I spent about 4 hours covering 50 acres.  Looked in every spot that ever produced before. The only mushroom I found was on the side of a tree.  Certainly not the morels I was looking for. If anyone is finding any morels how about some pictures?  Rick

I have two patches I hit every year, but I swing by them on the way home from work. Should be a few weeks yet before they grow, I hope.

Going out tomorrow. We have about 20 acres we usually check fist thing in the spring. If no luck we go to 360 acres of private (With permission) and usually get enough for us. I'm the only one in the house that eats them.

I haven't had any since we moved here to Texas, grew up on them in Indiana and found them when we lived in the mountains of N.C. I really enjoyed hunting and eating them each spring.

First of the season and with all the rain they have had up there, it should be a good season.

We usually get morels around the middle of May but will probably be later this year. All we need is some heat and a shower or two and the oyster mushrooms will appear first, then morels, and then it's pretty much a smorgasbord 'till the snow flies again---- oh, cripes, did I say the S. word??   Sorry, guys, it just slipped out.

Just about any kind for the fence cutting , mushroom stealing, trespassing   "*&$%^#**$# "   that watch me go to work and then help themselves before I get there.

Went back to the woods today, all I  found was a skunk carcass.  Figure the coyotes got him.   Rick
