    Fear the reaper... found these early this morning close together in an old orchard/nursery area poking up through the wet flattened leaves and fresher than they appear in photo. My other regular areas checked today in Jefferson County remain devoid of morels.

    Good luck today! I appreciate the special thanks but Vern has been the true cheerleader for this board. I just hope I don’t ever see him sporting a cheerleading skirt! I also appreciate everyone’s contributions. The sharing of the hunts not only offers encouragement for most of us but also helps to educate the newbies and also teach a few of us old dogs a few new tricks. I may try 1 last hunt tomorrow.

    Went back to check one of my spots in Louisville area today. Minimal success finding a few yellows, but only one that wasn't getting too soft and stinky.

    Went out today for a couple hours and found eight, about half are on their last legs but I'm going to eat them. I'm now up to 23, woo hoo! Not as many as I'd like but thankful to have found any this year.

    THAT'S A RAP...VERNO HAS LEFT THE BUILDING...
    picked up these remaining few after a very long hunt.
    I'm taking a few days rest before i decide if i have enough gas left in the tank for a trip north or not.
    Its been a tough season for me and many others in the southern half and for my good friends in Ky.
    I probably finished at about 60% of what i expected to do this year. Hay..its only ten more months and then i can do it all over just like i have for many,many years.....peace out VERN
