    Started finding a few 1-2" grays on Sunday. Between Sunday and yesterday picked about 20 total. If we could get some stable warm weather it'd be on like donkey kong. The most I found on a single tree was 3. Can't wait for good numbers!! Is anyone els on here from southwest mo? I live right outside Joplin.

    I\'m from south of STL but hunt in buffalo mo and I\'m hearing they\'re just now starting to find them. I don\'t get that bc I found 20 in south county and ground temps have to be warmer in southern mo. All mine were in creek beds and all in 20\' radius

    Went out April 16th, found 443 yellows. Went out next day, found 734. Went out day after that and found over 200. Over 25 pounds total. Don't ask me where...Southwest Missouri under sycamore trees. since we got this cold weather it's slowed down maybe even stopped for a while. Need another few days in the 80's and maybe it'll be back on again.

    Found just a few the day before the rain hit. Nothing in big numbers. If this rain stops I may get out today as well

    I found quite a few today. Most were a second flush on south slopes, and a few from north facing slopes. The northern shrooms will be out in full force next week for sure. The rain has taken its toll though and discolored them prematurely.
