I have been dreaming about morels for over a month.....it's so strange!!! Lol. Can't wait to get up and hunt, but not sure I can even come this year if it's late like it was last season....maybe I'll get lucky and it will be more around the 12th of May instead of the later part of the month....time will tell.... What sucks for me is not knowing, and the tickets get more expensive the closer you book to the date you want to go. :(

" shroomtrooper " Ya might be right on for the 14 - 15. We're having the perfect set up for a bumper crop, all we need are a few warm night's,and they're on the way. Don't let the weather fool ya! A lot of stuff will happen quick this year. Asparagus not up yet, but the lilac's are pushin buds/flowers, hosta's,ferns are up,and skunk cabbage is already done blooming. We are on the cusp of picken.

My guess is mothersday weekend. It shall begin. Mother nature is been progressing while we sleep.just look at the signs . Suckers are running. Syrup is done. The leaves on the trees are going to open any day now. And the wily morel will pop! Black morels like young popple groves on hills:) can't wait !

I have my tickets booked for the 14-17....... I'll hope it warms up by then..... I wish I could send the heat from down here up there.... 100 degrees by tomorrow.....:-((..... I have a feeling I'm just going to come up and tromp around in the woods for nothing, but at least I get to hang out with my mom..... That's the best part...:))

Not sure about Houston Co, but the Mankato Group on Facebook has dated pictures with tiny morels. Guy found a few pin pricks the other day. They are probably pinky finger tip sized now. In other words, there is no reason to be looking yet, as they have a 14 - 20 day growth cycle. Next weekend will probably be a smidge early yet (I'm sure plenty will go out), but middle of next week to following weekend should be the real kickoff.

first time poster here. Well except I just opened up a"topic" not knowing that I could of just joined in here. Our friends in Indiana picked 58 greys today in 45 minutes. We took them to the Grand Rapids area in June 2013 but only found 3 2 of which were dried up. Too late. This year my husband & I want to look in the Walker area. Poplar trees?

Old Elm, do you think the 14th and 15th of May for vacation for picking morels is still holding up? Or should I go with 19th 20th. Want to scoot up north to pick blacks also. Buckthornman let me know what you think also if you would please. I think I will be alright but not totally sure. Thanks
