WOW..i am down south in Ind. with my mouth watering pal. next season i will be hunting up north for sure..View attachment 2008 View attachment 2009 I also have been hunting for close to 20 years and have rarely found them bigger than my hand. Found 5 monster yellows near one tree. This is how big they can get when your on private land and the weather cooperates. 45 minutes north of Milwaukee and found yesterday.
All I'm seeing is Ones and Twenties...Anybody ever find Fives, Tens, Fifties or Hundreds? Season is over in Eau Claire. I don't want to say it was a bad season because its always beautiful being out inthewild, but my morel gathering is being rated 2.5 outta 10.View attachment 2008 View attachment 2009 I also have been hunting for close to 20 years and have rarely found them bigger than my hand.

Elmgirl, I have never hunted morels in Wisconsin, but about 5 years ago I went backpacling in the boundary waters. On the way I stopped in chaquemeqon-Nicole forest. An area called the rainbow lake wilderness. It's close to Drummond Wisconsin. Beautiful area. I hiked in about a mile on the north country trail and spent the night. Don't know about morels, but it's a really nice area and I'm sure there's some kind of fungus in there you would like. Just a suggestion. Have a good trip.does anyone know about northern wisconsin up near the chaquemeqon-nicolet or the area around ottawa national forest how long their morel season lasts? I contacted a few different dnr offices up that way and got some helpful info and some not so helpful... lets see one dnr officer told me hes been trying to hunt morels up that way for four years and has yet to locate any, i find that hard to believe. i talked to another near ashland that told me they had started fruiting a week or so ago I have found morels in northern wisconsin as late as june 1st one year, just wondering if anyone has any insight on this years?
