5 ,i just looked at radar,i'v got rain within 150 miles of me [raining in st.louis]if it rains the hen of the woods will come on here...i find most of my hens around dead oak trees....i don't care much for the puffballs either....did you get your stand in a hot spot...out sang hunting last week i seen lots of new rubs and places they are tearing up the acorns...
Chief it'll be a real hot spot come full rut. I put it just uphill of trail that looks like a cowpath on a north facing steep slope where I had my best dig this year (27 ounces). Pretty much a funnel area because of the steepness of the terrain. Heres a pic of a puffball and the roots off of 3 4-prongs and a 3-prong I spotted while hanging that stand.
Those 4 roots added up to 2 ounces the puffball was just a little bigger than a softball
