You in Hazelwood?
I found a few in Hazelwood Friday. (the www part) youtu.be/UaPN4cWTLss
This was in Chesterfield, I mostly hunt around the Chesterfield and St Chuck areas along the MO River. Met a guy a few years ago who hunted up in the Hazelwood area though, even told his spot! Need to get up that way one of these days.
Is that the same spot you found the 120 in last year?
Picked about 50 mostly small already gave some away before last pic. The triple was ones I left to grow middle picture is one growing through a walnut shell. I know I left 100+ tiny ones in the woods to go back and get.
St.Louis or Jefferson County?
Metro east Madison county.
I wish I could get to get to that spot! The high water around the river kind of ruined that one for me this year. On the bright side I get to get out and hike mostly new places and hopefully find a new honey hole.
Went on a evening walk with the wife and dog out around Wildwood along the Meramec, wasn't really looking that hard but saw one sitting about 10 feet off the trail and then found quite a few more in the same area, there were some really small half free morels in the same area too that we left along with some small greys that we also left. Found some dryad's saddle along the same trail in a few different places, didn't pick much of it because I have never eaten it before but I am really excited to try it.
I'd say it's time to really get out there and do some serious hunting! Good luck everyone!
Went out to a new spot this evening in Jefferson County, found one tiny guy about an inch tall, honestly don't know how I spotted it. The area looks very promising. I was crossing a barbed wire fence on the walk out and would've stepped on this one if it weren't for my buddy. About 3" tall!
Found 130 today in west St Louis county, mostly around creek beds. Tried a spot in Jefferson County first and didn't find much except false morels and one half free, headed to a new spot with a lot of creek beds and they were everywhere! Found more false morels than I ever have, at least 10 with both spots combined. I let those ones be.
Yes, Sweet Bounty CanofVeggies! Way to find the spot!
Went to a proven spot in west St Louis Co on Friday and found 26 small ones...
Probably picked them a few days too early but on public ground I didn’t want
to chance it...I think next 2 weeks could be very good...
Picked 49 this morning, including 4 half-free. Also found 3 nice Dryad’s. Turns out Easter bunny brought more than just eggs this year!
Anyone finding anything fresh in good ole Jeffco? Found these 4 Friday. The 2 yellows were surprisingly fresh. Hoping to get one last hunt in this week. With any luck, this past weekends cooler weather and this weeks rain will pop some stragglers!
I think you still stand a chance of finding a few fresh ones. With all the rain, older ones will probably be moldy though. Went a couple of days ago and only kept about 50% of what we found. The others were too far gone so we covered them so they could help bring more next year. Also the ticks were super bad. Be sure to spray before you go!
