    Happy 2018 to all my fellow hunters!!!! I have already started to monitor our surrounding states forums, I usually start around Valentine's day.....
    The season cannot get here soon enough, however we have a looooong ways to go especially since we have not really had any snow this winter or precipitation. This week is going to make it really hard not to look but pointless at the moment. The trees are starting to bud, the robins are playing, and grass starting to turn:D.
    This season will bring a load of first for me as this will be my first year to hunt without my husband, as I lost him in a tragic vehicle accident November 10, 2017 (RIP My Love). However I will be teaming up with my stepdaughter and her boyfriend, which makes it that much more exciting. I hope with our newest guardian angel by our sides that the 2018 Season gets blown out of the park!!!
    Good luck to everyone, and may the Morel be with you all! Have fun and be safe

    Thank you Jean!!!!! I'm excited and can't wait. When my husband took me hunting the first time in 2009 he realized he created a monster, he would tell me I'm just like a hound dog .

    My husband isn’t intersted in hunting ANY mushrooms . But he doesn’t complain about eating any.
    If you are ever around my neck of the woods looks me up. I hunt all year long. Thank God for winter oysters.

    We had wanted to venture out and look for other shrooms but didn't want to risk it. We were pretty sure we found a HUGE shelf of chanterells or maybe oysters on year but we left them because we were not sure. What neck of the woods are you in? The kids and I are taking a trip down to Louisana and Arkansas in April and were going to scout around in Arkansas a bit while we were there . We are from the great land of OZ, Kansas that is!

    I wish you the best of luck as well and so sorry for your loss. I haven't seen any Robins here in KS/MO area, but the temps seem right. I missed last year altogether so I'm not waiting a minute after 50°. May the Morel be with you!

    around Council Grove you might try cottonwoods on the river or around the lake. Look for ones with dead in them. You do have some dead elm out that way to.

    I know exactly where Yellville is, that' where we honeymooned, at the Buffalo river lodge bed and breakfast. It was owned by a gal named Beth and her husband back in 2012 they were from Texas. And the kids and I are making a stop in Calico, and Mtn View and Mtn Home and of coarse imma take her to Yellville so she can see where we stayed in person! We will also be going to the Back Forty
