    Doodle, I also live in north Sumner County close to the TN/KY line. It's weird, I'm finding small dried up yellows where blacks are normally found. At 2 places, in the past, I find quite a few blacks, but, this year I've found nothing. One of the places could have been other shroomers, but not the other. I hope in the coming week (after these snow flurries) I'll do some serious yellow hunting.

    Those are Pheasants Backs also known as Dryad's Saddle.. yes they are edible..those look a bit old though and buggy..they will smell like watermelon rinds/ cucumber a bit. If your knife doesn't cut through easily it will be tough when cooked. Some dry and grind for a mushrooms powder for soups and gravy etc.

    Hello all, I'm on the Plateau in Tennessee. We just now finding a few Yellow Morels. Haven't found one on the tops but did find some Grey's earlier in the bottoms. We hoping that this next week is good for weather to help them. Its this time of the year that we find the yellows. Good luck everyone.
