    The little ones don't grow into big ones. Morels do pop, that's what fungi do, they pop. If there is any growth after popping, it's very minimal. So pick it as is,cause the next guy that comes along isn't going to wait and let it grow.

    So your saying that from a cloud of smoke comes a instant 2 liter bottle size yellow? Just sunday I went out and found 4 small yellows about the size of a bic lighter. went back wed. and all 4 were the height of a coffee cup and almost as big around, more than 3x the size they were just 3 days earlier.

    Some do get bigger and some do not. To say they do not is to suggest the appear fully formed out of thin air. But not all get bigger. Some may have peaked, for whatever reason, at a smaller size. I have personally seen some get larger when left, and have seen some stay the same size.

    PBWW.............YES,THAT'S WHAT I'M SAYING. You guys don't know what you're talking about. They are actually sideways,laying flat, before they pop up.Your full of shit. They'll dry up and rot before a week is up,so I don't believe in your study.44 years of hunting....get real,boys. How do you know that they weren't just four new big ones that popped in the same place???
    It's fungi...that's what they do.

    I am looking to purchase 5 to 10 lbs at one time not for resale but for cooking. I cook for many people in my out door wood fire pizza oven. Last year I paid 15 a lbs for bulk rate. I do not sale them we cook them and use them for our gust. It is some what of a ministry for us. I am also willing to trade nice bottles of red wine for mushrooms? If someone is over loaded post me back or call 402 651 seven nine to eight. I am willing to work for them if someone had a good spot i would bring the wine!

    I was going to post the same video clip. I'll mark the little ones and take my daughter back about a week later. She thinks I really know my stuff. Love watching her find them.

    Packman Mike, they grow, they don't just pop out of ground you silly rabbit. Found about 60 small ones yesterday covered with leaves and will wait a week or so, and they will be 50 times bigger than before. Grow up and learn some science you sillyhead.

    In 44 years of hunting you have never seen them grow, you have to be kidding me, or have really bad eye sight, I hunt with a guy if he isn't tripping over them they ar not there.
