I'm in Bethlehem and I haven't been out, I didn't know if they even grew around here because I'm from Ohio. I am going to look around here and Bucks county today, then head to Virginia and look the next few days.

checked my early spot last weekend and nothing yet. Cold spring is holding us back. Ground cover doesn't look even close yet. Hunting in Solebury Bucks County. Found my first ones here in 1986 and found them every year since.

I've been poking around in some spots in southern Bucks that I know produce a flush every year. Nothing yet. Keeping my fingers crossed for this weekend. I looked over in Mercer County NJ last weekend, and all I found were ramps, which is fine, but no morels.

Found six grays in one of my early spots today outside of quakertown. Just poking through the leaves just need some rain and I think it's gonna be on. Gonna leave them to grow.

Hey redtop,
May 10th is a little late. I usually start looking for um around April 20th. Usually, April 20th the morels are still a little small but once you find a spot you can hit that spot later.

I didn't find any morels the first 2 years that I started hunting. I just put in tons of hiking and every year I find some patches and expand my range.

I am getting excited for the season to start. With all the cold weather we're getting it looks like the start late unless we start getting some seasonable weather.

With these temps coming and the rain in the forecast it should start! I was out this weekend and it seems to dry, it was like walking on potato chips! If an area is partially lodged out in the same year before the morel season will the morels be stunted or will they be popping everywhere where the loging machines were traveling! This is the first time I came across this situation looking for morels. I know for certain other varieties that the shrooms grow like crazy after it’s lodged out but uncertain about morels. Any help would be appreciated.

The logging situation should be interesting. I've never had the opportunity to check it out. Missed the parks in the area are logging out all the ash trees.

One of my best spots the area is closed for logging. It will be interesting to see how it affects one of my best spots.

I am wondering if it's going to make my spot better or worse.
