    See, I didn't have the first clue as to whether they were when I moved here.

    They come on differently up on the flat ground up north; we usually don't even start seeing the first traces until mid-April, and most of those are found on the edges of fields ringed by woodlands or by small creeks.

    Based on what I've read so far, I should be looking around deadfall oak and ash trees for now.

    What trees are you finding the blacks around, I have never found any blacks in Williamson county.. just curious.. maybe I am too conservative where I look?

Man I’m not looking forward to the hot summer but some consistent warm weather be pretty cool for a month. I did find these during the cold snap. Good luck everybody

    20180408_183645.jpg Found these and the Soil seemed to have a lot of sand in it. Checked a spot where I found several last year but didn't find even one. Soil had more clay in it and has stayed pretty wet. A few of the blacks were too far gone to pick.

    I realized today that my tree ID skills are nonexistent... I think they were mainly oak?

    Anyways, got about 40 in 2 hrs today.

    Going out today...I'll take some pics of the trees for you. It seemed to me the best patches were near fallen trees and/or there was a lot of ground cover (dead leaves). I'm definitely not the expert in these hunts though. My dad grew up in S Indiana hunting these things, and I'm going out with him again. Until recently, I had no clue that there were morels in middle TN

    Only finding and seeing what looks like pre-cold spell morels, sure hoping they aren't done fruiting for the year. :-(
