Should be good this year with the moisture. Last year I left way more than I picked.

:-) I know it already feels like a heat wave compared to what it has been.

Hello,
I have been lurking on here for several years now and finally decided to join up.!
This warm snap has me itching for spring morels….
Had a great morel season last spring and I am soooooo looking forward to this year.!!

Nate

Well welcome oklahduckbuster!! The more the merrier to this usually friendly message board. Sounds like you are just like the rest of us…. Can’t wait to hit the woods and find the first Morel. Too bad we can’t hurry them along. They always take their sweet time, guess that’s what makes them so special. I think we are in for an above average year.!!

I think we could have a banner year if it don’t get 80 and windy too quick when they do start. Last year was killer up here. We are always about the last in OK to find. I live right near the KS line. I honestly left hundreds of pounds last year that I did not pick. Picked all we could dehydrate. Turned my boy and my Mom on to the place and they too got what they needed. I found then where there was a lot of ground cover that held the snow we got and also held the moisture. These were late in season but very fresh five to six inch. Believe it or not mostly in tall dead johnson grass and plum patchs.

Do you think this 60-70 degree temps will make the morels pop sooner this year?

February 18, 2014 at 6:59 pm #47640

Nate

I don’t think so lizard…You can’t ever tell for sure but it looks like even if we start getting consistently warm temps the budding trees and spring are going to be late this year.. I’m guessing two weeks late so I would guess the first Oklahoma Morel around March 23….Maybe even up to a week later. This is just a guess though, but often times I get in the ballpark at least. We have 20′s as lows in the forecast for next week. It usually takes two weeks of lows around 50 for them to pop good around here.

Alright, I’m pumped. Come on dogwoods start blooming. Of course I never wait that long.

Im with Nate on this one, I think thell be a little late this year especially with this colder weather coming in this next week and the trees aint even started budding yet, so I don’t think will have to worry about the shrooms coming up within next 2 or 3 weeks atleast. Just my opinion though :)

Here’s the farmers almanac for March

MARCH 2014: temperature 56° (3° below avg.); precipitation 2″ (0.5″ below avg.); Mar 1-9: Periods of rain and snow north, rain south; chilly; Mar 10-14: Sunny, cool; Mar 15-20: Rain, then sunny, cool; Mar 21-24: Showers, cool; Mar 25-31: Sunny, then showers, warm.

So depending on there definition of cool we might not be finding shrooms till around the 25th.
But hey we live in Oklahoma so you never can tell what the weather will do ;)

there will be morels in oklahoma as soon as they start popping on the north side of the red river and i don’t see that being much longer than by the end of the first week of march. most of oklahoma still has a bit of waiting to do. i don’t have a job right now so my plan is to start south and follow the morels all the way to kansas and missouri this year. i’m so excited!

I believe it will be like every other year. Redbuds bloom, morels pop and turkeys die. Last week in March First week of April for the Northern border of OK.
