First morels found in GA today (11th). Looks like somewhere near Macon, GA. With the warm and rain we should see some finds in Bham area soon. I will be checking my early spots Fri and Sun.

I went out yesterday. No luck.... I think we are one or two weeks out. I have never hunted in Alabama so I am not sure if I am going find anything. :(

Hello. I'm a recent transplant to the Moundville area from Idaho. Seems the Idaho morels are different than those in Bama, so I really appreciate all the friendly tips and advice offered here. I've been scouting the 100 acres I live on regularly since that first 80* day we had a month ago to no avail, YET. Still hoping and looking. Thanks and best of luck y'all.

@ Birmingham people, there were some Jefferson County controlled burns within the last 30 days. I'd wait till the weekend (heavy rain predicted thurs-fri) and check those locations.

Morel season recap. Bham Metro, the season seemed to be somewhat above average ( at least for me it seemed). Most of the morels appeared between March 20 and April 5. I did find early little greys Mar 16th at an early spot and a couple of fresh yellows Apr 9th at a lste spot. The heart of the season 3/20 thru 4/5 is about right at normal for our area. It was sleeting 3/5 and looked like wed have a late year; but it warmed right up and we had no major cold once they started. Looking forward to next year already. Happy Hunting to all.
