Posted this in Northern IL. as well
Been finding 1-2 inch grays in northern Mchenry/Boone Co. All in full sunny sites, so definitely well on the way. Got rain yesterday and last night, hope they grow by the weekend. Start looking now, they are out there for sure.
I plan on looking around this weekend, and next weekend. Although, due to this late winter that just won't quit, I have a feeling our luck will be best the first week of May. I have seen some may apples and dandelions, which is promising. And also heard other, more experienced hunters, say that they have a feeling it's going to be a particularly good season for us. Here's to hoping they are right! Good hunting everyone.
Soil temp 51° 5" down in Union (60180) this morning.
