    Where should I be out looking, near water (river/creek), just in the woods in general?
    I appreciate any feedback.

    I'm in southern ks and it's usually about the end of my season by now. It's very dry here and not a single morel.

    Looked in Linn Co. in woods that are very consistent year in year out . Way too dry on the hillsides we quit hunting and caught a few farm pond crappie. So not a bad day, rain this weekend will help.

    I have a question for all you shroomers. does anyone know the effects it would have on the mushrooms when a favorite mushroom location gets burnt off? Looks like it burnt about 2 maybe 3 weeks ago by a controlled burn that got out of control. will that hurt the mushrooms and destroy the spores in the ground? anyone?.... anyone?

    From my experience with burnt areas it depends on when the area was burnt. If it is burnt enough in advance before the season then it will not have caused any damage and it puts nutrients back into the soil. I have found a lot of morels in burned areas before. It seems to be even better the year after they burn off an area. If they burned the area right before the season though then it could hurt that spot. We had an area we use to hunt and always found a lot but one year they burned it off just as the morels were coming up and it totally ruined the season there. We found maybe a hand full there and that was it that year. So if they just did it then it will probably hurt it but it would still be worth checking out. Hope that helps you out some.
