    I looked in Summit and Medina yesterday, may apples still coming up. Dryads Saddles barely poking out. Late next week I think, not gonna stir up leaves for babies.

    Got out today and looked around the sugar maple grove and some tulip trees that I know about in Mahoning Co. Nothing doing. Looking at the pics from southern Ohio their woods are way ahead of anything happening around here! Tomorrow is yard work. Maybe this weekend.

    Took a soil temp reading this PM. Still hovering around the mid-50's. We did get a little rain mid-day. The big storm went south of me through Canfield, Boardman, Poland area, which means it probably hit my main hunting area pretty good.

    I see a lot of posts about south and central ohio, some in prime time, some barely beginning. Then one person in portage/summit saying theres action. I think Ohio has a lot of micro climates, valleys and hills and what not. I think realistically NE will be first week in may, just like usual, despite the warmer than normal temps.

    Great tip - I guess it doesn't hurt to start looking now so long as expectations are adjusted accordingly. I plan to go out this weekend... if there are no mushrooms, I'll at least still have my binos for the warblers passing through!

    Last year I had an ok season and thought it was over, then I was relieving myself in my friends backyard and saw a fresh yellow. So I went back to spot that didnt produce that year...wham fresh yellows everywhere. NE ohio in particular starts late and goes on either longer or shorter than other seasons. So weird.

    This is some I found last year on this date. This year I have found about 10 in the same spot about half the size. 7A604AB8-E089-45B2-AA13-CE7D6C0DA770.jpeg

    I have found a couple dozen blacks in Summit County, though they are not nearly as prolific as in past years.

    Some were found around Loudonville and Millersburg this past week.
    I've been out to see some new areas. Nothing yet.
    Holmes County area has started.

    Yep, southern Summit... I have been in places (in both southern AND northern Summit county) that have may apples a foot tall and leaves wide open. Of course, less than few miles away, the may apples are barely popping! Craziness!

    Oh, and the poison ivy is now making its debut... already, nearly 10 inches tall!

    In Medina county past 5 years my finds start around May 5th. I know they start early in micro climates. My cousin found blacks up north by Cleveland in one spot last week. So they are out there, just hard to find. Good luck to everyone. I have a good feeling about this year.

    I like for it to get up around 60.

    I've been looking at the same thing. Some folks south of I-70 are going berserk, while others are saying things are just getting started! I like the nice gradual warm up we've been having with decent, regular rainfall, but the warm up seems to have gotten a bit too gradual! I'm in Mahoning Co., and we always seem to be one of the last of the last!
    All you can do is keep hunting.
