I live in Ararat, VA. Grew up in Wyoming county, WV. Hunted mollymoochers for 16 years in WV and Roanoke, VA before moving to Patrick county, VA. I can't seem to find any here. Alot if old farmers tell me the soil here is nit right for them to grow here. Any suggestions?? Morel lover forever
Wade here... So very Happy to have you Joining us!!
My home area is Monroe County Indiana
where I've Morel Hunted for 54 years now
i can not advise you about your local soils.. Other than to say; i doubt that all of your areas soils are unable to sustain Morels..
i have learned Morels will grow Wherever they want to..and i still find Myself surprised when i find them some where i never thought i would.. and likewise find Zero..where it seemed they should surely be plentiful..
Here is a picture near Bristle Tennessee
when you see Red buds this Brilliant, its Time to pull over and start looking.. Everywhere..and around Sycamore and Elm trees..
i Think you will find yourself Happily surprised with what folks just driving by have No idea of...
One thing is sure..
The Mystery will always be..
You won't know if You don't Go!
Enjoy the Hunt
Hi Patricia, I took a quick look at Patrick co.and you seem to have the same problem I have acidic soils. I’m in Maryland but share the same problem. We need to find more alkaline soils that the morels prefer. I use the USDA soil survey maps to help with this. You can get some pH test results there. If you don’t want to do that,as a general rule you will find a higher pH along creeks and rivers. Since you have hunted morels before I’m sure you know trees matter too... I hope this helps and best of luck..
Ararat, Virginia. 20 minutes from Mount Airy, NC.
