Well, spent yesterday searching in several places around Frederick and though seeing lots of skunk cabbage and may apples coming up in addition to leaves popping on poplars still haven't seen hide nor hair. Visiting a friend in NoVA hiking, I kept an eye out just for yucks, but all I found was a box turtle who'd clearly just excavated himself from his hibernation burrow. Kinda cool that. I feel like we get some rain and things'll really start to pop

Nice. Found just one black, the first for this season. Interestingly, last year my first was on the 19th. This one was in a poplar grove though not really near one, growing up next to a thick grape vine. I found several last year under similar circumstances. How about yours?

I checked a spot near Patapsco that produced last year and I found 5 small (1.5 - 2.5'' tall) grey's. Every other spot I looked was zilch. That was 6 hours hiking on Saturday and another 3 hours walking around on private land I have permission to hunt on Sunday. Slow start? Seems those guys in Western Maryland are doing just fine though!

found a patch of about 15 yesterday right by where i park my truck. they were on a field edge that butts upto maulberry trees and an occasional box elder. i became excited that they were here then searched another 2 hours around the rest of the property and found no more.

Walking my dogs in my suburban neighborhood in Anne Arundel County I came across 12 big yellows growing under a box elder yesterday afternoon! Exciting little treat for the afternoon walk, normally I drive 30 min to an hour to go hunting. Its always nice when they pop up a block away from your house. Scoured the area further but found no more, seems like an isolated event. AA Co doesn't normally produce many morels for me.

Weird week. Tuesday, tried one place I loaded up with big yellows last year and found only a few. Tried a new spot a few miles away and loaded up on 64 yellows, then tried several nearby spots and zeroed. The next day, day a buddy found over 100 100 ft from the parking lot in a spot miles away. I met him and searched over 4 mi. all around that patch and besides that spot found nothing. Went to my best spot today and found three. Frustrating and feel like I'm running out of options and time before the season runs out
