Looking forward to this season, we're due for a good one. Found first ones near Springfield on 3/19, normally find them around Masters(golf) weekend. Watch the progress unfold the next 3 weeks, better late than never. Snow this upcoming Sunday will have thoughts of discouragement but no worries, it's actually normal most years. If it snows 2 weeks after they pop worry, but never before.


Unfortunately I'll be living vicariously through others this year, that being so, I'll bet it's one of the best seasons in recent years.

Good luck all, it's nearly upon us.

Like the registration, hopefully you can change password somehow?

Things are looking good that is for sure. We finally are getting the temps up now and plenty of rain. Time for a little less rain and a bit more sunshine. Dandilions out everywhere...we are close here in Williamson Co.

Perry county here. I think I might hit it tomorrow just to get loosened up. I don't find any black ones so I got to wait on the yellow and grays. I have a spot where they come up early. I am thinking next weekend should be good.
Gonna try to get some crappie to go with them for a fry.

Ground temps are coming up quickly. Few Dandelions are up and the Buck Brush is leafing up. Saw photos of a few greys around St. Louis and KC. Hopefully we have a mellow and Humid spring! Good luck to all!

Hudson27....I use Sawyer's insect repellent. It is primarily Permethrin. This stuff is great...you need to treat your clothes that you are going to wear with it and let it dry over night. It is what the military uses and I have used for mushroom and turkey hunting.....best thing i've found!!!!!
Night temps in perry will slow down growth but I bet there will be some up by then! Ill be in P'ville through the weekend fishing and picking!!!!

I'll be in p'ville as well this weekend doing the same exact thing lol. Was a little worried about the night temps, but I have to agree they should be quite a few up by this weekend, fingers crossed. If i don't get any shrooms i'll be sure to have plenty of crappie:) hope we all find pounds and pounds!

You guys are not allowed to hunt here unless you teach me how to catch crappie. I just came out of the hills. No early ones yet. I did find a small red one. Thing there should be a few up by the weekend. I hope they don't come up till Monday though.

As far as ticks I was in a woods down by carbondale where I was working today for about 20 minutes and picked 5 of the off of me. I use deep woods off, the powder form in blue spray cans generously and had 0 ticks from the strip hills.
