I have the next two days off so I’m going to as always put the boots to the ground and if I don’t find any I’ll still have the time with nature we will see if there’s anything left out there in my stomping grounds 👍

100 morels, found May 1, by 3 people basically in one very steep area midslope NW IL (in view of Mississippi River). After couple hours of searching all we were saying is "it is way too dry". Then surprised to find these mid slope about 11:30am sun shining on the area. Lighting up the morels. They seemed fresh but a little on dry side.

Hello All,

New to the hunt but I been out in the SW side of cook county looking for Morels and...zilch, nada! I am hopeful and will continue the search.

I would like to add that I found my first and only Morel 2 years ago near the west loop (Chicago) under a dogwood with fresh mulch.

It would appear the obese female is exercising her vocal cords a tad early this season.
