    Woods are bare and couple weeks behind past couple years. Dad is in Maywood and been turkey hunting. Not found anything but he doesn’t look much. This weekend should be a start for morels in Hannibal area. Good luck

    Found a few tonight in St. Charles. Two singles around ashes and then an ash with four. One decent size, one little fresh guy and two a little bigger than the fresh around the one ash.

    One ridge over from last nights finds. These were on the edge of a dry creek bed where the leaves were built up. The last one was right under a tree hanging over the edge with roots exposed which was about 15 feet from the others. I’m not sure on the tree. It could have been what was hosting but I didn’t recognize any characteristics that I’ve been trying to focus on.

    Looks like they are getting big. I will need some Ray Charles with grass getting taller in my spot. Ticks have been terrible. Guessing they will be growing fast now with temps and moisture. Hoping season lasts another 2 weeks but latest I’ve ever found any was May 7

    You and me both....have only found 4 so far this year (last Thurs. (2) and Sat (another 2))....hoping the rain over the last couple of days will give me better luck tomorrow morning (meaning beating everyone else and the deer to them), since I'll be hunting public land.

    Found about 80 along some field edges at a MDC area in St Louis County, same place I went last Friday. I only picked 40. No 100+ patches of mushrooms this week, I would find between 3 and 8 mushrooms here and there and half of them were too overcooked, but there were still plenty of really good looking mushrooms!

    Anyone finding them in North Central MO.? I'm in Linn Co. and found 1 yesterday, our MDC areas have been getting hit hard apparently but I haven't heard of anyone finding bucketloads, just a dozen or fewer. What a weird season!

    Found another dozen under same elm on Fri. morning plus another 10 in surrounding area. Got home and my wife had found one large one in a big depression I have been filling with shredded leaves and walnut hulls and shells. Never been any there before.

    Finally on the board. Got to the farm in NEMO on Thursday. Found a few. Found quite a few Friday, Saturday, and today. All on River or stream banks around sycamore or birch. Lewis / Knox Counties. A few dry, mostly fresh. Just had a shower come through, it was really needed!
