    Found about 30-35 blacks this past Sat. and Sun. Sliced them in half, sauteed in butter with garlic, salt and pepper. A very tasty treat. Hoping to find more this weekend.

    @wickieRoy, I've been finding the drainage ditch blacks but these night temps have been screwy plus the humidity has been considerably less than in previous years, only time it's gotten humid is right before a big cold front sweeps thru and freezes it. I except my Sycamores to b firing once some leaf emergence develops on them but other than that, I'm finding between 3 to about 20 per time under poplars n cherries, all black besides that random cluster of whites about a week ago.

    .<span style="font-family: Verdana"> Found quite a bit yesterday in Preston County, actually lost count because we left soooooo many of them. I have never found a spot like that . . . every where we stepped we were finding them. All were about the size of my pinkie nail and I'm a petite lady. Most were grays but a few blondes were poking their head's too. We managed to pick enough for tonights dinner -- a grand slam actually of some blacks, grays, and fewer blondes. Need the rain. Without the rain . . . well, I hate to think about it!

    In Fayette County, PA today. Checked a new spot . . . same situation as above. Some keepers but mostly babies needing the rain.

    Best of luck to everyone!!</span>

    Hunted on the borders of Pendleton/Hardy Counties yesterday, but should have done a better job checking last week's weather. It was extremely dry, so I didn't find anything. So disappointing! Has anyone else found anything near here recently? Rain this week, so I hoping...
