I live down in Western KY in Carlisle county and have only been hunting shrooms about a year now, I'm open to suggestions and helpful hints from any and everyone to help me out. I started this forum to see if any other guys/gals are having any luck yet in my area.

found those yesterday in Hickman County, KY. Not many but they were my first of the year so I at least didn't get skunked!

I'm in western ky today hunting in lbl is it better in the bottoms or ridges
I was told by a friend who is older that has been hunting shrooms for years around WKY and he said the best places were north facing slopes, around young poplar trees, and dead elm trees. I always try to look around dead brush/limbs or along creek beds/banks as well.

I went to lbl today and didn't see anything. I'm new to the area so I'm not sure if I was in the right spots. I tried skirting the lake but couldn't find a single one, even in the green areas.

I'm on the same General concenseses as Lori posted. Found outside of all day sun, around elm, hickory, apple, and gum trees. Well drained soil.
Most the ones I have found have been on flat areas with modest shade.

Pretty good haul today found in Carlisle county, KY. Went to some unexplored territory with a friend who has never been. Battled the rain and brought out 43.

He loves it now. I found most of these in the woods where it was clear with just fallen leaves and dead stumps/trees in the area. The area was damp and had some slight slopes but for the most part it was flat.

Biggest one I found yesterday and the biggest one I've found in my life. That is my IPhone 5 to show a perspective of just how big it really was.
