Congrats on the finds!
I think it's over here. Grass is knee high and ticks are THICK! I'm still hitting traditional hotspots (just because the weather is great for mushrooms) but it would be hard to see one even if they were there.
I found 38 yesterday. About 30 of them were under one tree. The other eight were in two other spots. The other hundreds of trees I checked didn't have any. I noticed they were all in spots that the sun hit. Still a little early here in SE WI.
