    I went out looking again last night in the same woods where I found the pheasant's backs with my son. We looked for about an hour and the storm was rolling in so we started to head back. That is when we stumbled upon our first morels of the year. The sad part was that I saw about 30 stems of ones that were picked so out newly found spot is no secret even though it is pretty remote.

    Cary, ay? I'm dying to know where you go. I doubt I will so I will just keep my eyes peeled for those elms. I thought I was on to a great spot in Cary but didn't find anything. Maybe the area needs a few days. Do you guys think that thick undergrowth disrupts the growth of mushrooms?

    I went back out to my spot near Elgin. I only found three but they were huge. I see the most bizarre things sometimes out there. I'm guessing it's end of the season since these are so large and I'm finding so few.
