    That's the way it goes, isn't it?! Are you hunting on private land? I'm associating my lack of success with lack of private land access.

    Today was on my Hart county farm but I hunt both private and public land in Jefferson. I have owned the Hart county property for 21 years and today is the 1st time I have found a morel in or on the edge of a field on that property!

    @bexinthewoods Bex you need dress in all Stealth Realtree camo, mostly brown colors for this time of year..and you need a cool driver to drop you off along the Road .. spots like Creeks and hwy on/off ramps..You jump out, get in out of site and Hunt slowly cover the area very well
    keep your Cool Gather your Finds and call your driver to come get you.
    also; hide your bag full of Morels under your shirt or somehow as you come out of the woods and have a very disappointed look on you face..
    so if a car passing by sees you they won't know whats up...
    or come out Smiling Swinging your bag over your head Holler'n Out and Pointing
    THERE'S MORELS YONDER !!!
    you choice
    You Won't Know if You Don't Go !!!
    so Keep Hunting

    Picked 50 today in Hart. Some are showing some age now. Also pics of the 2 sets of twins I picked yesterday. Sentimental towards those FDFA3D26-1864-4EE9-97B5-05308154457E.jpeg since I have identical twin daughters and identical twin grandsons!

    Still hunting in Hart county, staying away from the city for now. Picked 20 blacks today. Several of these were really big. We may get 1 more week of picking the blacks. E4C8D351-BEF5-475C-B922-407FC1212138.jpeg B96BC61E-E907-4A2B-8A5F-C5A75EBB4BDB.jpeg
    Finished the day with 48. I’m shocked at how they have grown in size the past 2 days. Hoping tonight’s rain will bring one more flush of the blacks, but I have my doubts. It will definitely get the greys/yellows started in my areas. I noticed that the poplars are leafing out at the crowns of the trees. That is my indicator for the greys/yellows to start showing.

    20200327_165544.jpg 20200327_165548.jpg Adding some pics. I've read about false morels and I believe I've stumbled across a few today. Quite a bit larger, bright red, and a solid stem. Anyone familiar? Otherwise, no morels yet...I'm in Western KY but gonna try again tomorrow. Thanks! 20200327_165544.jpg 20200327_165548.jpg

    Still early in Madison, but we did find a lost cave entrance :) Now why would a Morel want to live around here?

    Thank you! I thought so. My first time seeing these but happy to know there's big difference between the 2. They're easy to differentiate!
