    Report Your Finds Here for 2017

    That one board is getting too long so I thought why not start a 2017 one here?

    If you can please report your finds on this topic, it will make it easier for us to stay posted.

    I see Matherly reported a find in Southern Indiana
    by Evansville or Hoosier National Forest.

    That's good news!

    I saw the dot on his map but the report said Jefferson, Indiana. I mapped it just to see how close to OH it was. It's slightly NW of Indianapolis. Was a little shocked to see a find anywhere in Indiana this early. I may be headed to OH sooner than later . . . .

    Interesting. I guess we'll have to wait for more details!

    In any event, very cool. :)

    Ok, interesting...

    So I see the report too. March 2nd.

    Couple things, "FB" for name must mean Facebook.
    (I noticed many have FB for the name in the report)

    That's a little too non-specific for myself.

    Also, I see it does say only JEFFERSON for location,
    which would be really surprising if it were. (Not saying impossible!)

    Lastly, and I need help on this one:

    He/She found 50+ morels looking at the picture, and it says they're "blacks"

    Do they look like blacks to any one else?

    Thank God someone started a new thread for this season.. Having to jump to page 101 to see current post was getting aggravating.. I looked at the post on Matherly's page, about the Morel find in Jefferson.. I find it hard to believe that greys are popping up anywhere in Indiana right now.. I'm 60 miles north of Indy, and while it has been an extremely warm winter, the ground Temps are no where close to where they need to be for the greys to pop.. The warmest reading I've seen in my yard was 43, and that thermometer was in the sun on a day that it was almost 70 outside.. There's no doubt that if this weather keeps up this season is going to start early, but I'm not even expecting to see any blacks for another few weeks around here.. The way things look right now, I'm planning on taking my vacation time the 3rd week of April.. Last year, my best week of hunting was from April 23nd - 30th..

    @Finder,

    You know you're a morel addict when you take your vacations around the season!

    I'll be doing the same. HAHA

    P.S. - hi @Vern! I saw your post buddy.

    Those are blacks in the photo. They will appear a very pale yellow to yellow tan in color. I know that sounds ate up but its true. Also keep in mind there are 2 different types of black morels, I say there is 3 or more. However im not a mycologist. I could be wrong, but I would say that report is bogus. However I have been told I was full of it on early finds too.

    Lol, 400 acres guy. I remember that scam a couple years ago. How long do I need to be a member of the website until I get to update my photo?

    I posted a reply with an interest in one of your micro mesh saks,
    but larger than the ones I purchased last time.

    12" x 24" micro mesh

    Price?

    Posted pics of my Louisville,KY find on Matherly's site because I can't figure out how to post pics here.
