    D81C0E1D-C845-4855-AA2D-E90207519020.jpeg Found 87 this afternoon. 199 for the season & in all honesty, it’s just starting in NE Ky. The undergrowth is just now getting right in what I consider my good spots. I have found 140+ in about a 100 ft circle on top of a single ridge. Every day I go in this same spot & find dozens more that have popped since the day before. I’M LOVING IT!!!

    CA721DF9-DD69-4593-8C5E-1FBF6598FF4C.jpeg Found 27 keepers today same place as I found the forty I haven’t been in about a week. Many had already dried up wished I’d have went 4 or 5 days ago. Going to try a different area tomorrow.

    No, I had my 2 year old with me so I really couldnt concentrate that much on my surroundings. Going to try and get out there by myself next weekend. How about yourself?

    Keep on bringing the little one along - they grow up so fast, before ya know it they’ll be taking you out.
    Cherish the moments.

    4DA40273-5860-4638-BAFC-E04968E758A1.jpeg My wife and I met up with my son, his wife and 3 children on a morel Easter egg hunt. Found 93 total. 14 big yellows/greys, 66 of the smaller yellow/greys and 13 blacks and surprisingly a few of those were still fresh. All of these were found in Jefferson. Our best day of the season so far.

    Happy Easter! Found 43 mostly blondes around dead ash trees on east facing slopes in northern oldham county this evening. We took our dog on a run with the four wheeler around 7:30 this evening and I stopped to check the baby I left the other day and voila! I can’t wait to get back out there in the morning! We left about 25 to grow a bit more. The little ones picked were either fallen over.
