How about after a half foot of snow? South facing steep south slopes? And I have always done much better on a waxing Gibbous personally. What's up Old Elm? You guys getting a normal winter up there? We were running way warm until this week. Some nice sub zero days and a layer of snow have things frosty now. Below zero through next Wed. it looks like. Won't most likely break any records, but the ground froze hard like it should. Nothing to you Northerners, but 10 below is cold down here On the other hand by mid April we could be 90 degrees with 60 percent humidity and no leaves on trees yet. Sweating buckets while picking morels usually means a short season.

Question here. Does anyone remember the year we had 70s and 80s for like 2 weeks in March, then it cooled down to below normal to normal temps in end of March April. How was morel season that year. Did they fruit early or normal time. I know the warm stretch we are getting in southern Wisconsin won't be like that. Starting this weekend highs low 60s then lows in the low to mid 40s and looks almost like that for the next 10 days after. You think that it could cause a few to pop early, but not a lot. Or just most likely fruit like a normal year. My 3rd year hunting so just curious. Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all and best of luck

I remember it. We had temps in the 80's in early March , and then it turned colder than normal. Long story short, I didn't find crap for morels that year! Correction. I found one, stunted, dried up specimen!

I'm heading to my land in Richland county this weekend. Will take a look around as it is early, but what fun it is being in the woods. Also siting in my new bow for the year.

Things are coming along good. Ramps are about 7-10 days early, so hope the morels follow soon.
I was scanning pictures from last year. We're 5-7 days ahead of last year. And we didn't have all this moisture last spring. Not where I live. Anywhoo ✌🏻😎 Bucky...
And just like that, productivity at work is going to grind to a halt for the next month. View attachment 37341 View attachment 37342 hopefully 6 weeks or more, but can't get too greedy. Early blacks are popping up.
Was that alone soldier?..
