Headed out today for the first hunt of the season. Cool weather had me discouraged, but with the dandelions starting to show up, the henbit in full color, and the redbuds swelling, I had to get out. Looked high and low, long and hard...and finally found the first of the season in my early patch! Game on in SW IL(Jersey Co.)!

Great to hear David. It's chilly up here still. Nothing really greening up yet in the forest. Bud's just starting to form on tree's and shrub's. Lawns are just starting to get some good color. We got some good rain, now we need some warmth. It'll be a couple, three weeks till anything comes up. I'm figuring last week of April into first week of May. Ground temps 3'' down on my thermo were 48 degress a couple day's ago. I hope it isn't gonna be a short season? What a completely different setting from last year. Stizzle, good luck to you. Everyone, please remember not to litter.

Sup y'all , man I liked the old format better minus trolls.

Was in Johnson Cty last weekend and saw loads of dandelions in yards, figured you'd start finding early shrooms by now.

Turkey opener in the morning, can't wait for shrooms :lol:

Just a sign morels are around. May apples are all over , so I never look for them to be where I look. However they are typically in eyesight when I do find them
