@ HI-LO-TX-HO: It is still a bit early for here in the KC area. Watch this board and the map at http://morelmushroomhunting.com/morel_progression_sightings_map.htm they’ll tip you off.

Anybody found any reds yet?

@ HI-LO-TX-HO: The May Apples aren’t even up, yet. If you’re going out in the woods, all you’re doing is tromping the daylights out of baby mushrooms. Remember: Patience is a virtue as good things come to those who wait. :wink:

I would suggest that it is a good time to be in the woods looking. I shall check a couple spots today. BTW how do you know the may apples are not up yet? I saw some just yesterday.
ramps are starting as well as the nettles are at the perfect stage, which I love. So in the woods I go.
If the little ones are not up walking over them can not hurt them.
and I enjoy finding the reds, if your not out early your missing out. but thanks for the advice.

Hi-Lo they just started in Oklahoma. Way to early around KC. Are you sure you know what a May Apple looks like? You will rarely get bad advice on this board. If you like the exercise and walking in the timber now is good time to scout out areas, don’t expect to see any morels.

From the research I have done, which is not always 100% good information, the picture that I posted above (click on the box with the question mark) should be what a mayapple looks like just after it has blossemed out of the ground. If so, they are up in the St. Louis area for sure.

Hey folks! I am new to this morel board. It is a bit confusing to me. I look for the post listings and some of them (like this one) say 2013 but they are updated still. I just created a new post named Texas County 2014. I went out today but saw zero. I guess my question is, does everyone keep posting on the posts named 2013 for the 2014 updates? Just wondering so I would know to check all of them. Thanks!

Another site with a lot of Missouri information is morels hunters dot com.

Morelmaniac – That is NOT a picture of a mayapple! I think it’s a Trout Lily, but it is most definitely NOT a mayapple! That could be a dangerous mistake since the trout lily is a delicious edible and the mayapple is known to be extremely toxic! Mayapples look like a waxy, green umbrella and they grow in massive troops of several plants. When they are sprouting, they are a pointy, rolled-up umbrella for a few days before they finally stretch themselves open. They have a weird smelling flower. I have huge amounts of mayapples on my property and they have yet to sprout at all yet. I live in a steep valley, so higher up folks may have them now even north of me, but not me yet. They are really close though, maybe today or tomorrow even. They are one of the first things to come up in Spring, The morels are soon to follow and I can’t wait.
