Dear Fellow Hunters,
I am down here by Truman lake I Got the itch also! Looks like rain on Thursday after rain today, Truman Lake water surface temp. is only 42 degrees. Forecast for 70's this weekend but, I still think it is to early. After hunting for 30 plus years April 15th, TAX day was always my main date. Last year was April 19th by Truman Lake (2014) when I found mt first morels. Robins just showed up here 4 days ago, day lilies are up but need to grow some more, no dandelions up down here yet. Last year, the first day I found them, Truman Lake was 58 degrees surface temp. and that was the first day the day lilies bloomed. As spring is progressing, I think we are ahead of last year. I will probably have to scartch y itch on Sunday if for nothing else to get my legs ready for the season. Wish You All The Best.
