    Still dry. Need a good long 60 to 75 degree rain. Until we get a proper soaking we all will be spending all day looking to find two mushrooms.

    I found a little over a pound today in the Sioux city area. In an area with a lot of direct sun. Most all of them were small, and still greys, with a few larger blondes (I think the recent rain made them pop). The forecast is not looking good, we need heat. I'm thinking people around here should start looking hard this Sunday or Monday, when the temps are going to be higher. The rain was great, now we need the heat!! Good luck everyone!!

    Wanted to add, these were not sand mushrooms, all these were forest found.

    SW, sounds like you have had some fun. It is sad to go to spots that used to be so reliable, only to find the habitat has changed over the years and the elms are not to be found. Particularly when you have been hunting 40 plus years. On the other hand I go to places that I used to avoid because they are better now. I guess that is why some folks only hunt bottoms. If they are there, they are there. In the hills its much tougher to keep good spots.

    I hear ya on the habitat, KB. The place I found them last night used to (10 to 20 years ago) put up hundreds a year -- early, middle and late season. And then it wasn't so good so I quit looking there as hard for awhile and then I went back last year or the year before just for the hell of it and it seemed like it was starting to come back, though not as good as the good old days but still worth the time. Weird. I've always thought this place, and the manner and shape of the spots in which they grew, resembled a vein-like system. Just the feeling this area has always given me. I'm always wondering where the end of the vein is, and always hoping it runs a long ways, and it did last night. I couldn't gewt out tonight but need to soon before it's all over. Bittersweet this time of year as it winds down in my spot. Hope the hills can hum with mystery a little longer yet...

    Found about 3 dozen small to medium greys, in the woods by the Missouri this afternoon.
