    Nothing out in Eastern Jackson/ West Lafayette county yet. Mayapple's are about 2 inches tall and the soil temp is just about perfect. Any day now!!!
    Found a few large red cup mushrooms. Anyone have any info on these, I cant find much online about them. Found all of them growing directly out of rotting sticks.

    Newrocker - there is a Scarlet Cup mushroom that grows out of wet sticks and branches. Probably the one you are talking about. It is NOT edible.

    Miss Shroom:

    Sorry to be so blunt but instead of waiting to poach peoples spot info you should do what every good hunter does. Go hunting. That is much more productive then waiting to see what area people find them in and invade their spots.

    We are not picking in KC YET LIVEWIRE but it won't be long. Things are looking good. Saw a report of some smalls in south KC metro area. No pic but I think it is legit.
    Miss Shroom for some reason a lot of the older posters on here are not around this year. I will admit the 'New" look to the Morels.Com web site looks different at first but if you will spend a little time looking around I think you will see it is better than before. On the front page the post there are the most recent topics that are being discussed, for a specfic stae click on the message board tab. when inside a topic at the top of the page to the left you will see your options,at the top of this page it says KC Metro area, below that are blue links that will take you to other places, this one is Morels.co, fourms, and then the main Missouri tab.
    Good luck

    One other thing Miss Shroom have you checked out MorelHunters.com yet. Join up and if you will look at the KC Metro board you might see an offer from me that may intice you to join. I will extend the dead line to join since the season is starting at a more normal pace this year.

    Found a False Morel, Devil's Urn and some other mushrooms. No morels yet, but this year I have noticed areas that "smell like morels." Has anyone else noticed this? Does it mean anything?

    I'm guessing, from past seasons, that this year the season should start a little late, like 4/22. Does anyone know the soil temps. in the KC area?

    About 54-61 at the moment, depending on where your located. But the cold temperatures will be running down the ground temp's a tad. But no big deal, it shouldn't shock the green again :D
