My wife and I were talking about taking a June road trip over from NE to do some shroom hunting..would that be too late in the season?Hey guys sorry it been a couple week and have not been tracking!! Morels exsist in certain situations and have a direct connection to the trees they grow near, and certain disturbances cause an increase in flush of the fruiting body that we enjoy on the table. Some wold argue fire creates a unnatural flush of “burn area morels” but I dis agree. Most of my best spots in Iowa Missouri and Indiana have Dutch elm and ash bore problems. Here in Colorado we have burn areas, bark bettle, fir engravers and a few more insects that stress trees or kill them that in return force morels to fruit in force. Blizzard I don’t think my experience would be out of the norm if people looking knew what they were looking for and when. Granted there is a lot that goes into my hunts ( veg type, disturbance, aspect, elevation, timing and annual or local moisture but that’s why I advise to walk trails to start and take notes, because they are here and I have taught many people how to find them, some I knew and others I have met on trails that were simply not looking down as they walked. The burns are premo first year than taper off look for trees that are scorched but not dead, in wet or shaded or depression area. South facing aspects happen first and rap up quick(April ish), follwed by the ridge top, west and east slopes. These areas are little longer lasting 3-5 days once up for about a week( late April through May depends on elevation also.) north slopes(golden ticket) find all the right stuff and start stuffing your bags may-early June. Here is the algorithm (spelling anyone) for success.... (patience)location+timing+\_moisture+disturbance/knowedge*aspect=success. I live in the greater grand junction ish area and wold be willing to take a person or two out and share a little knowledge this spring.
