    I moved up to NY from Indiana in January and have been trying to find some mushroom hunting locations. I'm looking for general spots to look around in Jefferson County. Preferably public land. I live near Carthage and have been looking throughout Beartown State Forest the last couple days. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I work in Watertown during the day, so any areas near there are welcome too. Thanks.

    Hogsback may not be a bad idea. Go thru natural bridge on rt3. Hogsback rd is about 3 miles outside of town on the right. Ive heard of dome people finding them there.

    Thanks for the replies. I tried Hogsback last weekend. Didn't find anything and the flies were horrible. I plan to try again this evening out that way.
