I'm in Adams County, and I haven't seen any either. I usually just wait til the temp gets above 70 for a few days, then go look. This year is going to be a bit tricky, since the weather doesn't want to cooperate. I'm going to look on sunday and see what I find.

I've been out several times in Allen county. I haven't found anything yet, but every time I get back out there the conditions look better and better. I'm hoping it won't be long now!

In southern dekalb county and my early spots are looking good, maybe early next week if the weather warms just a bit. We've got two weeks before it's in full swing! Mother's day aught to be a blast.

I'm so ready! My first year hunting was the year before last and I found less than 10 but was so happy! Last year, nothing :( so I am hoping to find some this year. My problem is, I dont have any woods to check. I need a mushroom hunting friend to show me the ropes!! I have train tracks near me and was thinking of walking those. Either way, to get out after a wayyyy to long of a winter, lol, and breathe the fresh air and see all the new green growth, I'LL TAKE IT!

Mushrooms seem to love ridgelines. You have any form of steep 'hill,' no matter if it's only 2 feet tall, and the seem to love growing on the edge of them. Railroad tracks are great places. So are the erosion banks along creeks and rivers. Also look around elm and apple trees.
