would go to waste.

    Heading to Dugger to fish a 20 acre pit that hasn't been fished in years. Going to pull the motor off my boat and see if we can't lift the boat off the trailer into the water, and get some fish in the basket.

    Yep! You got it wired tight! I don't have an ATV, so it's dragging it out for me. My BIL is one of the most die hard deer hunters I know. Here in NE Ohio there is an area called the Mosquito Creek Wildlife Area. Most of it is off limits being a migratory waterfowl sanctuary, but some years ago they opened up a portion of it to hunters. My BIL's house is not far from there, so he started hunting it. He said there were Boone & Crockett bucks galore, but being a state deal, you can't take motorized vehicles back in there. He shot a deer in there and it about killed him getting it out! Took him almost 7 hours! He doesn't hunt there any more!

    I hope Robin Bluebird realized that there was a man setting in a chair before she bush hogged the area.

    Thank you for the info. I have not been able to get out yet, I work a seven day week then a five day week.
    I will head to my go to tree for hens. I harvested 10# off of that one tree last year. Good luck my friend.

    I think this is ringless honey mushroom. Can anyone confirm? 20190929_183623.jpg 20190929_183642.jpg There are clusters all over my neighborhood. Mostly around oaks
