    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.

    That is awesome! We found all of our big yellows and greys under dead ash trees also and all of the blacks and small yellows/greys in poplar stands. Happy to hear that you guys are finding some good ones!

    A few were, yes. But everything I left was only a couple inches tall and very fresh sprouts.

    Only had time for a quick walk today behind the house... This was a donation trip anyway. The dryads were older than I like, but the older gentleman I was hunting for 20190422_122336_HDR.jpg likes them like that lol.

    He giggled like a kid for a while. I promised him every year I do well, I'll bring him some. He's about 80 and doesn't walk well anymore. Gained a lot of knowledge from him over the years.
