Who's thinking we might have an early mushroom season?
With this mild winter and warm temps I am already slobbering over the 2012 mushroom season. I am thinking we might have an early start and am keeping my eyes and ears open.
Typically I start hunting too early and get a little burnt out and discouraged before the season really picks up. Am always wondering if it's too early, too late etc.
Hit the freaking motherlode three years ago but then not too good the last two years even in the motherlode location.
Share your tips and PM me your spots, LOL!
I still can't ID my trees so I typically wander aimlessly through the woods and get lucky here and there. Been lost a few times but thankful now for GPS as it has saved my butt a few times.
Good Hunting in 2012!
It's plenty warm they only need 68 twenty four seven, it's 70 here now. You being farther south should be a week or two before us up here.
We have been having high wind, which they don't like, and it's way too dry here, but they call for rain the next five days.
It does pay to know your trees, but I can do without getting lost. LOL

Funny I've been talkin to guys at work about this.....I'm ready to get out and start lookin but here in Indiana its still a lil to dry I think ...we have had a very mild winter so I'm hopin this is goin to be the best year I've seen.....as far as the trees go I wonder always seem to do ok....but have found out they like to grow around apple trees as I have found a lot around some old apple trees I'm our woods
I have heard of a few reds being found around the St. Louis area, but I won't be touching the woods until at least early April after we get some good rains.
I sure hope I'm wrong though....
These gobbling turkeys have my head spinning!!!
I always find 2 mushrooms and 102 tic's I did hit the mother load a few years back. Sit down for a turkey hunt 1 morning. And when it got light out I was surround by shrooms.

I looked yesterday evenin for a couple hours in some spots that usually produce. Zilch, nothing. We need more rain and it's early. The may apples haven't come up yet, that in itself tells me it's early.
I tried today
Walked 3 hrs in the Gasconade bottoms found 0. Lil to early another week of warm weather and some more rain will bring em on. MMMMM-MMMM cant wait to enjoy some smoked spoonbill with sauted morels.

I saw on the news the ticks are out in full force. Be sure to juice up first
