Been to my faithful black spot. Mothing yet. Hoping the 50 degree nights this week are the trigger. If not, might be my worst year ever.

Anybody finding whites yet?

They do find blacks and yellows there. Not sure how this year is going to shape up with the crazy weather pattern. Good luck.

Here in the Bristol area it has been an awful season and by far the worst my hunting partners and I have seen EVER! I keep telling my brother, and myself, that maybe...JUST MAYBE after this cold spell goes away and mother nature gets with it and we come out of these record and near record lows maybe then we'll start to see them pop up. I HOPE my brother isn't right when he says that the season is about over. I'm hoping it's just stunted them because it still feels like winter ??? Gah i hope so. I heard that down towards Knoxville area they're being found pretty good. Best of luck to ya and hope we have a better season than what it has been so far.

I live in Knoxville and I went to my honey hole where I would find 20 at a minimum and found 8 . I have hunted these things for a long time and that was the hardest I’ve ever hunted and only got 8. I don’t know what the deal is. I noticed to that usually when u find one u will usually find two or three more with it but not with these, these were all spread out

I have went twice more to a place I picked 101 last year. I found none. Seems Tennessee (east anyway) has been affected by the mojo of 2020. I am about to chalk it up as a huge loss for the 2021 season and prep for next year by seeking some new possible areas to search. But not quite yet. Back out tomorrow for one final scrounge. Wish me luck.

You need to develop more spots! You can't have just ONE spot! That does not work!

Ahhh, Shroomsearcher. I have several spots. Seven that I frequent based on annual timing. All are horrible this year. Hoping next year is better.

Well, that can happen. A couple of years ago I thought that things were setting up perfectly for a great season. Spent a lot of time, checked every spot I knew and checked some new places as well. Found exactly one small, dried up, pitiful morel! Don't understand it to this day!
