    Found several large yellows past their prime yesterday in Bath Co. Looks like I am done for the season. Looking forward to chantrelles and chicken season. I wish you all the best. Happy hunting!

    Found 46 Thursday morning, one yesterday, and 16 today in oldham county. 20 of the 46 were those I’d left to grow and the rest were bonus! Some were on the smaller size so I’m hoping we have another week yet here. Good luck to everyone still hunting.

    Its coming to a close. I left half of these 4 days to grow and they didn't. I left about 30 in the woods and 1/4 to 1/3 of these were past their prime for sure. If we get some good rain I'll check 2 spots for a final flush. Somewhere between 400-500 for the year. It's been a pretty good season. Also found 2 bottles over 100 years 20190427_131013.jpg old.

    Found 64 more today in greenup county. A few half free believe it or not and they weren’t rotten. Mostly small yellows though. Found a lot more that were too far gone. Is anyone finding any big yellows along creeks? Or Apple trees? And any tips for someone who’s never hunted creeks? I’m at around 550 for the season and they’ve all be high up north northeast facing slopes

    The season appears to be over for me in Jefferson Co. and today was my final attempt. The big yellows I've found last few days are mostly past their prime or rotting. Overall my numbers were down, not much different than last year.

    Does all this rain have anyone else itching to look again? My best day ever was 5/3, 6 years ago. It was a 22lb day!

    Going tomorrow morning. I found fresh yellows 2 weeks ago but the rain went away and they got brittle fast. Going back out to look for some big greys that may have popped after all this late rain.

    My family owns a good portion of hilly wooded land with a lake and two creeks. Im interested in searching it for morels, ginger, and pawpaw. Any information is appreciated .

    I think you are probably too late for the morels in western KY. Check back in with us in early March next year and you’ll get some helpful tips from folks on this site.
