How early in the season have morels been found in northern Arkansas? I live in Marion County. I see on the Weather Channel app. that daytime temperatures will be in the 70's but the nights will be in the mid to high 40's in the weeks to come. Last year I found my first morel around the first week of April. The Arkansas Mycological Society sent their newsletter out already to begin this years forays. The first foray (in central Arkansas) being the weekend of March 19th if all goes well. Any input from personal experiences would be greatly appreciated as I was a week too late in many places I hunted last year. I did however crumble all the aged morels I did find and scattered them on the ground. All this rain forecasted for the next two weeks will surely be a blessing. Thank you all. Have a blessed day.
