    I agree. I'm chomping at the bit and anxious to start finding them. Still nothing at my early spots. Last season I found my first ones on 20 March. Weather is perfect right now, but I guess the shrooms are not ready to show themselves yet. Soon, though, soon.

    You should check your 10 day. In North Alabama, I know conditions are going to be PERFECT the last weekend of March, then the next 2 weeks.

    Should be a great, lateish season.

    Spent a few more hours today out there in the woods.... nothing yet. I'm guessing this clod snap coming there will hold it off even longer? still nice to be out and watching the woods start to wake up!

    Hopefully we get some rain soon. I think we should see some rain and morels by late next week. A little dry I think. Still nothing in my early spots.

    Checked one spot today (28, March 2016), and nothing. Maybe this weekend? Sucks so far.

    I FINALLY FOUND MY FIRST ONE yesterday, 29 March. A nice grey, and a loaner. Nothing else around in any of my spots. I was beginning to think I may not get any this year. At least I know it is starting. This weekend should be good after the rain Thursday and Friday!. Lets get some!

    Hello everyone, I am new in the area, retired military. I enjoy getting out in the woods and searching for morels. I grew up in Iowa and loved hunting every year. I am not familiar with available areas to hunt with out trespassing, getting shot or any kind of trouble. I'm not asking for anyone's secret spots or anything, just some assistance where I could hunt and possibly take my son. Thank you for your assistance and good luck.

    Well, the 2016 Season is underway. I am a bit north but I will be bringing weekly content to the youtube channel - As the season progresses forward I will bring tip and helpful hints on how to find great locations. I have selected my spots for 2016 and I will bring you along with me from scouting to harvest.

    Enjoy the footage.

    I would definitely be interested! is anybody finding anything near coweta or have I missed it already? I have about 100yds of creek on my property that is heavily mined with tulip poplars and am just wondering if I just got a bum sample size or if it's user error... :-x

    FINALLY. Found a few in one of my spots. You can look me up on FB Jody Uncle Fester Mohler, and see the pics. The season is underway. Found these in Canton, a little further north than my early spot. Checking that one today at lunch. Great to have found some. About a pound worth. Retirechief, where you located? I too am retired military, and learned to hunt them with my grand-dad, my dad, and brother in southeast Iowa. Hit me up.
