Where are you at Phil? I moved here a little over a year ago from oregon, and had some luck last year, but given the strange (early and short) season, I dont have too many places to go. I'm around Jeff City and would like to go. I'm a great hunter and could always return the favor around these parts or out west with new hunting spots. email [email protected]
Hello Bob, yes last year was a strange season. I hit the bluffs the day after I returned from Australia on Easter Sunday. Not very many fresh ones were left(mostly burnt) was extremely disappointed as years prior I've pulled no less than 60lbs from my honey holes. This year seems like its going to be prime hunting though! I'm layed off work the week of the 15th, honestly couldn't ask for better timing lol! Trying to find a hunting partner, would be a 3day excursion & I'm located inbetween Atchison ks. & St. Joseph mo! If interested give me a shout [email protected]
The worst part of the flood situation will be the sand. In 1993 the sand was so infused in the morels that they were unedible. Beware if you are buying from anyone you don't know. There will be lots of morels along the rivers, lots of big morels there...but they will be full of sand you just cannot get out. Let them spore for future years.
Thats what I was thinking as well, dont believe lead contamination would be an issue from the Omaha area. Quite a ways upstream from the Atchison/St. Joseph area. I've been in the bottoms a few times, haven't ever found a great amount there perhaps a few puonds. Do know that alot of people find several there, although my lucks always been in the hills thought I would give it a try this year.
