Nice! I may hit a couple of spots in Springboro and Miamisburg over the weekend that have produced in the past.
Found six more on one tree today, two big ones and four babies. Left the largest of the big ones(around seven pounds) as it was getting a little old. Montgomery county again.

Man, that is funny you say that. I hit a few low spots yesterday that typically produce and there was nothing to be found. The one hit I've had so far was on high ground as you say. What's your thoughts on that?
I was wondering myself. The age of the larger ones seems like they probably started close to a couple weeks back. Area was getting some really intense short rainstorms. I think the low spots might be a little to saturated right now, but the higher trees have right amount of moisture.

Everything I have found so far has been on high ground, nothing on the low ground oaks.
Those are the ones I've been checking. They are right beside a creek, but until yesterday it's been pretty dry around here. The creek was really low last time I checked them, which was Tuesday. There is an oak just up the hill from where the creek runs into a lake, and I've found some really nice ones now and then. If I can get out there tomorrow, I'll check it too.

Good luck man. Post some pics if you score.

Back story. Bought our house in 2016. Had to grind down a dead oak stump on the southwest side of the house. Reishi starting coming out of the ground stump 2 years ago then today, I go out to check the one Reishi that was coming up and I"ll be damned but there is a Hen there now too! Anybody ever experience anything like this?

I find lots of hens on dead oak, but I hear a few people say they have never found them on dead oak. That's a really fresh young one, congrats. I hope you let her grow. Going tomorrow to harvest a couple babies I left monday, if they're still there I will post pics.
Fingers crossed your young ones are still there! I plan to let this one grow out as much as I can.

Separately, you have much luck finding any lion's mane in SW Ohio? I've only found one small dried up one and that was 3 years ago.

I find chickens on dead oaks, but never hens. Of course, I only have one spot for hens, and everything in there is alive. Also, never found hens on anything but red oaks. Where I find my hens, just on the other side of the path, there are two absolute ginormous, old white oaks! I check them every time I'm down there. These trees are seriously huge, and I never have found anything near them.

They were still there, plus a third I did not see before. Left them again as they were only doubled in one week. Gonna go back thursday or Friday and check again.
