    So the color really doesn’t matter at all? It seems weird to see people pick the white gray and black ones as I’ve never seen those in the store.

    66A39A49-B1A0-4737-9CEC-1BC2FB2A7F25.jpeg I can’t even brag that I found the first morel of the season because my 14 year old son found the first one around Milwaukee. Ground still feels cold and air is still chilly. This is the latest start of the season that I can remember for quite some years. I would guess they are up in the lower half of the state but would be on the small size like the one we found. Looks like warmer temps next week. Happy hunting his weekend everyone.

    When I grew up we regularly ate that for dinner. I actually have some to cook up cause I still think it's pretty good.

    Glad to hear it is a slow start. I am in Ushuaia Argentina right now. No morels found here. Will be back in my spots next weekend. Expect a post of finds by Saturday morning.

    Hello all!
    I'm happy to have found this group. I moved back to WI after living on the west coast the past 10 years and am really glad to learn that the mushroom hunting here is just as good. Sadly I'm finding that a lot of the mushroom/plant relationships that I learned out west don't hold true here in the mid-west but, I'm hoping to find at least 1 stuffer this spring!

    I didn't see much of anything today in Marinette Co. around my solid bolete and chicken spots or the newer logging units. It's been chilly up here but definitely supposed to warm up this week

    IMG_20190510_193242500.jpg My first sighting, NW Waukesha County on my property.

    Way too small to harvest. I have two bountiful locations on my property, but only saw one small one. Hopefully things improve as it warms up this week.

    BINGO! The season has started in southern Wisconsin. I found these silvers(greys) in my red zones and they will be for breakfast mixed into scrambled eggs and green peppers. Here's my take on the season's start: S..... L..... O.....W. The soil temperatures are above 50 F but not by much. There is adequate moisture in the ground; however, the air temperature is below normal for this time of year. Looks like the week after Mother's Day will fire up. 002.JPG 007.JPG

    pikemen7, over a dozen in 15 minutes. If you have fish, I have the morels. Now we need someone with the wine. Where are you staking your claims Bro.?

    "air temperature is below normal for this time of year. Looks like the week after Mother's Day will fire up"
    I agree the air temp is relatively cool. I hope you're right about the season being late, instead of missing out totally this year.

    I like the way you think, I'd like to join you guys for dinner, but once you've got pike, morels, and wine I don't know what I'd add to cover admission.

    We all talk about seasonal indicators that it's about to start, can't remember which forum, but someone said they had an asparagus that told them they were a week late. Nothing worse than a rotten mother load. I'm about 50 miles due north of Indianapolis and we're at tail end of season. Here's some indicators you slept in too long:
    1) red buds have leaves
    2) tulip trees have dropped their blossoms
    3) tulips are just stems
    4) lilac flowers are browning up
    See all these in combination you'd better know your northern bottoms pretty well or you have a year to wait.

    My steak and eggs this morning. Missing morels. I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a morel today. Sorry I'm not gonna win any culinary awards for my plating abilities. 20190511_090457.jpg
