    Checked some patches in Hart today that have been consistent producers for years. Nothing. It appeared that last weeks warm rains didn’t hit my farm .

    Hey Brandon, I've been out a couple times. Haven't seen anything yet, its pretty early. Soil temps and moisture levels (side of ridges) seem spot on. Maybe this week?

    Just think if you all had a foray like we did in Indiana and the MF'r was the main attraction. Trust me! Had I known the sick MF'r would still be in the woods of Brown county

    0A489323-F948-4E97-BBD9-5F1A9E3E4689.jpeg Went through my logs I kept of my morel hunts the past 7 years. Thought these #’s might be of interest to some of you. At the top, I listed the 3 most productive days of each season from 2012-2018. Below that I listed all of those days chronologically just to show a pattern. I also listed the date of my 1st find each of those seasons. Like many of you, I get out as soon as I think there is a chance of finding one. But many of those trips produce none or very few. Hope this helps to narrow down the window of time to hunt for the morels. These hunts have been in North central and Central KY.

    @Taylor Clayton looks like a wash type area. You near a river? I'm new to this and went out last year not finding a single shroom. I'm hopeful that this will be the year.

    Within a hundred yards or so of a creek. Washed out looking because it’s in a ditch

    0134D7E5-1F0A-4C32-9D86-57C4395B4CAF.jpeg Got away from the office early today and found 3 fresh blacks in Jefferson county. Looked like they popped after last night’s thunderstorm. Didn’t look in the heavy leaf litter fearing I would crush some hiding under the leaves. Also found someone’s pocket knife.

    My wife and I went back out to the area I found 3 on Monday. Bright sunny day and 2 sets of eyes and we didn't find anymore! Guess I was blessed to find those 1st 3. The upcoming Friday/Saturday rains should get the blacks to pop in most of KY. A buddy of mine found 34 more blacks in southern KY Monday.
