    Those three nights close to 50 are a good sign. If we could see some 70 degree days mixed in it will accelerate things a bit.

    Talked to a friend who travels down to OK. to buy. His pickers are telling him its just getting going in Central to North Ok and to wait a few days . They have had a ton of rain to keep the ground cool, everything is mud, and most are still small. But with 80's coming in will go fast. You guys should be right on schedule as long as the weather stays seasonal.

    Get excited, that happened in Feb.
    I'm at the point now, when see and read about morels being found, i hyperventilate then pass out. They can't get here quick enough.

    Nice to see life returning, even from behind hermetically sealed glass...

    So far this weather has been wonderful. I hope with all my heart that these reports of a polar vortex to hit us next weekend are exaggerated. This year has been trying enough without old man winter rearing his ugly mug and freezing out the morel crop.

    I will be sacrificing a goat tonight to appease the Eldritch Spirits in hope that our harvest is bountiful. If you have any better suggestions I'm all ears.
    (When I say "goat" I actually mean a 6'er of Space Dust and a hand rolled item that rhymes with scoobie.)

    Lol, we definitely need to start seeing some warmer nights. I don’t see night time temps getting out of the 30’s until after April 6th and I’m really not a fan of cold temps and lots of rain for where I hunt.

    Everyone has their "indicators" as to when the season starts for them....and so do I, however, i know the day is fastly approaching when Jeremiah and I are play bickering because he is like a teenager on speed I swear it's the 12 pack of mountain dew everyday! We have a contest every year to see who finds the first morel while I'd say we are both good mushroom hunters we have different techniques that lead us to argue and bicker about where we r gonna hunt then he thinks its necessary to climb up n down every hill, mountain possible to get far back in the woods to find the shrooms no one else will find now...and I gotta agree to that because by time anyone gets to that spot they are going to be too tired to look I on the other hand move like a turtle, but usually land us right on em our season begins and ends with lots of funny stories to last the whole year sadly today still no morels but the false morels tell me it wont be long and I'll be finding that first shroom and then he an I can work as a team lol another great day in the woods though 20200326_181057.jpg 20200326_174345.jpg 20200326_164521.jpg

    Elm girl it sounds like Jeremiah and I have the same hunting methods lol. Of course I’m actually not that good at identifying trees (at least not as good as some hunters) so I got get really deep in the woods. Then ever year as I’m walking back to the car on the trail, there five feet away, are yellow sponge. Never fails
