Look for cedars now in mixed woods. My arms are all cut up from running into the thickest crap there is. Thats where I'm finding them. Im 6'2" so I just run in like a bull in a china closet with one thing on my mind....morels. Maybe thats why I look like my avatar...lol, kidding. Dont be afraid of those ticks, copperheads, feral hogs....those morels need help.
