    Got out for couple of hours yesterday. Prospected a few spots on new ground (ash/sycamore) in hills and creek bottom in Meramec valley with no success ,other than a couple of falsies. Rain from weekend did not seem to have hit in that area...much dryer than I expected. Hopefully get a good soaker soon for better hunting conditions this weekend.

    I've been jumping around my spots from St. Louis down to St. Gen and over toward Bonne Terre and just not finding much. Found a few dried up bitties that I had to soak to get back to life, but nothing great. I still have about a pound of dried morels from last year that I've been hesitant to use thinking they might have to last me. I'm hoping to head out 2 more times before next week. Those 75+ days they're predicting worry me...

    Nice work DirtyD. What area were you in? I'm in KC area and my buddy over in KCK found a couple dozen yellas yesterday. Thank God for the 1/2 inch of rain we got! It's going to be on, and I'll be out hunting the next 2 days. I'm debating if I should stick to my Independence area, or if I'd have better luck driving a bit south.

    Man, there ain’t nothing happening in Jefferson County that i can find!
    Spots that have produced well for over 20 years for me don’t have diddly. Well, I take that back. After 10 hours in the woods, I have found two morels. Two.
    I usually have at least a hundred by now.

    One here one there the next generation. If you had a patch last year - could be good? Lot of one and done racks the brain.

    Found about 120 today along the Missouri River in St Louis County. Just stuck to the field edges until I hit the jackpot, which was about 100 mushrooms popping out in a area of small trees with basically zero undergrowth. IMG_0731.JPG

    DO you have a picture of the leaf litter from where you found these or possibly know what type of trees you were in?
