    The early birds get the worms. Were just months away from the 2019 season and the heat wave is making me think i should go check a few honey holes "just in case" ;-P. Merry Christmas to all the morel hunters who help contribute to this site each spring.

    Well being how much this site is read, I am located below Minnesota, East of Nebraska. North of MO. West of Illinois ;-) Last year ( or earlier this year ) wasnt the best year, But i am thinking all this rain is going to make for a killer year this go around.

    Not much longer now, about 120 days or so, perfect amount of time to get out scouting & finding new places. Good time to ask land owners for permission too, if you’re so inclined.

    Looks like the season started today in the Alabama area. Only 36 days from the earliest I've picked them delicious morels here in Mid- Central-ish Iowa. Won't be long folks!!

    How's the flooding going along the mighty Missouri river? If the river bottoms flood are they toast for the season?

    Well we’re up on the,
    ” Mighter Mississippi,” and generally speaking it our low spots are flooded longer than 7-10 days it not gonna happen & it’s best to move on up.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.... But I read last year online that when its too wet the mushrooms "explode" cuz their cells r too saturated... So does that mean to look for drier spots this year?
