Hmmmm.. You..Found those, and planning to go back in two weeks ..Hmmmmm...
Well I Assume that You know your Spots, and know them Very Well..
But when I find in My Spots, like Yall found in your spots..
I'm back checking again every 4 days at the most...
But I here you, Our Season here in South Central Indiana last 4 to 5 weeks...
So if you believe the 20 you found is just proof of your season beginning..I guess that in two weeks it should be the middle of your season..
Hmmmm... Never Mind 馃憤馃徎
Thank You for Your Excellent Reporting..
馃崉Love The Hunt馃崉

You have to investigate that haul closely. What you have there is a typical yellow morel but in all 3 stages of growth at the same time. The babies are in worse shape than the adults. Better hope for a nice rain to rejuvenate or planning on a lot of those spots drying up. I heavily agree with wade when you find a patch with that much variety you need to go back within 3-4 days. 2 weeks you will be harvesting mushrooms that haven't even popped yet.

Ok everybody I work a 6 or 7 day work week this time of year and its a 2 and a half hour drive from my home i go when i can but i do work for a living if i miss a few then so be it we usually pick 500 to as many as 2000 in a good year in two states over a 6 week period we follow the bllom in elevation from 500 ft above sea level to about 5000 ft in the mountains wish i had time to go back every few days must be nice to have that much free time.also plenty of moisture in the woods should be a good year.

I still get my yard morels every year. My hunts are very relaxing and involve lots of recreational activities 馃槫 If I had to figure hours of driving into a hunt I doubt I would find as many as I do.
