Was wondering if there's anyone that can recommend some places to hunt in Champaign County. Hunted for the first time last year and was unsuccessful. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Did you find the asparagus growing there or in your garden. Do you forage for ramps I was wondering if you saw any of those up already. They are like green onions.

Truckerman, you are making me jealous. If they don't pop here in Piatt County soon, I'll scoot over to the lake. Are you willing to suggest which side of the lake I should try: North, South, etc.?

Goillini, just got back from looking in Piatt county & still no luck.
I would say any day now for our area. Once things are going for sure is the best time to go with someone with more experience. How many wooded acres do you have for hunting?

I've never been one to keep my spots secret. Today's success was in a small section of woods between the boondocks boat ramp parking lot and the pavilion parking lot. I'm sure they're all over but this is where I was today. I also hit piat and found none. Another bit of advice ticks are out I didn't plan for this and found one walking on my shirt after I git home.

Went out yesterday and found 20 morels. This is my first found ever. happy happy me very happy. All at the same spot. I Left a lot there that was very small. I found them like I found my first antler shed. I stop to let some water out and boom at my feet there they be. This find was the coolest thing. My friend told me to if I wanted to find morels that I need to have a morel walking stick. So I made one and went out with it and within 25min I found my first morel.
