    Nice blacks, congrats.
    I'm in middle TN, been out twice but normally don't see blacks. Waiting for yellows and grays.
    Thinking this weekend will be the start.
    Weather is finally getting consistent and rain on Thursday.

    Hi I am in Williamson County and have a great place to hunt. Myself and a couple others are planning to hunt next Tuesday and we would love for you to join us. I have seen loads of mayapples, trilliums, jack in the pulpits are starting to pop, plenty of elms, beech, poplars and hickories.

    Thanks for the offer, but I've got a small group that hits a few spots. Agree that the signs are out here in middle TN...good luck, post some pics of your finds.

    Been on a couple of recon trips in Sevier County. Think I have a few spots worthy of consideration. A little different situ than central Indiana, but I'm sure the basics still apply. Hopefully some pics Saturday. Good luck to all.

    I live in Cumberland County on the plateau. Going to check a couple of my spots today. Anyone else here on the plateau. Up here we do not have Elms....not sure why. But I have luck near streams

    Did a quick walk about today, no morels but I did get 2 nice oysters. Tomorrow I will get a few hours of uninterrupted mushroom hunting in. Hunting in Carroll county.

    Unfortunately I am out in the deep woods here and don't have much of a signal to upload pictures. I will try once I'm back to town and have better service.

    Yesterday, my wife and 2 of my kids found 8 morels, only picked 3 left the others to grow a bit longer. Looking forward to some rain and a bit cooler temps. The season is just starting here in Carroll county Tennessee. I think hunters will do great next week.

    I have been finding the morels only in valleys and bases of hills where there is a lot of moisture, organic matter, sand and May Apples. Just about every mushroom I found was within view of May Apples.

    We went out Thursday and saw oysters, devil buckets and lots of May apples so we'll keep checking. I'll post what we saw.
