I only go public. Last year I was having a good day on a bad year. I came upon a path with a woman sitting on a metal bench and her boyfriend poking around. I spent five minutes giving him the basics and his girlfriend said let's go. They walked off and I walked on. I came up to the bench she was sitting on and saw a nice yellow. Ill try to find the picture. In the area trampled around the bench on the trail, were over 50 nice fresh ones. It was my best haul last year. I chalked it up to karma for trying to help the guy but it's about checking out the area at the right time.
