Went out Monday and got about 80 morels, weighing in at just under 4.75lbs, all under a perfectly ripe tree.
Kept a pound and sold the rest to this butcher shop I work at.


Went out Tuesday and found 24 or so, weighing in at just over a pound.

Got some great pictures but need to upload em, I

I agree with Rat about the tree. It hurts one last big flush and there gone.........If you scored a bunch it will probably be the last time.

Ya I was planning on going back next year, so I took the ones that were a bit moldy, crushed them up and sprinkled them all over the areas I found them. There were a few ravines that had major flood action and only one had all the mushrooms... Im thinking they'll be back next year. What's your reasoning @buckthornman behind why they wouldn't come back?
