I used to live in MN, but still come back to hunt for a week....its hot where I live, so no morels....I came last year and found much less than I had in previous years, but it sounds like it was a bad year. I am hoping with the massive amounts of snow MN got this winter it will be better than last year. I was thinking about the 12th of may, or the 19th of may to come...I guess I'll just have to wait for my MN people to give me reports of dandelions in the yards!! Soo excited!!!
