    Anxiously waiting for the season to start. Please post here so we can all use the posting for getting out there this season. What are your thoughts on the season. I am thinking it will be at least another week and half before they are up. Most of my hunts are SE of Kansas City.

    Shoot, lets go for picking till out eyes bleed, or at least fingers. KC you may be right on later, Long as it stays wet. Up here in the ST.JOE tundra we had a loooong coooold winter. You guys got a lot of rain that way this week hope it keeps on coming, no floods of course.

    Kc area
    Checked all my early spots and some new ones and nothing yet. The soil is at 43-47 degrees, soft and plenty of moisture 2-3 inches down. We should be picking some small ones by Friday or Saturday in my opinion.

    I haven't been out for mushrooms yet,don't think it's quite time......may have to check the early river bottoms this weekend but have a feeling it will still be a little early because of the indicators.It's pretty unproductive to get the boat on the river and waste a half a day for some thimble sized greys but I always seem to do it anyways ....Good Luck out there fellow shroomers!!!!! :)

    Walked around a bit today in them river bottoms and didn't see any reds......so i'd say we got a few. Close but the next few days may work wonders.

    My husband and i live in Bates County and also have a few spots we hunt on in Cass… we haven't found a thing yet! We came across one baby mayapple yesterday - maybe that's an indication that the morels will be here soon. I would guess another week or 2 and they'll be popping up. Last year was a great year and hopefully this year will be as well!

    I'm assuming morelhunters.com has inaccurate reports? They're showing them around KC and even further north on the KS side. I'm in Omaha but when they start popping in KC it's always a good indicator.

    TheReaper: I can assure you that my report is not inaccurate. The only thing I can think of, is maybe the KC area has had more rain than we have. We'll see -- and be sure, we'll continue looking and report as soon as we find something!

    No, I believe your report for sure. I think the progression map may not accurate. It's hard to believe when there aren't any pictures or even accounts of the finds. Hopefully they pop this weekend!

    I think like most everyone else, gonna try my luck tomorrow (Sat. 4/12). Probably still too early, but hate just sitting and waiting. Good luck all...

    Maypops are up, asparagus is up & at picking size. Those usually make "just OK" clues that morels may be up.

    Looks like the rain tomorrow will help. Although it doesn't sound like morels aren't widespread around KC yet, I'm sure there are some nice flushes in the right microclimates under trees that didn't make it through the winter. I sure haven't seen any yet!

    I found one very small one today, maybe an inch tall. I found the ground to be extremely dry. Hopefully rain the next few days will help. I'm thinking next weekend will be better.

    Anyone have any idea what this hard freeze Monday night is going to do to the morels?
