I think we may have dodged a bullet boys and girls. The cold front that rolled through last week and into this week probably pushed my 1st shroom hunt out to the 1st week of April, still early but not nearly as early as what we were looking at prior to that front. Redbud and Plum trees are just getting decent size buds and look to be 7-14 days before they are in full bloom.

I’ll probably go out before the 1st week of April just to get that 1st hunt out of the way but I’m thinkin around KC it won’t take off until after March is over. Now we need rain and a lot of it!

I have been hearing about a few finds in southwest Missouri! Not sure when I will start looking!

Blacks has started here in the Southwest, found at least 40 yesterday and over 20 today. May apples are also up. The ground has a lot of moisture, but a much needed rain would help a lot. Good luck to y’all.

I like to post pics, just don’t know how. If you are on Facebook I posted picture on the Morel Mushroom Hunting page.

Lots of rain chances starting this Thur and Friday up here. If we get all this moisture it will be a good start for the year!! I’m pumped!

I doubt we will see much until we get warm rain this weekend. I wait about 5 days before i go hit my spots. No point in picking babies that will be full size in 5 to 7 days.

I went out in Bonne Terre MO on some of my creek bottoms and didn’t find anything. No may apples and not a lot of green. Though I did see some early buds. I think we’re still looking at a week or two if we get the warm rains they’re predicting later this week. I’ll likely go out looking in my spots this weekend around Imperial MO. If anyone sees anything coming up out around St Genevieve, POST IT! I’ve got a new bit of properties I really want to scan when I know things are going in that area. It’s about 300 acres full of creeks and canyons! It’s gotta be a great place at the right time!

This link gets you to 4in soil temps. Once we hit the 50s and get real rain ( like SE mo on Monday ) start your timers. Nothing up in the St Louis area. Bone dry = no shrooms.
