Me and Jaybo checked some early spots today in DuPage/Cook county. We are still a week away. The ground is perfect and its gonna be anyday now. Some rain and warm temps comin in starting sunday into next week should get things moving along.

Thats surprising? Dandy's just popped open yesterday around here. Day before there was no yellow to be seen, now the lawns are full of yellow. I saw a lot of mayapples today that were 6 + inches already. I'm hoping by wednesday I find my first baby. I'm in Will county, but hunt mainly in DuPage/Cook.

I dont waste my time on half frees. I see a ton of them every spring, but its mostly a big stem your picking. I've heard they're pretty good, but I prefer the big yellows and greys. I have my fingers crossed that I will find my first little patch by wednesday. The quality though is still a week or so away. Next weekend maybe.... Please don't litter

Any of you Will County shroomers do any good along the DesPlaines River in and around the forest preserves? My neighbor brought me to a spot last year and there were a ton of huge dead Elms, but it was so friggin dry, that it was a lost cause.
