Thanks Now the board will be nice and family oriented and free of all the negativity. As far as the fall season went or is going for me.......Bad! One smaller Hen and a bunch of old dried up Chickens. This year's drought just did a number to the hunting season. Still on the look out for Oyster's, but even those are hard to find this year. Think I will just resort to growing them indoor's this winter again. Hope all you fellow shroomer's did better than me this fall. Can't complain about the Morel season. I did better than average. Here's to a lot of moisture this winter, spring and summer with perfect temp's, so we can have an insane Morel season 2013. Cheer's! METAL!

Yes, it's been a long time coming. Glad to see it come about. I hope this will be a smaller and friendlier site. Overall 2012 wasn't a good year for mushrooms, but the ironic thing was that I found 16 lbs of morels in one patch. my largest single patch of all time. Another ironic thing was it was in a grove of sycamore trees. I've hung up my mushroom sack for the year, we'll see what 2013 brings.

I'd find something to keep you busy the next three to four weeks because there haven't even been any reports from southern Illinois yet. There have have been some rumored sightings in southern Indiana and Missouri, but nothing from downstate yet, but should be within the week. We've had more or less adequate moisture throughout the winter up here in northern Il, but the spring rains haven't kicked in. This is the time of year I start to get edgy. My guess is for the last week of April for northern Illinois.
What's this? Lots of constructive posts without name-calling, accusations and garbage? This can't be the same site! My address bar says, so this must be the place. Halleluiah, this site has finally grown up. Long time coming.

We're looking at 2-3 inches of rain here in northern Illinois next week, so we're on our way. It won't be an early season, but I don't think it will be a "late" season either. It sounds like it's on in southern Illinois, we should follow within 3 weeks or so.
