Hi all, it has been far to long since I have been on this site. Though I think it is still too early here Summit County, I plan on heading out right now to go see what the woods are looking like. I enjoy reading everyone's finds and stories so I thought I would throw Summit Co on here and read some local ones. Good luck, and may the shroom gods be with you!

Summit county checking in! I am heading out today to see what the woods near me are looking like. Maybe I can get lucky and pull a few blacks out of the woods :) For sure lots of Ramps up and big enough to enjoy.

Any luck sheephat? I have been looking for a good place to find ramps. Are they usually in the woods or more toward a watered area? Good Luck today I will also be out!

First time posting. Been watching this site for awhile but never made a profile. I am in northern summit county. Been looking for a couple weeks now with no luck. My dogwood out back is budding though! I have a feeling it will be any day now. Especially with the weather that is supposed to come.

@JemaJema Thats great!! I have never had much luck finding blacks around here. I am going to try to get out after work today to do some looking around. I also would like to run into some ramps... I have never had them before but I've heard good things. hopefully I will have some pics for you guys soon

Been out 4 times doing circles around areas that always produce nothing yet, plenty of ramps! This rain and warmer weather will bring them out!!! Get ready and let the little one grow!

A buddy and I went out yesterday to check out a new spot... We looked for a solid 3 hours and found nothing to show for it morel-wise. Right before we left we ran into a big patch of ramps.... even sold some to the chef at a local restaurant. Good day all in all but I hope the shrooms start poppin up soon

Been out looking every day but no luck. There are tons of toadstools and fiddleheads and tons of rain, seems to be perfect conditions but have found none yet.....

We found a handful of good sized Blacks yesterday in Summit. All by one tree and then did not find anything else the rest of the day :(

About how long after the blacks start to show up can we expect to start seeing yellows?

I found a pound of blacks the first time out and went back the other day and found some more in the same area but some idiot that probably can't bend at the waist from slothlyness took a rake to the area and messed it up. Found another two pounds yesterday, it is going to be a great year.

Half-frees seem to have just popped up overnight... these arent my favorite to keep so I left them for someone else. From what I have seen in years past, the greys and yellows should be right around the corner. I wish these cold nights we have been having let up soon. Im going to hold off until thursday or so, but I'm very optimistic

"I left them for someone else"

That was nice of you Branderson, but I can't help to think if your not illegally hunting on public lands who that "someone else" might be?

Last year Rangers were out in full force around Cuyahoga Valley as they will be this year....

I hunt public but not in metro parks... which is hard to do, and I'll admit I have found myself on metro park property before, for they are scattered everywhere. I don't know of any private land to hunt except for a couple small backyards. I'm unsure of the legality of my spots but I have been going there since I was a child. I was under the impression public land was fair game. Any insight or legal sources you could provide would be helpful.

Take only photographs, leave only footprints.... That's pretty much it when you visit any public park... Chances are, your illegally removing fungi from a protected area....sorry to break it to ya', check into it, there may be exceptions, however not in my area, all parks have it posted on their info board
