    Nice big fresh yellow are out around here. Just picked a nice big bag full this eveing. That rain last night made them grow I think and now this cool weather around here for the next few days will keep them nice and fresh. About 4-5 pounds. Good luck all..... Please dont litter

    Yes Metal, twas a good day indeed. My final weigh-in was 3.75 lbs. in just over an hour of picking, not too shabby at all. Most were very fresh, some starting to get the trademark slug trails on the stems, but overall very nice. I'm kicking myself to think how many I could have found had I had the day off. Oh well, I'll get to hit the stumps again Sunday.

    Hey guys, I am in cook county, near orland park, and was wondering if you could give me some very general spots to start. I don't have any money and this would make my mom's mothers day. I'd trade some of my honey holes for hens, chickens, oysters, and fishing for just an idea of where to begin. I will not disclose this info to anyone, will clean up, cut the stems, and be a responsible hunter. I'd very much appreciate it. Take care, and good luck. My email is matthewrolsen@yahoo.com

    Yes, this weeks cool temps will keep them fresh. It's going to be a potential game changer mid-week, when the temps flirt with 90 for a couple of days, then more rain and cool temps.
