    They were given to me after they were soaked, I drained off the water and have them a Ziploc in the fridge right now. How long will they keep?

    Have been working 7 days/week (second shift) got out last Sat. and Sun. before work.
    Have friends that have small plots of trees that have produced very little in the past but walked into numbers, along with public land found about 90 large yellows between those two days.
    Going North this Friday morning, Reports along with pics show a lot large Blacks.
    I have only 3 more Mondays until, Go Time.

    Looks like the last couple good picking days in NWI, rain and hot will end it, been a great year, found close to 100 pounds, and provided morels for great restaurants to make yummy dishes. All in all it was a fantastic year and hope next year is the same.

    It depends on where you are going. I was really surprised how far along things were here when Wade, Robin and I hit Jackson and Ingham county. We were picking hundreds of Morchella diminutivas and finding old rotten morels of all types.

    Don't assume your spots are behind or you might end up a bit sorry like me.

    Just a heads up, I pick in Washtenaw and Jackson County and my spots are pretty much done. Picked a bunch of big blondes yesterday and most of them had been there a minute. Which tells me you should hit pretty decent farther north. My mom lives in Benzie county, that’s north west side just south of Traverse City and they are hitting great right now. My Dad just did a short trip up near Gaylord and it’s just getting going. They found mostly blacks and some small grays, that was yesterday. Haven’t heard from them yet today. Hope this helps all you hoosiers making the trek up this way Good luck!!

    Been done here in central for a couple weeks now. What a year... I know all you hardcore hunters are still killin it further north! If I didnt have too much on my plate with moving and looking for a new car (because I totaled mine being an idiot, texting pictures of my biggest find to my uncle) I would definitely be up there getting in on the action. But hey, as we inevitably say every season, "Maybe Next Year'

    Looking forward to an awesome year for summer shroomage too! Chanterelle season is just around the corner, and I have already spotted a nice cluster of chick o' the woods!

    Exciting stuff! Last year was total crap for rels AND chick's for me, so I'm def looking forward to satiating my deprived palate.

    If nobody has started a thread for summer shrooms by the time I start getting into chants I will go ahead and do that. Last 2 years, I found WAY more than I knew what to do with, so if anyone wants to buy any, I'm ur guy- as long as we dont have 3 weeks with no rain after memorial day... which seems highly unlikely (knock on wood)!

    Check back in mid June yall.
    Love, peace, and bacon grease
