ive searched, how many miles ive trekked, how many hours ive searched (over 40hrs now), how many different elevations ive tried, how many trees ive looked under in supposedly textbook conditions/areas etc etc etc etc etc... ...and have found absolutely nothing. anyone willing to tell me in extreme detail how they search, from when they step out of their car,<span style="text-decoration:underline"> i\'ll read the whole thing</span>. exactly what you do, what details you look for, how you look. act like ive only seen the name of the mushroom. what face of the mountain, ridges or ravines, how far from the tree, how close you are to the ground. im talking details. im so gahdamn sick of getting skunked and wasting so much gas, time and energy. im damn near close to throwing in the towel on the whole thing. i read everywhere that the hunt is half the fun....well when youve searched 1000ft in elev and put a full work week in (40hr) PLUS overtime...that sh.t isnt fun anymore.
