Figured should start a new thread for us god's country harvesters. First signs of life, ramps are a couple inches high. Should have first reports of blacks in a few days. Hope the pics work.

Can I ask what part of the state you're in? Or more importantly, what part of the state would be best for me to travel to for blacks? Im in SE Wi and from what I have heard they don't grow around here.

That is a Lacrosse Tribune in the photo, so safe to guess he is on the far West area of the state. And we do have blacks in WI, I find a few in S.Central. Will be out looking this weekend after 1/2 an inch of rain last night, and already picking some asparagus from my garden. Rhubarb is up about 5 inches or so too.

Thanks jean no disrespect. If you find one memorize the woods. Its different then greys and blondes. I have found a few growing with its cousins but not usually. Although nothing with mushys is usual. Sporadic nough said. Bucky

In La Crosse County, rookie, look around poplar for blacks. Bucky, Can't remeber the year, maybe 2012, found some April 2nd, that was earliest ever, and the ramp picks are from April 9, well large enough to harvest now.

Shroomtrooper, yes found the antler shed about 20 yards before I found the morels. Put them together for the picture, would've been cool to find the shed right on top of the morels. Still alot of ground to cover, hopefully can find some more sheds.

Found some more, figured better pick before this bad weather hits. Next week starting Tuesday should hopefully start the flush. These were starting to dry out and rust already.
