Seeing the same thing down here. Many spots have none or just a couple small ones. I think were gonna have to pick fast this year. Sunny areas have them, but anything with shade is way behind. I haven't even picked any yet lol.

Re: Hmmmm... Heading to the 45th parallel Fr

We returned from Up North last night. Only made it to the woods one time on Friday when the weather was nice. The woods were dry with little growth. There were lots of people in the woods with no one finding much of anything. One lady said that they were very small and under the leaves (raking?). The rain this weekend should help but it is sooo cold up there. Low to mid 40s the past couple of days. Now, they need some heat to go with the rain. On a sad note, the State of Michigan continues to chop down our favorite spots. One of our woods was heavily marked for desecration. It didn't look like they were going to leave much of anything in it.

I went to Gaylord for the annual spring dinner, and the spring conditions up there were about 3 or 4 weeks behind the Southern Counties in Michigan.
If there were any blacks up there, they would have been very small.
I think Memorial Day Weekend will be a good time for finding blacks in the Lower Peninsula above the 45th parallel, and maybe across the Southern part of the U.P.
I found a fresh black in Northern Wexford county, probably around 1500 ft above sea level, and 8 fresh whites a little further south, probably around 1400 ft. in elevation.
