In SE MN I have found them from April 25 until May 20th. Mother's day is usually pretty close to the peak of the season. I haven't looked much past the 3rd weekend in May but I have a feeling you could find quite a few on north facing slopes.

In 2006 I found the first blacks here on April 20th. That's the earliest I've ever found them out. Usually starts the beginning of May and lasts about 2 weeks. In 2005 I found the first on April 24th and was still picking on May 19th. Everything depends on temps and moisture conditions. 2005 was a great year. Last year was very poor, so I sure would like to see a banner year, as my stash is getting a little low. I find the blacks in popple stands, usually from 3-10 inches in diameter. I like bumpy uneven ground, hills sides or flat. The bumpy ground along the sides of logging roads is usually where I start. Hint, the side of a south or southwest facing hill can get awful warm on a 50 degree day but it still comes down to temp and moisture. A spot you pick hundreds one year may only produce a few the next! Another good idea is to look for spots with just dead leaves and hardly anything green except for maybe some moss. Blacks also like the base of the trees. On a few occasions I have picked blacks in the oaks but have rarely found them in pines.

Recon, thanks for the feed back. We have a camper on Edwards so I'm up there after May 1st all summer just about every week end. My buddy has a cabin up on Washburn so I have checked up off of co ro 155 I think it is that cuts up that way right out of Fifty, but have only found other types of shrooms growing. Maybe I'm to late. Have you ever ran up that road for a look?

    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
    • Because you are banking on not having to pay it back in your lifetime and are perfectly fine with passing that debt down to future generations which allows you to live a better lifestyle at their expense.  Some of us don't think it'e ethical to pass debt onto generations who will have no say in the process.
