    I have to say this is, by far, one of the best mushroom seasons I have had in about 5 years. :) Not much luck in Wayne county...But Stark and Coshocton are producing nicely. Dog peckers just stopped in Stark and Grays are still being found. Yellows are hot in Coshocton as I type :) I have also been fortunate enough to find super fresh oysters and dryads along the way! How is everyone else fairing this spring?

    Where do you look for Morel mushrooms and what month is good time to go hunting for them?

    I dont ever give away my spots....but I only look on public land. Look around elms, beech or apple and on south faceing slopes. Season runs from april-may.

    I dont think they are done yet. Wayne county has just never been good to me. lol I tend to travel to stark and coshocton to find anything worth my while. I think we still have a week left. But that is just my opinion

    I don't mean your location. I meant what kinds of wood/forest, do you find them?

    I have had terrible luck this year. I've looked in summit, new franklin, stark and wayne countys and about 30 different sets of woods and have found morels in only one of those woods. I got about 3/4 of a pound and that was it. I couldnt find them anywhere and I was checking usual places. Under apple, elm and ash trees, locations with sandy rich soil. Tops of hills and bottoms of hills they were nowhere to be found. I have had the most frustrating year and have thrashed legs from briars and tick bites to show for it.

    I had great success this year and found out that if I coat the morels with corn flour they taste much better than with wheat or rice flour. I found so many this year that I still found some big yellows on May 17th near Hamilton, Oh. I was still eating them until May 30th this year. One of my best years.
