    Happy new year fellow hunters. Who's ready to do some hunting?
    I thought I would create a fresh 2019 thread for us again.

    If you can be so kind as to post your outings, findings, or other fungi related information here for Southern Michigan, that would be helpful for all of us.

    I hope my fellow "Michiganders" are doing well.
    And best of luck this season!

    P.S. - Please take the new poll survey too!

    Nah its legit, this gent finds them in this spot every year about this time, just a few rocks/boulders and such can create little micro climates and such.
