Went fishing yesterday at a private pond and noticed some dandelions on the south side of hill of the pond. Went out into the woods for about 10 mins just to check some things out. Mayapples are popping up but very small. Got some warm rain coming tonight then colder temps till the weekend. Should be possibly this weekend for some morels or for sure next week. Thinking it might be a pretty good year. I was looking through some of my old pictures and in 2011 I found 140 on April 27th of that year. I went back and checked the temps. for that time and it wasn’t nearly as warm as what it was today.

My goodness I’m going crazy dwak you got any spots you don’t care about I just want to find one already

Morel Mark

Got no morels – McHenry county has plenty of conservation land and most of it is okay for picking – i have not seen any closed to picking, but just watch for any sign at the parking lot. Now, start walking and looking. Shrooms are where shrooms are.

Morel Mark I hope you don’t mean MCCD land, that’s all off limits to mushroom picking, if your going in those spots watch your 6.

McHenry County is OFF LIMITS. Every place is a CONSERVATION area with exception to a state park. They patrol them heavily. I would strongly suggest elsewhere like Boone County can be hunted in every forest preserve. Talked with them last year.

Greetings. Never posted here before, but found the info quite helpful last season, and wanted to join in. I’m in Carroll County. Nothing yet except high hopes. Judging from the forecast, it’s just a matter of days…

You can not pick mushrooms in Boone County Conservation District either. I was told this by a CPO last year. His reasoning was because most of their parks are Conservation as well and you can not take flora or fauna from a conservation area. They will ticket you. Because pophead was told otherwise I called this morning and was told that you absolutely cannot pick in BCCD parks.

I live in Boone and know the area well. The bike trails are good if you have to come out here to hunt. But being that it is one of the smallest counties in Illinois it does get quite a bit of pressure and you may want to try a larger county.

Good luck everyone.

I’m sorry, I think I meant Winnebago County, Not Boone
