    Hi. Just curious if anyone has experience with finding Black Morels in Kansas? Or more specific, the N.E. part of the state? Dont think I have really ever seen any, but maybe just havent targeted them specifically.
    I'm getting geared up for the season in the Lawrence area (yellows/whites), I get the feeling its going to be a good one, 2016 was very disappointing here, and last year was better but no real killer patches, and many of my go to spots were not hitting. Did find some new spots though, which is always awesome.
    Thanks, and happy hunting

    Right on, seems like they ought to grow up here too. I do know a lot of Morel hunters here though, and no one has ever brought up the subject.
    On a related note, lots of rains in the forecast up here. Should be perfect timing, the anticipation is really killing me!

    Ive only ever found them on hillsides around lakes in ks. Far and few in between. Not something I set out to get but always in the early stages.

    Have you found any yet? I've looked several times without any luck.

    Are these blacks or just large greys? They were in a spot we've hunted for years but I've never found any quite this color before. 20180428_110817.jpg
