    Well this is the area I'm checking- there's a big gradient of plant growth because to the left of the picture is the creek. As you walk farther away, it's still pretty bare on the ground

    Looks like you have the right trees and plants in that area. If there's a creek nearby even better. Just have to keep checking. May pay off eventually it's still early so plenty of time. Supposed to be favorable weather for the next week so hopefully that will have them popping up soon. Good luck!

    On the boarrrrrd...just not yet in the pan. Found two very small greys and a black (first one). Southeast facing slope under a poplar that looked to be on its way out. There were also ash and dying elm in the area so I’m not exactly sure which tree these were associated though I’m liking the poplar. Fingers crossed they stay put and a few more pop over the next week so I can show a before and after. And in the pan shot!

    Any of the veterans in here, with the weather we have on tap in the coming days (which looks prime) how long you think it’ll take these puppies to become big dogs? Or at least pan worthy.

    I would think you could wait 3 days with the weather in the forecast maybe more. you then start thinking who else might find them bugs or people...I'm sorry what were the GPS coordinates again ????? Was this Baltimore co.?

    Took a friend to try out hunting the morels. Found quite a few half frees and a few nice black ones. Let him keep them to eat. Did take a couple pics. Last pic are the ones I found yesterday on my way home after work. Seems they are growing in my early spots. Hoping to find some grey ones here soon. Going to check those spots hopefully on Sunday.

    Welcome Trey Ridley! Nice Find! What was that found on? Is that a wall, embankment or dam of some sort?

    Took a walk in a new area after work. Wasn't an easy spot to get to but I was rewarded with a few. Definitely will be back to check it a little better when I have more time. Hopefully there are more where they came from. Fingers crossed

    Yeah I think this weekend or a little bit after is going to be perfect. The soil was pretty dry when I was out. In Balt. Co, in Elkridge along Rockburn/Patapsco.

    You're finding so many!! So tempted to drive back to Frederick now, lol. Unfortunately won't be there this weekend but hopefully after. Do you think they'll be out for a few more weeks or is it more of a just a week-long thing?
