    Man I see everyone finding them now... still nothing... guess I'm not in the right areas. Not good for a first year. Have no honey holes to hit up. Now I know why people keep there spots secret... Can't seem to find my own honey hole :(

    Yes sir, I'm from south central, Ky myself... as of yesterday, I came home with a bread sack full!!! Ranging from 2 inches to 6 inches tall... amazing! I thought the cold weather had killed them out, but, once again they've prevailed... absolutely the best hunt I've been on in years. I'm near the Green County and Taylor County area in case anyone is wondering... I wish everyone the best of luck for a great and prosperous season... get to hunting!!!

I was just wondering bc I'm goin to Breathitt co. this week end. just trying to get a idea of where to start at. sence I wont have much time there. I hit Harlan last weekend on creek bottoms and got nothing. then came back to London and found a good mess on the river by ash and sycamore trees.

    Hey @Paula-Joy ,I didn't know you were in Louisville, @vern is just across the river from you. Hit him up, I'm sure he wouldn't mind taking you out and showing you the ropes.

    Chad ol buddy, you just gotta hang in there and it will happen one day for ya. it almost always takes a couple of seasons to get a few spots together that you can keep going back to..

    Nice, well done. Went again in Central Ky but still nothing, but saw a lot of other mushrooms growing today that weren’t there over the weekend, so I think that is a promising sign!

    My granddaughter celebrated her 9th birthday tonight with family, crab legs, shrimp and fried morels. All her choices. She loves Pop’s fried morels and she can have all she wants!

    No morels so far. Went out for about 3 hours today. Looked under some tulip trees and elms nearby a creek I hike frequently. I'm not giving up though.
    On a side note: is it possible for the soil to be too wet? I believe much of the area I was hunting got flooded about a month ago
