    They look like a witches broom elm trees. Ash branches curl more! Just my opinion. Bucky says syrup is not on schedule and morels will probably be as Wiley as they shall be. Can't wait though. It's getting...:) my reasoning is drag some elm branches then drag some ash! You'll know the difference:) nice to hear from everybody!! Buckthornman.

    Buckthornman, "OldElm Here" Guess they decided to put in my old GRAVITAR name!! Oh well there goes my cover. This won't be to bad of a change, remember a few years ago "Jack" changed the format and everyone bitched about it then too. I got your TXT message & new phone #, so good to go. I agree this could start early, how ever the night time temps gotta come up a bit more. We went down the Mississippi as far as Lacrosse last week still early. Made the mistake of taking "Young Elm" into Dave's guitar shop, damned if a fender custom shop Stratocaster guitar didn't follow us home. Jeez.

    Hey everyone. Been hunting for about 5 years. Followed this forum last year. I hunt mostly rock county but would be interested in doing some traveling this year to hunt and make new friends. Also if there's any one in rock who is new we could get together as well

    Checked a couple places today. Looks prime but nothing popping where it has pkpped in the past. I would be open to tagging along or hunting together on my spots if anyone is open. Though schedule wise I am very busy.

    I haven't had any luck in Madison, was thinking of heading down to Rock County some time this week... still clueless where I'll be going though, lol... but if you ever want company on a hunt, let me know :D

    Should have stayed in Michigan, I'd probably have more than enough at this point to get me through to next season. 2 years ago I had just over a pound (dried) by The first week of May, and just ran out, now running around like a newbie with his head cut off trying to get back in the game in an area I still have no clue about.

    Found two mature morels while mowing lawn in Madison yesterday. Surprised that they were that large(April 25th). With the incoming rain this year has the potential for a good crop. Good luck!

    Thanks, I appreciate the offer. I'm in Jefferson county and have spent my share of time in Horicon Marsh. I've hunted in Northern Illinois for quite a few years. Give me a shout if you get really hard up for an old guy to go with you.
