    Thanks Brandon thats right around the corner I believe! A Buddy and I are traveling from Ohio to that area and we're trying to narrow down a time frame so we dont get skunked. I appreciate any updates you can provide. Planing on next weekend,Any thoughts on timing?

    "Pshyc"...No, i don't know the Rubels. I went out Wed. and checked two of my trees. Only 2 mushrooms at each. Decided to save my energy for the weekend. The hardest part of mushroom hunting is being patient for them to start popping. I hope this year the hardest part is lugging around all of the mushrooms i find. :)

    Nice find TheNeer! Are these along rivers or in hills? Any particular trees you are finding them around? Thanks for any information and good luck!

    Found all these in a 40ft radius on a south facing hill about 300 yrds from the Maquoketa river. Elm and Walnut trees around but mostly open area with May apples and little under brush. Good Luck
