    I will be in the Gatlinburg area this weekend. Can anyone provide any tips on types of areas to hunt for the blacks in the mountains. I find them in KY in areas of poplar/hickory typically on N and E facing slopes and on ridge tops. That warm rain last night should have them popping.

    Searched a promising looking area today for about an hour today outside of Gatlinburg but no luck.

    We live just east of Gatlinburg. The weather the past several days is shaping up beautifully for morel season. Last night we got some really good rains, and the temps are holding at night. We went out today and did some hunting with no luck but I think its any day now they will start. I just finally joined this site to be able to post but I am in and constantly searching the net in different groups this time of year to see about East Tennessee and haven't yet seen any evidence they are here just yet, but really picking up considerably west of us in the state. Good luck ~ hopefully we'll see a good flush this year.

    I'm right off Whites School rd. Outside of Sevierville. Searched some great looking spots in the past few days. No luck
