    Now All of us ...Knowing that any prediction is just a Guess.. coupled with information and Our past seasons to compare it to...
    Still i Feel compelled to post that...
    from what i see and am Feeling is !!!
    This looks like the Making of a Very Normal Season for Everyone of Us
    from South and all the Way Northward
    as Our Progression Pop Pop Pops.
    but we just don't Really know, do we
    as for what is Certain;
    *The Mystery and Our Love of the Hunt
    Will Always Be....
    and in My Head and Heart I'm again and always, Waiting, Watching and Scouting and Hoping and Hunting & Hunting & Hunting, BELIEVEING and Knowing that one of these Seasons We Will all find Ourselves...
    Out There Standing right in the middle of the Biggest Popping FLUSH of Morels and Fungi
    that any of Us alive today have Ever seen..
    " The Hundred Year Hunt "
    " The Hundred Year Hunt "
    " The Hundred Year Hunt "
    i Remember My Great Grandad talking about it when i was just a Boy...
    There were So.. So Many Morels its all They ate for Months... Any Place a They would step in the woods..
    Morels Were Everywhere...
    i Believe and am sure this Same ..
    " Hundred Year Hunt "
    will happen again in Our Time....
    i Expect it.. i Have a Love for it..
    " I Won't Know if I Don't Go "
    So i keep Hunting....

    Winter is now long in the tooth with the first signs of spring showing in Northern Il. Crocus and daffodils are sending up shoots in the typical fashion. Too soon to predict if it's going to be an early or good year, but a little over a month from now we might have a better idea. Southern Illinois is roughly 3 weeks away (give or take) from their first morels, with Northern Illinois about 7 (or so) weeks away. We shall see...
