Check sandy stream-side locations (i.e. well-drained floodplains); they seem to associate with tulip polars. Areas of a thick privet understory can be good - not because of the privet, but because privet tends to thrive in similar locations. I usually hunt about an hour southeast of you, and generally go the last weekend in March or the first weekend in April, but I will probably try this coming weekend (March 11-12) this year.
