    Looks like they are starting to show a little more size. Makes them easier to find. I won't be able to check the patches on my Hart county farm until next week. Hope they haven't gone past their peak by then. I haven't checked those patches in 2 weeks. This coming weekend's rains and warm temps should really make the blacks and the smaller greys/yellows pop.

    Ever had any luck in places that flood? Got a place I've never checked that will flood several times a year.

    I've never hunted what I would call a flood prone area following a time that it was recently under water. I do find the big yellows in creek and river bottoms that I assume may flood occasionally.

    I dont normally fina alot on places that flood but i have found some in areas that have flooded before. Rule of thumb i normally find them on hill sides and ridge tops that have never seen flood water.

    My thinking is would wash the spores out. But might wash some in also. I may check it. This will probably be last year on the farm I find all mine. It got cut last year. Under growth may be to much next year.

    I'm so jealous. I live on about 130 acres and haven't found 1 in the past few years. I haven't combed the whole farm, but there isn't a lot left to check. Not sure if it's my eyes or they're not here. I know people that used to find them here though.

    HAHA yea I hope I dont have any more ricks crawling on me. All jokes aside it is going to be a bad year for the bugs I do believe.

    Image (002).png Got in a short 1 1/2 hour hunt this afternoon in Jefferson in patches I picked last Sunday. Found 21 very fresh blacks ranging in size from 1-4 inches. All of these were very black and most were easier to see compared to the lighter (tan) blacks I have been finding this season. This week should be excellent following Saturday's rain, along with the upcoming warmer temps and predicted rains. Also picked almost a lb of very fresh oysters.
