Thanks Blizzard! This will be super helpful this year. I cant post links yet, but I have been tracking soil temps with greencastonline.com. No idea how accurate it is but you can at least get an idea. Does anyone have a better resource for ground temperatures?

Sure, ground temperature readings are commonly used. I found this study, namyco.org/is_it_time_for_morels_yet, that looked at predicting morel appearances by looking at ambient and ground temperatures and precipitation. Although the study was done in the Midwest, I thought it still might be a good indicator, especially for chasing the morels up into the high country as it gets warmer.
I have found the NRCS has many SCAN, soil climate analysis network, stations setup around the nation. Most stations have soil temperature reading down to 40". The soil temperature reading are updated daily and go back 20 years, not that you need that much data.

I'm a new Colorado resident (Woodland/Springs area) originally from Ohio and I am looking forward to hunting the new terrain! Any tips on spotting good hunting locations?
