I seen on Facebook somebody found one near Branson in Taney county. Hoping it's true! It was on Missouri morel hunting page. I'm going to check my early spots Thursday after the rain. Crossing my fingers.
Couple of maps out there. this one shows several finds in both south MO and KS, but this one only shows a couple in MO. Of course, those are only reports, who knows what's been found and not reported (the majority probably).
I've seen a yellow dandelion and the redbuds are starting to come in, but I've yet to find anything in my area (Miami Co Ks).
I have family in Bates county and haven't heard anything from them yet.
The anticipation is incredible isn't it? I was watching some vids on youtube this morning and ended up skipping lunch and looking around in the woods near where I work. Fruitless, but fun.
Soil temps are plenty warm but some rain would really kick start the shroom popping, I'm thinking if the rain comes Thurs/Fri should be enough to get the Ol Dawg off the porch this weekend, good luck y'all. :-D
Checked the honey hole today in St.Charles county and didnt find anything. Mayapples are just starting to sprout about 2" out of the ground and dogwoods are beginning to bloom here, but ground was pretty damn dry. We'll see how things look after these 2 days of rain slated for us!
<span style="color: blue">Fulton, MO</span> (Callaway County) here. Went out today to check one of my spots that always produces early. Nothing <strong>yet</strong>. I did see a lot of May-apple's just coming up though so it will be a little bit yet. Getting excited... but this cold spell is going to slow things down.
