They are what is call arrow heads. No yellows or grays yet. Found them behind my house in a little thicket of Japanese honeysuckleWhere are you located Jason and what type of area did you find them in. We've had frost on the windshield the last three mornings here in eastern middle Tennessee so you've found them in the cold.
Creek bottom in a southern facing "holler"...well draining area, lots of Sycamore trees around the drip line of the bigger ones. I think its a bit early, we got a warm rain and that should motivate some growth. I went out today in a different area and found some fresh Pheasants tails, dryad saddles but no morels.Nice job John! What kind of area?
The one that i found is in a very similar spot.....under the canopy of a large sycamore on the south facing slope of a wet weather creek. It's been a reliable hunting spot over the last couple of years for me, and the first place i look.Creek bottom in a southern facing "holler"...well draining area, lots of Sycamore trees around the drip line of the bigger ones.

Dang good eyes to spot that one! congrats!Well Fellow Shroomers, I found my first black of the year. Didn't have much time that I hit the woods very late yesterday after work and got dark on me. Found in my main honey hole here in Cumberland county, Turkey season starts on Saturday so we always turkey hunt and find Morels. Nothing like Wild Turkey and morels cooking in a cast Iron skillet over a camp fire.
Thank you Brother, I appreciate the info.In KY I never find the big yellow/greys in the same environment that I find the blacks. However, I do find the smaller yellow/greys/white in the exact environments (hickory/poplar woods) as the blacks just as the blacks start to peter out. Usually on east or north facing hillsides or ridgetops.
Oh no they’re the real deal. The false morels are less symmetrical and more reddish. Been hunting morels for about 40 years...these are mostly greys but did find a surprisingly nice sized yellow (not pictured) a little after these. I think we are at the start of a good shrooming season.
As a tip, you can for sure tell a false model once you cut it in half. The real ones will have a hollow core whereas the false ones will be much more stem filled and meaty in the middle.
