I have never really found blacks, I guess I just don't look in the right places for them. As a result I rarely find a lot of shrooms early in the season. I have been looking though, especially here in the last 10 days, and haven't seen any yellows yet.
I've been checking a couple reliable spots every other day or so and today is the first I've seen any at all, and they are blacks... Looked like they popped up in the last twelve hours or so. Hope they get a little bigger and I get 'em before the turkeys do!
Harrison county - I've found about 175 morels since Sunday the 22nd. Of those about 75% have been blacks and the rest split between half-frees and grey/yellows. I found a small flush of greys the 22nd that matured last week and I got them yesterday and they were pretty big, around them a bunch of babies were poking through. The rain yesterday and warmer nite temps will get them out and up here this week.
