I have found about 100 morels in the last four days (Hamilton Co.) For sure, not every Hickory I searched had morels but 100% of the ones I found were associated with a hickory tree. Not just any kind of hickory but a "scaly bark" (I think). Maybe shagbark, I'm not sure I know the diffenence but I zero in one kind of tree. My question is - A lot of people are finding morels in Tennessee. Are they also finding them around hickorys or some is it some other kind of tree. Maybe its the fishing conundrum. Ninty percent of the bass I have caught were on a spinner bait. But then 90% of the time I fish, I'm using a spinner bait.
