Nick buddy we don't care about getting on video. We just love to pick morels, lots of morels if at all possible. Some of these folks have been doing this their entire lives as a family tradition. Some of us have picked morels in almost all the states within driving distance and then some. And we all did it just the way arkanshrooms said, you just got to roll the dice and go look. Heck sometimes the unknown is half the fun. I gave you a couple of my thoughts back on the Mo. forum, sure hope you pick and film boxes of them.

Understood. Not looking for anyone’s honey hole but just a general location. And the 1/4 will end up being 65% of all morels found that day. I’m saying we split 50/50 and then I’ll give another 25% of my collection to the guide so a total of 65%. And I’m just trying to make sure I have content for the show so I’m not looking for a honey hole. But anyways I have plotted out some areas using a topo but since I’ve never hunted Arkansas I’ll be starting at scratch. Just trying to ensure I have video content. I have a couple small holes I take friends to to show them what to look for and I keep my honey for myself. So any suggestions on state parks up north AR? That was the basis for my post
50% and 25% for a total of 65%, Nick do you math much?

Dang math, it even screws up morel posts. Just do the new math like our gov., need money just print some. We will let the future generations worry about it. Oh I forgot, they want everything free anyway. Sorry no morels yet and getting bored. Believe me you don't want to see my math. But at least I can balance a budget.

So close... yet so far away....
I was already picking this time last year.. The only thing I picked today were the ticks off my jeans (I think I am a tick magnet)... Trout lilies (aka dogtooth violets) are blooming. The leaves make for a sweet tasty treat.
This is the only way I know to completely avoid the tick issue.

Dang Old Elm, that's only the skeeter born stuff. They need to list all the tick stuff too! Old Elm knows, that is the good stuff. If I could drink it so my pores would leak it I would. I coat boots, socks, and everything up. No ticks. Some places are impossible to hunt without it. Get sucked dry and get who knows what. Plus you carry the dang things into your car and home/family. Used to make my own solution from concentrate, which was probably stupid, but I hate ticks. Jbarr, where are you at in ARk? You ever hunt the Crowley Ridge area on your east side, or know anyone who has?

I am in Marion County. Unfortunantly I have not & do not know anyone who has. Looking at the map, Crowley Ridge is a pretty vast area. I don’t travel much except to go on forays with AMS.

thanks Jbarr, I just like to find new places north or south of me and I read some geologic stuff about the Crowley's Ridge soil that got me interested in its morel possibilities. We have a little of it in SE Mo., but you are right most of it is in Ark. Those winged elm I think you mentioned, do they die from the blight like the other elm species? We do not have those up here. Use that stuff Old Elm suggested, the aerosol spray variety is a little easier to apply than the pump type for convenience. No more ticks.

Went to 3 spots around Hector where I found mushrooms last year. Nothing. Either it is too early or someone found my spots. I choose to believe it is too early.

-checked last years posts. Apparently I did not find shrooms at Hector until April 8 in 2018. So there is hope.

--Jbarr... I totally forgot to send my $ to AMS this year. So I guess I will miss the foray. That's a bummer as I enjoyed it last year near Dover. Think I will send $ now so I get the newsletters.

Yes it’s me! Lol
Doing great, thank you. How are you?
I'm going a bit stir crazy waiting for winter to end. It snowed today. I'm thinking of making a run down to Arkansas to see family the end of April. Wish I could go now but work prevents that from happening.

Have you found any morels yet? How is the season progressing from last year? Do you still have that beautiful log home you were building? I'm soooo nosy.

Every time I see a lime colored Jeep I think about you.

Well today I went out after church and found a few. I was excited and kind of sad as well. Some of them were already dried up, some were already moldy. I checked these spots two weeks ago and they weren’t up yet. Kind of odd. I was so hoping with all the rain we have gotten in the past few months that this season would have been great. I picked what I could, crumbled up what I couldn’t, left maybe 10 total in 3 spots that “might” grow a little bigger. MAYBE more will fruit, guess I will just have to wait and see. Shouldn’t be to bummed, some is always better than none. My blacks haven’t fruited at all... And yes I still live in that house and drive that lime green jeep lol. IMO last year was better but who knows, we have some 70/50 degree days coming, anything is possible. Give me a shout when you head this way. I have access to 1000+ acres.

Now would be a good time to send your dues being we haven’t had our morel foray yet.
