Went out for 2 hours this evening and scored 5lbs, I think the seasons about to be prime picking after this rain from what I saw today. Went back to the spot I found that big patch of on Friday that most were dried up and 30 new ones popped up in the same spot. Only after 2 days the new ones that popped up were already 2-3 inches tall. Only saw maybe a half dozen that were to far gone the rest were all fresh.

Shroom Dog

My spots aren’t giving up big numbers, but the size is good.

Ya shroom dog thoughs are some nice meaty looking shrooms right there, 80% of the ones I found yesterday where pretty large as well. I stumbled on a really nice area west of olathe that had a nice amount of shrooms. I left at least 100 that were water logged or to far gone. Only covered half the area thinking about heading back out to get the rest before we get anymore rain.

Found 6lbs Thursday. Glad to finally get some, but definitely not a good year. Worst year I’ve ever seen.

All very fresh, very nice haul mushroommadman. Thursday as in yesterday 4-21? I’ve seen a couple dozen fresh greys in the past 3 days but not as mature as thoughs. If you don’t mind me asking what county are you in?

Yes, these were found 4-21-16 just along the Missouri/Iowa line.

If I decide to make a trip up north looks like it needs to be sooner then later, Hoping Thursday or Friday I’ll make it to or 100 miles past the Iowa border.

Wish I could find them in the lbs. kinds of numbers but I haven’t been that lucky yet.

Went out east to Brookfield, MO this weekend…got access to some private land in a creek bottom…got my hopes up when 5 were found less than 10 feet from the car…unfortunately only found 1 more in the entire 3 hrs. of searching….6 is better than nothing I guess.

So, I take it that the season around KC is just about nil? It seems that way from the chatter in here. :roll: We are going to get quite a bit of rain this week and weekend with temps up in the high 70s/low 80s according to the weather guessers right now. Maybe this will help? I hurt myself and can’t go out into the woods this week or next. I guess I’m going to have to try to buy a pound or two from someone? :-?

madman, those are some beauties. makes me want to hit my spots up 35 again just to see. did you get those on any particular slope?

Kb- Found em mainly just flat ground, although most were found where the sun was hitting them pretty good. Some of the grays were in some thick underbrush. I’m kicking myself for not going back, I’m sure some nicer ones came up in those areas. How many I’ll never know. The way the season had been I talked myself out of wasting my time, but I knew I would have these regrets afterwards. Trying to get off work for next week and I’m planning on hitting Iowa pretty hard on up aways. I don’t think hitting your spots would be a bad idea especially if your headed through that way anyway on your way to another spot. I found 6 fairly decent ones around here Tuesday on a north facing slope. I wasn’t going to go look, but my wife talked me into it. Glad she did because it made a tasty morel, egg, bacon sandwich for supper last night! I’m going to check a few spots myself in Iowa where I found these 6lbs just to see on my way back through.
