My good season keeps getting better. Some of the biggest I've ever found left a few dozen that were too far gone. Fairly open river bottom on the edge of a corn field, most were around dead elm

515! Nope 516! I found the worlds smallest morel. It was the last one in the forest! Don't come my way its all over sheesh!! I try for 200 per person in my family. Don't always get there, but this year I'm good. Been being humble and passing on the good fortune to the ones that won't always be here to help a guy out! Been just fine in my neck of da woods! I know elm and troop been killing it! I wish you two the best I know you've earned and work for it! I'm hoping some easy spots of mine will be there as I increase in age or time. Halllaaayy kreeeshhnaa kreeessshnaaa kreeeeshnnnaaa! Lmao don't know if anyone will catch that.! buckthornman!! Not coming home yet. O shit.....to be cont.....

I was hoping you where doing good up there bucky, weather was a little iffy at the start with the freeze and all. I lucked out on a few spots, mainly the April 22nd 34 degree find of 60. But the weather was there. My first find this year beat my whole last year total. Took my sister out shrooming gave her son who is a cook some, gave some to friends at work and made a Morel egg's benedicti but I tell you hard to beat a good old steak with morels fried in brown butter.I think every one on the site did pretty well. I am beat, my butt hurts from all the hills I climbed, but I sure feel good. Found a oyster today also. There still out there not in bunches but what you find will have some heft to them.

I am in Calumet county and have been looking for others in the area to hunt with. Would definitely come to FDL if you are going out anytime soon and are still looking for company! I am off until Wednesday so will be out either way.

Hey all...Just thought I would share a pic of my harvest yesterday. I left a whole lot there as they were smallish. All in one little spot that has been good to me the last few seasons. It was the first time I was able to get out. Glad I went. Now I have 12 days off to hit the woods. Fdl county. Always looking for fellow hunters to meet up. Have a great season!!

Can't remember her weight. I really like catchin walters eyes. Funny thing I was jiggin eyes out of 46ft of water in 2008 octoberish and wham damn musky swallowed my 15 inch walleye. So being bucky I reeled them both in! Short version of the story....bucky muskylips that must be the one you lay with in bed at night lol. Fun fish to catch, but id sure hate skinny dippen with em! After I caught that shark I mean musky I quit do figure 8's in the water naked...bucky

Most all of Em today were moldy/soggy/past prime, this cold wet really did a number on our final days of 2017 season. Found plenty of then today, but just left them be.
Time to put away the morels stick!
