    Black,gray,yellow blacks first then gray then yellow this is basically true. That’s not to say all will be in the same place you may find blacks in one place but no yellows or any combination....all of them overlap some as soils warm at different times...If it stays warm (not hot) and wet the season should last awhile.. If we see 3 days in a row in the 80’s start thinking summer mushroom. Good luck to all

    Yeah gerbilrancher they should be going for a few weeks. I generally find them into the beginning of May. So plenty of time. I do alot of walking and find none as well lol. Still learning all the time I just enjoy being outdoors. Hope you track some down soon!

    almost stayed home today but with rain coming and Easter coming time is short. There is a spot close to me that warms up fast a perfect little micro climate that I can walk to. I'm glad I went...

    Found a few, figured rain was gonna beat them up if they weren’t picked.

    Also found a turtle as well 07E46996-6017-4916-A686-5CF3661EE783.jpeg 52C80143-0F01-47DE-9B4B-427DA3FF3AF9.jpeg 07E46996-6017-4916-A686-5CF3661EE783.jpeg 52C80143-0F01-47DE-9B4B-427DA3FF3AF9.jpeg 07E46996-6017-4916-A686-5CF3661EE783.jpeg 07E46996-6017-4916-A686-5CF3661EE783.jpeg 52C80143-0F01-47DE-9B4B-427DA3FF3AF9.jpeg

    Anyone think that hunting in the rain could lead to more morel sightings?

    It is supposed to rain tomorrow but I think it will be easier to spot them with the rain laying the leaf litter down.

    Caroline I personally like looking in or right after a good rain. I think they are easier to see also. Imo no time is a bad time to be mushroom hunting!

    Going out and looking leads to more morel sighting. It will help if the leaf litter is wet and down there is more color contrast. My favorite is wet ground sun at my back going up hill and lots of morels around....

    From my experience, blacks are very rare in this region. I only have one tiny spot that produces them.
