There's a lot of pictures on here with people picking first knuckle length morels. Don't pick them, let them be, let them give back to the woods, lets the spores spawn so that bigger ones can exist and by doing that, preserving the woods for future decades of happy morel hunting. People are jumping the gun and picking anything and everything. They are doing themselves no good, it is only ruining the woods in which they rely on finding morels. With thousands of new morel hunters and the decreasing morel,,,, it's time we give back to the morel! Don't pick everything you see, let the morel do its thing to preserve its life in the woods. Always leave some behind to die off and recycle itself for future morels!
