    We are MI hunters BUT have been hunting your gorgeous state the last couple of Aprils. 2017 was a bust but 2016 we found a couple hundred large whites in Bath County

    Oh man, due to all the rain, and flooding, I think this season is going to be super!!! I'm going to start looking this weekend for the heck of it. Our weather has been so unseasonably warm too. I feel they should start fruiting early, or at least by the first week of next month. I'll report back soon :)

    Hello to my friends and fellow KY shroomers! I pray we have a better season this year and continue to grow this forum. For those who are new, this truly is a GREAT resource filled with wonderful people that are always willing to help. Great group, great hobby and hopefully a great season. I look forward to sharing it with my morel people :). Vern- hope you're well buddy! Let's go get em' this year. Nutsak, I need to get your link for one of those kick-ass double mesh bags! Until next time, be blessed!

    Hey Brandon, you probably aren't finding any because your still in 2018. 2018 was a bad year! I'm putting 2018 in the rear view mirror. Come join us in the 2019 thread. Good luck this year.

    I'm in Laurel county going out to forage weekend, I absolutely am hooked on shrooms I buy them.to eat and really wanna find them this year. I have a son I wanna pass this art and skill down too any suggestions for my area would be extremely GRATEFUL and humbled for the help . Nobody around here will help you or learn you anything so I am learning on my own . Just dont want this to become a forgotten gift of nature trying to preserve our heritage of finding these treasures and eating and sharing with famiy.

    Welcome to the board Ryker! Jump over to the 2019 Kentucky Morel thread and read from the beginning of the thread. I believe you can pick up a few tips there that will apply to your mountain hunting. The blacks will be the only ones you will find this early in the season and I haven't heard of any reported finds in KY or TN yet. Soil temps have risen this past week and are really close to what we want to see. I plan on checking my Jefferson and Hart county patches this weekend.

    Go to YouTube, learn your land, the guy is a wealth of knowledge. I had the same problem as you learning to hunt . This guy will save you 5yrs on your own. Good luck friend

    The Mushroom Festival in Irvine, KY is great! I've been going since I moved to KY in 1999. Don't plan on buying morals there unless you're rich though. An oz can go for $50. I live in Clark County and have been out moral hunting for the last 20 yrs and haven't found one! How can that be when the Mushroom Festival is only 15-20 miles away? ROFL
