The bag is one that i had @nutsak make for me...love it.
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!

Did yippy have any luck?
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

Looks like a sunny day for northern Kentucky.

Get out and hit the woods early so the sun does get to the exposed morels.

We have had 4.5 days of shade/could rainy weather so they will be grown in areas that will catch a lot of sunshine today.

If you can't make it out until the evening, check in the areas behind the trees that are I the shadow of the tree. Even small saplings can provide enough shade for 1 nice morel to hide in.

I know I said go this weekend but if you have the time to do it I recommend going out today.

The weekend will also be productive but you may find that some of the mushrooms have burnt caps from sun exposure.

Good luck shroomers!

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.

View attachment 5144 Found a few today here in Floyd County
Hungry ;( This is my first season really looking.
beginning to think eating that first one someone else found may have been a mistake. Hopefully I'll either learn to find morels, or time will let me forget how good it tasted.
I'm in Shelby ky--suggestions? I did Deem Park walk over the river yesterday, and on my own I am failing. And don't dare to get too far off the trails. lol

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.
Great idea. I went to Deem Lake yesterday with a flower/frog person. Heard a frog trill and thought I'd learned enough Saturday, but still felt like I didn't know what I was doing, and flower friend wasn't really interested. These hikes are certainly helping me sleep--unfortunately it's been in the driver seat (at home parked) and in my chair in front of the tv. I'm exhausted. I really gotta build up my endurance. I have three fast moving, tiny and just as tall as me grandkids, and the summer camping trip is already planned. I gotta get my endurance back. If Vern is going out again this season... well, I would cross the river. I know where Ben's Bargain Barn is in Jeffersonville. Suddenly I am shy lol. Robin gave me enough confidence Saturday--I'd like to get one more hike in. Guess I wait for an invite. Or navigate this site and just ASK. thanks tom. hope the tick situation worked out for your dog. I have a WELT on my neck--one of them got pissed at removal techniques and it got messy. Can't imagine being covered. I guess spray him with a herbal dog approved repellent next time?

I am definitely awed/impressed, and sadly but truly, jealous in a good way because--
A) i've been lost in jungle jims twice and louisville doesn't have one
B) YOU FOUND AND ARE FEASTING ON MORELS!!!!
May my eyes learn the way of the morel hunt, may I be humble and hopeful and hungry for them till I find one, may the kindness of new friends help me reach that goal. Happy feasting, wishing you continued good eating.

I live in Louisville, Ky. I'm from WV. I went hunting today in Southern Indiana. (Floyds Knob) to be exact. Nothing, but 4 golf balls. I am going south tomorrow, to Shepardsville. Hopefully I can find some trees around here. Any suggestions near Louisville Ky. Struggling
