    I love Trilliiums. I transplanted some from one of my spots to my yard, and they are just about to bloom!

    Picked 12 blacks Friday in a new spot in Edmonson county. 1st time to hunt that property. Added another 13 yellows/greys today in Hart while taking my grandson turkey hunting.

    Nothing today in Menifee county. Third time going out and still no luck. Unfortunately access to a few of my spots are closed due to covid-19. The hills of Menifee still may need a couple of warmer nights and hopefully some will pop. Anyone around Morehead having any luck yet?

    Excuse me? It's obvious you have a computer, so go on your state's DNR website and look for the regs! JEEZ! How much sense does that take? Know the regs BEFORE you go in! And beware of rangers who say you have to forfeit your morels. They could just be looking for a good meal on the cheap.

    I knew a guy who got "busted" for morel hunting where it was totally legal, and he knew it! But, there's a big, tall ranger, armed and threatening him with violence. What's he supposed to do? He made a show of handing the ranger his bag, but pulled it back at the last minute. He then squished every morel in that bag! Turned them all into mush! He then handed the bag back to the ranger saying, "Here you go! You can have them now!"

    He said if looks could kill, he'd be buried 60 foot deep!

    Waiting for that rain! Anyone find any this weekend during this mini-dry spell? Planning to go hunting during the peak of the rain storm to deter the apparent fellow hunter in my park spot (only park around the area not closed because of the virus, saw footprints on Friday and only 1 morel found when the previous pattern was ~10 each trip)? I did manage to find about 6 MASSIVE turkeys in one of my private spots, but brought the wrong tools for that job! Lol.

    My selected trails in Mammoth and in other popular nature areas were PACKED, so many people and absolutely nothing (not even other fungi).

    Here's a question: Is the shut down positive for more hunters to have the time to hunt, or negative because it causes a lot of hunters to have to search harder/farther/longer with their spots being closed/crowded/discovered? Food for thought! All apart of the hunt, in my opinion, but I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts!

    Hey there. I posted a few days ago that i had just found my first morel. I went back to the same general area with no luck a couple times. Is anyone else hunting in Oldham County, too early here for peak hunting? Also, I plan to go out again after our next good rain, will they be showing themselves a day or so after the rain hits, or should I wait a little longer? Thanks for any advice.

    I’m right down the road in Henry county! I’ve been out every other day this week and nothing! Hoping this rain coming in helps!

What was so cool is that we found 22 big yellows/greys all under 1 apple tree, 4 blacks of which 3 were very fresh, 9 half frees and 8 of the small grey/yellow variety. I don’t believe I have ever found all four of those varieties in the same day. My son and I took a walk on our 11 acres this afternoon checking around poplars and found 4 small yellows under 1 of the big poplars.
