    Found eight this evening along the Rockcastle river in the Mt Victory area of Pulaski County. It was strange found around 5 more beyond picking and I was in here about a week ago and never saw them. FYI they where in an area of a lot of young sycamore and hemlock trees just above the flood plain here are some picks couple where a little dry

    Couldn’t agree more with you Vern! It took me four seasons and a lot of online research. This is forum a good starting point.

    Guys and Gals..myself and Nutsac got this Ky forum started from scratch this year and it has developed quite a following so far. one thing is missing though. when you ask for help or someone offers good advice that helps you...click the like button once in a while please. it tells that person that you got some good info and appreciated there help. it makes the poster feel good that a fellow shroomer got something out of it...but he wont know unless you let him know...Thanks, Vern

    Mitsy you have to get off that beaten path won’t find many or any at all where folks travel a lot but you might get lucky but get down in the woods look around. Sycamores are good so are ash and tulip poplars I usually hunt along creeks and rivers at the flood plain or just above it. The big yellow morels are often found in areas like that good luck and keep on hunting.

    That’s an awesome find can you describe the area you found in such as the trees near water bottom land etc. Finds like that make me want to stay in the woods 24/7

    I’m in Hart this morning checking my patches that grow the smaller greys and yellows and I guess they are a bust here this year. I have only found 1 in these patches this year so far. Guessing they may have froze just as they were getting ready to fruit.

    Anyone ever hunted in Mammoth Cave? If so is it a good area to look for shrooms? I know you can they have rules just didn't know if it was worth the drive
