Went out looking in a couple of my early spots (Greene & Fayette Co.) on Saturday. Did well, Found about 2 lbs in 1 spot (south facing slope), Nothing in the other 2 spots. All nice size, some almost 5 -6". Couldn't get out Sunday. To many obligations. Heading out Wednesday, if the weather gets warmer.Good Luck to everyone.

Out on Saturday after turkey. Got my bird by 6:30. Then waited till 11:30 to go looking for shrooms. Didn't want to disrupt anyones hunting while I was looking for shrooms. Found 18 blacks. Looked for almost 4 hours. Hopefully this rain & higher nighttime temps will work their magic.

Haven't been out to much yet, but today I found a flush of grays under a big elm tree.(15 or so) I left them there because they were all pretty small. I'll be off work in a few days and go check them out again and start looking hard. Late this week and weekend should be good. It''ll be may already. (Smithton/Rostraver area)
I hear grays usually are a few days - a week before the big yellows.

Blacks always come up first for me and grays n yellows usually two-three weeks after but much to my surprise i hit a honey hole with giant grays 3-4 inches fresh as could be i had to climb under to dead cherry trees then up over to huge rocks to a giant tree with all its bark stripped with baby elms all around it.

Out looking yesterday evening. Didn't have a lot of time, hit a spot close to home. Found about 20 small, small greys under apple trees. Left them there to grow a little more.

I've only been "hunting" 4 or 5 years...Monday 4/29 I found five small greys in southern Allegheny Co.
Yesterday I went for a stroll along the Montour Trail in Washington County west of I-79 and found an amazing spot -- I picked about three dozen and left another 15-20 to see how they'd grow. I might be getting the hang of this!

the woods are very dry and areas where i generally harvest 1-2 housand have been dead so far. anyone in southwest pa finding them in higher elevations--i have been looking at lower elevations in proven spots with very little luck, but i have a spot on private land that is probably 1000 feet elevation but do not want to hike up unless you all are finding them up high.
