    Do you care if I share these pics? Definitely will make sure I make it clear they are not mine, but they are some of the coolest morel pics I have ever seen.

    Don’t forget about the sycamore ball/ seed pods whatever they are they trick me at times too.

    Hopefully the temps continue to cooperate as a lot of the rain previously forecast is being taken out. Highs near 80 Sunday and Monday and a brief shot of rain followed by cooler temps.

    Do not need it to go warm, dry and windy yet.

    "Hens" as in hen-of-the-woods? Kinda nutty and chewy and crunchy all at the same time. Just butter works. Garlic seals the deal.

    Never had hens but would like to try them. Found one once while deer hunting, looked down and was at base of tree. Know nothing about them other than looks so didn't mess with it. Haven't seen one there since.

    I've heard they don't bread and fry well, and I can't do sauteed mushrooms. I'm a texture freak lol

    Hey everyone, long time lurker (several years now in the spring). Looking forward to checking out my spots in Sangamon and Menard counties this weekend, though I think things won't start really showing until next weekend for them. That morel in the walnut shell is awesome!

    Just out of curiosity, are any of you chicks? I feel like I'm one of the few! lol :)

    Just assume that we're all women. Gender doesn't make a difference here.
