    Now the snow just won't stop. Supposed to get another half foot this weekend, another 4 to 5 inches next week. least here in the cities. moisture good for the mushrooms, but man, we keep getting too much and I worry everything in the low country will be flooded out with no merkles. any other thoughts on this?

    We have so much snow now it's getting ridiculous. A fast warm up could mean a LOT of flooding. Hoping the Great Spirit is on our side this season!!:D

    I know my honey holes have gotten the most snow ever recorded according to Accu Weather. If we can just slow walk into spring and then get rain it could be a good year.

    I like watching YouTube mushroom hunting videos, gets me a bit too anxious though.

    Hi everyone. My name is Brad, and I've been lurking here for a few days now. I live in St Paul, and I'm fairly new to foraging. Just wanted to say hi and thanks for all the useful info on this site. I've read the 2018 MN season thread thoroughly and learned a ton. Looking forward to hitting those SE facing hills in about a month! If I manage to find morels, I'll report back.

    Welcome, your in one of the top states if not the top one for Morels. Wisconsin could be number one as well. Mid May is generally go time. Learn as much as you can about elm identification.

    Thanks guys. I didn't hunt morels last year, and in fact haven't since my parents used to take me out when I was a kid. Over the last few years I've been finding some real nice chicken of the woods up near some family land near McGregor. That and fiddleheads have been the only things I've really foraged up until now. Hoping to change that this year.

    Learning to ID elm trees is what I'm concentrating on now. I think I'll get the hang of it. I find myself rubbernecking as I drive these days. I'm sure some of you can relate. You'll be the first to hear if I meet with any success.

    My advise is to stop now! Once you start looking for elms on every road trip you have the virus. It's not pretty, 95% of the population will wonder what happened to you. It's only here where other afflicted individuals share the burden you carry. If decide to proceed welcome aboard.
