I’ve found about 6.5 lbs so far, but It’s been totally hit or miss. Checked 100 good trees and only about 5 of them had anything going on. Got lucky with one 4.5lb tree and then just a lot of unproductive walking.
So I'd love some advice! My husband and I have been (unsuccessfully) morel hunting for years. We occassionally find one or two, but in general we are terrible. I don't know if it is timing or what. We are exclusively on public land. We have read these forums and try to check the areas everyone talks about (elms, apple trees, etc). We still enjoy going just for kicks but we are trying to make it fun for our young kids as well, and if we don't have some luck they're going to boycott one of these days! Any advice? Thinking about taking them out somewhere this Friday or Saturday. We are around Sparta/Cashton/Wilton area. Thanks in advance!
