I did some research and scoured the forums for information before choosing a spot for my first morel foraging adventure this past Wednesday, and I lucked out! We came back with about a pound of fresh morels, and Nik (my housemate and incredible chef...) cooked me the most insanely delicious morel mushroom risotto for my birthday today! The meal was just out of this world. First time finding them, and first time eating them... and all around just the best experience. Thanks to everyone for posting your photos - it helped a lot!

2,000! Holy shit! You might be done foraging, but you'll be eating morels for months, I'm sure! What do you do with all of them - dry them? Sell them?

My second year seriously morel hunting and found 3 new spots, 150 morels in total (but might keep looking at higher elevation). Mostly elm, apples, and occasionally ash and tulip. Chanterelles are so abundant in my area but the appeal of the elusive morel keeps you coming back!

Lol so true Geo
Lol.... I sure know I do by this time of year. I think I am done. Over all, 10lbs on the season with a few new PG’s. I really expected a lot more out of my old spots this year given the epic weather. But unfortunately, not quite as bountiful as I had hoped. Grateful to get out none the less! Chanterelles’ here we come!!!

I concur as I expected the same, alas who knows!

I found a few early in the week in a couple new to me spots in Alleghany county, I think they were just popping down there when the weather decided to get dry and hot
