Seasons got to be getting close may be early hard to tell with the colder weather this week but may be earlier than normal
Any body been out scouting yet seen some dandelions blooming and red buds today
i live just southeast of lawrence, I thought it might be an early season as well but after this weather we have had I think it will be the middle of the month they really start popping just like always but I don't think that will stop me from getting out periodically just to be sure, happy hunting.
I hear ya hahillbilly, I'm trying to target some time off and it's difficult. Don't want to wait too long nor go to early. I figure I would at least wait until I find a couple first, although the 'maps' show finds as north as Tonganoxie and Independence.
I was in Tulsa over the weekend. Only got out for about an hour to a place I thought would be thick with them, but came up empty handed. And talk about a torturous drive, looking at all the potential gold mines as we go down the road
I found a half dozen today a hundred yards from the Little Arkansas among a lot of rotting deadfall elm along with some old disintegrating firewood that is probably oak. The color was dark gray against a lighter gray. Largest one was no bigger than a billfold or thereabouts. I found several dozen in the same spot two years ago that were almost orange -- found none at all last year. I'll be exploring again tomorrow. I could use lots of advice --where to find. What not to do. How to get the almost microscopic little crittters to abandon the grooves and pits of their morel homes. I am soaking today's harvest in cool water over night, Last time I looked, the critters were doing the backstroke.
Niece posted to FB again yesterday golds as tall & as big around as pop cans. She's in the Pittsburg area. With all her photos from a couple of weeks until now looks as if she's found around 300 or so mixed. Nothing yet here in Franklin county that I've heard of. We're getting pretty heavy rain right now & supposed to continue over the whole weekend. Not supposed to be real warm next week in our forecast. Low 60's for highs & middle to high 40's for lows all week. Not a happy camper.
sek has been golden. probably the best season ever, and I been doing this for 30 yrs. we have picked over 600 in the last three days. looks to be about over though, heavy rain today keeping me indoors, if it quits, then might go out. last night, we left hundreds onion bags where to full to carry.
ksu, I'll let you know, never have sold them before, how much per lb? These are fresh out of the woods with a damp paer towel in each 1 gal storage bag. Never been cleaned. keep checking them, still fresh as ever
