    As I said in other page, from delaware and went out earlier this week with no luck. As am fairly new to are don't have any spots or areas to search. Did try in the state park past Monday, yet haven't been out in this area since. If any other posters have luck in this area I would love to hear about it. Thanks.

    Just moved to area recently so haven't found any per say here. Would love to hear about any you find. Don't wanna be rude but you hunt public or private in delaware?
    Since never been out in this area I am limited to public land and so far no luck up here, though did find 50 blacks in Vinton last week.

    Tomorrow in Delaware my buddies parents are letting us hunt on their property.

    Other than the few people I know with private land, I am pretty limited to public as well.

    I am sooo jealous. I only wish I also had some private ares to hunt in this region. Thinkin maybe just not here yet, probably put 12-15 hrs in last couple weeks in this area and nada. Have heard some people say don't see to many blacks or greys in this area, just yellows and might be to soon. I hunted on private land in Vinton and ironically owner was originally from delaware and he said that he only ever found yellows up this way, and he lived in this area for 20 plus years. Wish you luck tomorrow.

    Delaware St park from what I understand used to produce great numbers of shrooms in the 80's and 90's and has since tapered off. You can still find them but just not huge hauls. Last year I bumped into an older fella that has hunted there for 40 years and thats what he told me. I did pick maybe 5 and thats all he had also.

    yep its hunted hard tho Think of it has a race to get to the spot at the right time.. truthfully its a race nowadays.

    But keep lookng and scoping out good ground now,, so you dont waste time when the gun goes off.

    Wow now I feel like I might be wastin my time. Though I figure alum creek the same way. I hate movin to new area with no hunting grounds of my own. I know a cardinal sin but any other public areas in this area that are worthwhile?

    If I was going to the park, I would drive back to the station/parking lot before the campgrounds and hoof it as far north as I could. And I mean hoof it because you have to park there before you can go any further.

    @dsroomer,, you asked.,,,,,,,,,:"but any other public areas in this area that are worthwhile? "
    No, Here in this area somebody already knows the spot. You got to be first, or take seconds or thirds.

    But if your daring and in need,, check out high banks metro park along 23, use to be an apple orchard there at the corner of powell and 23. Rangers will frown upon it,,, very much so. You can look but no touchy. But wait 2 weeks. Check the regulations,,, and you have to beat the Rangers to em.

    Its unlawfull, ,,,,you may pay,,, dont do it... Just look
