I too am in Taney County and found 20 small greys last Friday and about 30 small yellows yesterday. Nothing over 3" though and my honey holes are still blank. I'm hoping the toad strangler we got last night will bring them up for a breath o fresh air! Last year sucked, like a Hoover. I'm hoping this year will be better...and figured they'd be up already. It's comforting to not hear of them being found by the basketfuls yet... even the AR faction, the guide I usually use to start my hunt seems to be quiet.

Im up in Ozark. I was thinking of trying trying Druy-Mince this weekend. Anyone from Taney ever try there? Not looking to waste my time. Where I live is rocky and pickings are slim.

Any general areas down in Taney that are good areas to look?

Found some NW of Springfield on Monday. The greys were at a higher elevation than the yellows. Some of the yellows were pretty big.They were all under elm trees.

I am in Republic and am getting depressed. Haven't found ONE yet and have spent about 8 hours looking. The spots I am looking "look" perfect. Dead, rotting elms, ashes, walnut ALL over the place...with the upcoming forcast, it looks like I'll have to go to OK or AR to get any...

I need some guidance. What does any one think about Henning CA?

Another thought in my fungus eaten mind is being unable to imagine finding 8 POUNDS of morel mushrooms. I don't even know what eight pounds would look like. But the thing I really can't imagine is to say you found such an amount in MO and not post a picture? SHOW ME!!!!

Here is what 25 pounds looks like. Found them near Springfield today. Took 2 of us 5 hours to collect them all. We ran out of bags to haul them: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.579753915382068.1073741827.100000423942760&type=1&l=659112ec09

ok look on the west side of hills ,look around ceder,and any moose,look at the edge of fields,look in and at all wash downs at the end of a field,.When you find a what i call a wash to a ravene.look all over .Untill
till you picture one in your head that day.it seems it's hard .But it's not take your time and stand ,with your back to the tree,and start looking like 15 feet away.And as you look pull you r eye's back toward you .Cause you see that covers more ground.Best of look .I do know one hot spot in spring field.it'a on the north side of the Zoo,GO On the outer on the north side kansas,It will take you about 3 miles and turn right .It's some trashy old rock homes for the most part.Get out and look on the right side of the road under elm trees.After that you drive on down the road .If you get out of the car and listen you will here water .do stop there park .and go down the left side of the road .It can be steep.there all over that side.I live in branson and will not go there.So if you want to brag go to those spots .Best of luck young man.

I live in KC, but had to go to Springfield today for work. While I was down that way I stopped and did a little hunting. I found 2 nice morels in about an hours time. 1 yellow (3-4 inches) and 1 grey (2-3 inches). I was acutally a little shocked to see mushrooms this nice and not see any others close by, but hey, I didn't get skunked...

I am still very inexperienced in morel hunting, but to me it still looks early. There's just not much growing yet. It looked to me that the mayflowers around where I was today (just north of Springfield) were behind the ones I saw up around KC last week. Just my humble opinion though.

I bow down and want to thank the Morel King and Raven. I wish I knew Raven was male before seeing the picture cause I wanted to call but my WIFE said I wasn't "traipsing through the woods with some unknown female." Unfortunately she was too narrowly focused on jealousy instead of other possibilities like it referencing a BIG BLACK BIRD, Poe etc...!!!!
Anyway, I am convinced I have not been looking in the right places. THANKS AGAIN Morel KING for your words of encouragement and taking the time to talk! I'm outta here...
