Blacks are everywhere around Vanderbilt. Finding them where there is very little vegetation. Ash and poplar, especially along pines.

I was always told they never grow near pines...is that a myth?

No they do. I've just never found a ton in them.

Re: Grayling-Thumb Lake-Vanderbilt-Piegon Riv

We killed them right on the edge of the pines. Ash/poplar groves that but up to pines was the spot. Also we stuck almost always right next to the rd. Went deeper into the woods and didn't find much, stayed within sight of the rd and hit them good. Maybe because everyone just overlooks the roads thinking they are picked over??

Good point! I will look near the roads....I want to get out there today before the thousands of people come up here this weekend and saturate the place!

I'm not sure if it is people skip over the road or if it has been so cool that the sun has warmedthe soil more at the edges of the woods.

I have found blacks near pine trees.
I posted this somewhere else on this site...it is somewhere out west where the mother lode was found around dying Grand Firs.
We have Balsam Fir in the Northern Lower Peninsula and all across the Upper Peninsula. When I go up north this weekend I may search around fir trees just to see if I find anything.
My neighbor has a Balsam Fir here in Berrien Co. It hosted Yellow-Orange Fly Agarics in 2012.
