    Ian my last find was on May 3 I believe found 4 but they where to far gone to pick. Been out of town since just got back but I’m thinking I’ll give it one more shot Friday the 11th

    with all the shade from the trees now you might have some luck I hope you do. I would check along cold water running off the hill. the dirt just may still be cool enough right on the edge of those natural drainage channels.

    Thank you everybody who participated in our sarcastic Kentucky mushroom forum this year!

    This is the first time Kentucky actually had an active year here on Morels.com

    I hope you all come back here next year and keep sharing info/data with everybody.

    It was super helpful for some people who were about to throw in the towel early and ended up finding morels super late in the season.

    Please come back and hopefully the Kentucky forum will grow as large as some of the others I see on here.

    Everybody have a great Summer !

    First time poster, long time morel enthusiast, over 40 years. I was visiting a friend in the Lexington area the last week of April. We found ones and twos around dead ash, but nothing like I'm used to finding in MO, KS and Southern IA, but then we didn't find many good elms either. The ones we did, they just weren't there. What I found around here were late on the north banks. Cold snap got our southern slopes and I'm thinking it may have gotten yours too. Anyway, my buddy says they don't grow in numbers in western Kentucky. I'd like your boards opinion. I wouldn't mind giving western Kentucky another shot. Thanks.

    It's way too late up here as well, and too dry Vern. I meant next year. Thanks for the response, talk to you next spring.

    Has anyone hunted in Nelson county Kentucky? We purchased some property and I am excited to hunt and look around. I haven’t had any opportunity to do this since I was a kid.
