    87AABBA9-6953-439C-8F50-6C96EF72C1A8.jpeg The 15 I found north of me last Friday I went and looked at and pulled 44 out. They were small and stunted after this past weekends nights in the high 20s and other people were in woods looking to I so pulled em to throw in some soup. At 116 on the season. Going back down south Saturday I’ll post what i find. Good luck Ohio.

    I've been slackin on posting. Mainly because i been working 12 hour days. I'll take a pick of my haul so far this year. Haven't hit my yellow spots yet but I'd say I've found around 75-100 greys.

    I never use mesh bags. Neither does any of my family. My spots are loaded each year every year. I feel like not picking them too early has more to do with it than the mesh bags. Idk though I've see so many weird things when it comes to mushrooms though. Found over 300 baseball size and bigger yellows in a patch about 10 years ago in a spot. Haven't found a single one there since. I have other spots that always have some no matter what. I never uproot the mushrooms though I always just pinch them off at ground level.

    Brandon. That’s pretty sweet finding one right in the driveway! Regarding the mesh bags/sacks, I have always used them. I figure just walking through the woods with a mesh bag full of shrooms helps with dispersal of the spores to new areas. Maybe it doesn’t matter but I figure it can’t hurt

    We went out last Wed in Ross county and found 9 horse tails, nothing to brag about, mostly small. Going out here in a bit when the wife and daughter get around. Will post our findings. Good luck to the rest of my hunting buddies!

    Because 30 years ago I never found a morel with mold growing on it. When young my Grandfather always pulled them up then cut the bottom off with a knife. It never seemed to bother the amount coming on later. I always pinched them off and after years of doing so I noticed less and less morels and numerous ones started having some kind of white mold. Another thought is if you disturb the mycelium by pulling up the mushroom then the fungus seems to fruit more the next year as if it needed to produce more fruit for what had been lost.
