    Went out last evening and found some big, beautiful morels and some teeny tiny little ticks. I mean they were literally the size of a pinhead. It's kind of amazing I even saw them. I was walking thru the tall grass and probably picked them up in there. I took a break to have some water and was sitting on a log when I noticed the smallest tick crawling on my jeans. I looked again and saw another. I only saw the two and maybe they were just baby ticks, but I hate to think of them being somewhere where I couldn't spot them! Talk about the heebie jeebies!!!
    Just the risks one takes when hunting morels.The big ones are up in the hills!
    Happy Hunting!

    Hey Shrooman, where in the hills are you finding them? Tops, bottoms, South slopes, North slopes? Tree types? Appreciate the info. We're going to try to do a little hill searching tomorrow.

    Seems like the river bottoms are about burned out. I fournd a few today- some nice big blondes- at Desoto but about half of them I found were dried out.
