Agree w/Mushroomman22, found them around the FD area over the weekend, 50 at at time, but when I went 30 miles south to my regular spot, had absolutely no luck at all. Surprising how much of a difference 30 miles can make.
In open areas. And I also agree with you too blondee. But I found them at my normal spot but tried about 20-30 miles southwest covered about 2 miles and NOTHING! Mostly all grays. Some about 4 inchs tall. Was very pleased with the 10 about that size. The grays in the woods are just popping. Lots of 1 inchers. I tried the southernly faced hills but still had better luck in open areas
Everything found thus far, Webster County & surrounding counties, has been 2/3 the way up (not down for once) on west facing slopes. I've been finding less around downed trees/tree bark this year and more in open areas and grassy locations. Hoping the spots further south are producing this weekend, otherwise it is off to the back-up spots this weekend! Good luck both of you!!
I found lots yesterday around the dead elms. Hit a jackpot of about 60 grays various sizes in one area. Not right in my spot from previous years but about 100 yards away. Pretty shaded area too. But yes I've had best of luck in open areas too. Lots of yellows too. These past few cold nights will put a damper on us.
