    Thanks for the tips guys! Checked a new area tonight and finally found some. All three on south facing slopes. First two were in the woods a bit.

    That's pretty sad for them, but at least you were able to enlighten them....

    one of my little honey holes that has consistently produced for the last 5 years. Ironically, as a kid decades ago, I played in this ravine...probably trampled down morels without knowing. (GB WI)

    this was a nice bundle that actually had 16 morels in it

    find the morels

    this tree is the producer....in a low flat spot, running stream 10 feet away, it has it's own micro climate in this ravine. One of my early season yellow producers. I look up before I look down.....;)

    there was about 8 under this tree last year as it was dying. This time 72 nice ones and about 8 broke off dried/rotted ones I saw. I never saw another human footprint in here......yet it is <100 yards from homes. Not easy access though, which is why lazy people don't get them LOL

    freeflow, lazy people get food stamps and buy the store mushrooms that are tasteless. I have fought through multiflora rose ( the thorns are like fish hooks), wild raspberry, prickly ash and russian olive ( I'd like to punch the guy who introduced that species) in that order of pain to get at morels. My shirts are tattered and so are my hands but it is worth it. Your pictures are inspiring - I'm heading out right now.

    Pain what is that? Buckthorn,prickly ash,spikes everywhere. Its just weakness leaving the body. Kindda gives you appreciation for easier spots! And I would also like to know where and who brought these thorns and why. Bucky
