    As you can see in the pictures above. My family and I have found a few over the past days. Still deep in the woods, heading back to southern Mississippi tomorrow. So no more mushrooms for us after the morning. It was a good vacation and we found mushrooms, still think next week will be hot for mushrooms in Carroll county Tennessee.

    My wife and I are brand new to morel foraging, and spent a few hours today at 3 different spots in Williamson county with no luck. We would love to join anyone on their hunts that know the area. I know that morel spots are jealously guarded, so I dont know how much luck I will have with this request lol.

    Tried a few new spots today in Williamson County and came up empty. Went back to normal spot and got 35 ( mix of blacks and yellows). Blacks were fully mature, while some of the yellows looked like they just popped. They're still out there!

    Morels are extremely hard to see especially blacks but when yellows come up which should be now they are much easier to see. I squat down and look all around me and always look behind u because might be under something and u couldn't see from the other angle Dying or no more the couple years dead elm trees best bet. or yellow poplar (tulip trees) but these alive better. Older forest and trees best. old apple orchards are great if not to old Good luck I'm In Sullivan co TN come hunt

    Just moved down to Tennessee from Northern Michigan last year. Has anyone ever had any luck in Rutherford County? And if so, would anyone be willing to point me in the right direction to some potential spots? I noticed a lot of the indicators are similar down here, just different species of trees to identify, do trilliums pop up down this way much?

    Found 8 yellows on Tuesday in Williamson County. Most seemed fresh.

    Jacob, yes I've seen trillium that were blooming...also the tulip poplar sprouts. Was told these are good indicators for start of morel season
