I would love to know how your morel hunting is going so PLEASE comment or post pictures. Happy Morel Hunting!!

    Finally after days of checking many known spots I finally came across these and they were in a location I don't always check. I can't believe I haven't found any in areas I've found many for a few years now. Excited I finally found some but surprised 3 hours of hunting and only 4 small burnt blondes found

    Cassy3. .Wade here... when I find. Those Exactly like in your pictures. ..
    its always proven to be a sign. ..to be patient and keep an eye for this to be a late popping area. .so keep checking there when the under growth gets heavier. .I believe you will find there late or last in the season

    Thanks for the advice Wade! I'm definitely going go be patient and make sure I return to this spot at the end of the season. From my experience with hunting morels I usually don't start seeing blondes until the season is about over and didn't know this sign..Thanks!!

    Wade, you might want to wear some blaze orange if you were planning on state game lands Friday and Saturday as there will be turkey hunters in the woods with you. Good luck if you go and let us know how you make out

    Actually Saturday I believe is the opening of spring gobbler. So you should be OK Friday.

    Today turned out to be a success!! From the rain last night and the sunshine I came across all sizes of blacks, greys and blondes. I went into a spot I've picked from before but went further in. They were scattered all threw the area. All of them picked today were from one area. I didn't even check other locations like I usually do. Around 80-100 all together.

    Cassy3 way to go! I wish I could find groups of them like that in Clfd. Co. I'm morelly jealous! It seems black morels mostly grow here, the grounds too acidic for greys & yellows, we don't have that limestone in the ground. I did manage to find one yellow morel last year, maybe there be more this year! ☺
