    Been going out looking the last couple days with no luck. Ground is just to dry. Going out again this evening to my honey spot. Will keep everyone posted with my findings.

    Went out for about 5 hours today, it's getting there, but nothing for me in the Chilli-Sparland area. I am looking, will break down and buy them if I have to...

    I was out today, at one of my early spots. Everything looks right and the ground temps are spot on for morels, all signs point to go. We just need a good rain. As far as the temps go next week that might not be a bad thing as long as we have a cooler than normal May; Which I don't think is unlikely considering the ridiculously cool summer we had last year. Times are changing peeps, gotta make the best of what you got. Still hoping for a good season!!!
