    Seems like it will be a normal Mid April start here in NCWV. 10 day forecast looks favorable, temps in the 60s and 70s. Only had 2.4" of rain in my area in March so that's a concern.

    I agree mid month looking good and a little rain wouldn't hurt. I am in Harrison County.

    I'm hoping to get out toward the end of the week. Thinking things should be started by then. I will let you know.

    I saw on FB guys posting from Fayetville way a bunch of big mature greys and yellows. They swear up and down its legit, but I cant see it yet.

    Went to my early spot in Morgantown. Counted 15 before backing out so as not to step on any. I think it’s going to be a good year!! 397BDABF-432C-44F5-A095-824A2696AC46.jpeg

    I walked my woods in Western Harrison Co. Found the remnants of one tiny grey. Nothing else above the leaf litter yet. Woods were extremely dry so I'm hoping the rain tonight and tomorrow give us a good soak. Temps int he 80s today should help get things moving even more.

    Checked some new spots today. Lots of ramps but no mushrooms. Woods actually look behind this close to the river

    A buddy of mine picked in Boone County Wednesday. The picture he posted that I saw had 68 greys that he and one other found that day.
    I am in Raleigh County they are not up where I hunt. With my elevation over 3500 feet I am about 2 weeks behind Boone County.
