If anyone is interested in buying or selling morels please let me know. Here is a great club I joined last year that participates in local forays. In April we will be going on a morel hunt. http://mawdc.org/

Can someone help me to find morels? I live in PG county. I can give you ride to the park or tell me where I can hunt them? I don't know where they grow in Maryland. Thanks in advance

jayhash - PG County. I'm in Washington County. Sorry, but it's pretty much fact that a seasoned morel hunter will not take you on a morel hunt in any woods they hunt. I've hunted for 30+ years and still don't know everything there is to know (and never will). The only advice I can give is to do your research and then look for a morel hunting spot.

I've a few "lessons" that I've tried, learned, and found over time, about what to look for in this area.
You can read some of them on my blog: Visit DW's Blog
I wrote a little something back in 2012 on Tulip Poplars and black morel patches.

Good luck!

jayhash- morels are literally everywhere in MD. From the Eastern Shore to Garrett County. Don't go chasing leads far away, that's way too time consuming. Read up on it, learn some of the key tree species, find some public woods near you, and put the time in from mid-April to mid-May. If you spend enough time in the woods looking you will find at least a few. And year, as stated above mawdc.org is a great group of people who know a ton about all sorts of mushrooms. I wish I lived closer so I could attend their meetings.

jay hash - check the old forum boards. A lot of hints and good information there. Here is an old article - https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/lifestyle/2006/09/08/unearthing-the-mystery-of-mushrooms/a0130c16-4fa5-49fb-9840-931d66145b02/?utm_term=.e514d57b4df8. do some online research.

Can't wait for the season to get going. Checked a couple of my early season spots. Nothing yet here in Frederick county. Hopefully some warm weather will get them popping! Good luck to all

Found a few black ones this evening after work. Public spot that gets hit pretty hard so definitely encouraging. Hopefully I can get out this Sunday if not I definitely plan on hitting it hard next weekend.

I went out with a friend and my wife... both found a lot more than I did. About 30 all together in close to Martin's Mountain. I'm going to check out Central MD tomorrow. I'll try to post if I find anything. Sims- what part of OHIO are you familiar with? I might be able to help you out in MD.
