Time to start scouting.
Wishing all a prolific/bountiful season for spring 2020.
Dang ice auger is getting cranky, time to start thinking spring!!
Woo Man...i know you are loving that out their ice fishing.. @Old Elm.
An April forage party.
Only a couple more months, been a very strange winter in south central Wisconsin way below snow average here in janesville area, I hope it doesn't affect the spring hunt!! Last year was my 1st year going out had a blast! Found maybe 5 lbs total not much for some of ya. But did find some spots that had a lot of end of year ones that were starting to melt or burn. But saw Alabama is starting to find them might gave to take a vacation south soon Lol. Good luck to everyone
i love this old picture of who we are and where we came from
Thank You for posting it @Old Elm
Whoa, whoa, whoa, . . . Haven't even started tapping trees yet, want to get at least a good month of sapping before even starting to itch for morels. Plenty of ice fishing yet also to make the most of. Need to enjoy each season for what it provides us. But dang it, now I'm going to be seeing shrooms in my dreams tonight. Thanks alot Old Elm
Twisted, I couldn’t agree more about enjoying the season’s one at a time, however I’m blaming Wade. He called & got this O’le Badger all stirred up a few weeks ago - held off posting a new 2020 thread as long as I could, then decide’d to share the pain.
We are All gonna be standing right in the middle of um... having fun !
Now think I said earlier that last year was my 1st year and had a long winter. This winter has been very strange especially by the janesville area. Normally we have at least a foot for frost line this year really nothing, we had a rain storm in January where nightcrawlers were popping up everywhere. How much does that affect the ground warming up? And with the way below normal snow we had how much does it affect the moister, cause fo know both play a big part. After tomorrow we most likely won't have any snow left on the ground pretty bare already. Yes we have had quite a bit of rain this year way more then any winter I remember. I know we still got about 2 months before the hunt starts 1 can hope maybe soon by a week or 2 Lol. But I can never have enough info on how to be better at hunting morels. Any thoughts would be much appreciated!! Thanks
Welcome to the group & have an awesome season.
We finally tapped yesterday (March 1) in southern Michigan. It ran all night. I had a lot of heavy bags to dump this morning.

Same to you!
Found 10lbs of morels today here in East Texas. Rubbing it in my brothers face as he moved to Madison area about a year ago. LOL.
happy new year folks!. crazy times in our society indeed, but Morels are Essential !. I'm ready..... xoxo
Got a question for you more experienced morel hunters! Where is a good area to look for black morels? Same area you find grey and yellows? Or around different types of forage? Just curious cause do know they come up a couple weeks before the grey and yellows and with this nice weather we are having in southern Wisconsin we might start finding them in the next week or so..... maybe!!
Scouting for morel trees today in 64 degree heat in local park. I noticed a couple small bags hanging in the brush and I ustta hate on these people for doing that, but I'm thinking I'm warming up to liking them for picking up So I don't step in it. I don't think they take their fish for walks, so I'm only assuming the prize within. Picture from last year.
Ramps / Leeks starting to sprout. Morels to follow. Eau Claire County
Not ramps, likely Lilly of the Valley.
