Nice find Mark. I may go out again today. You are at a lower elevation than me so maybe we got a few more days. No shortage of water.

Thank you sir! Yeah, my hunting has been around the 400-800’ elevation... not much height here, unless I head up Bull Run MT. But for the most part, just using topo maps to find areas, then just check em out. My buddy found some this morning, going over spots he hit last week. Still a few fresh ones showing up, but lower numbers now.

I think in total, we’re close to 600 morels for the season. Which is extremely good for the NOVA area.

I would not of expected NOVA to have such a long season. You started earlier than us here on the WV border. Glad you had such a productive season. Kudos!

Decent year in Loudoun County as well. After a couple of years of finding nothing (and figuring I was looking in vain) was nice to be rewarded in 2020. Yesterday’s haul Like others a mix of fresh and aged.

Late yesterday my buddy found a few, again kinda inner city locations... Falls Church, Vienna, Annandale areas.

i went out this morning to a local spot 5 min from my house. Produces every time.. but not many, as its a very small area... I can hunt the entire spot in 30 minutes. Found 7 big en’s. I have to say this is probably the end of the season now. What a fantastic year!!! Best I can remember here in NOVA.
