Ones i found in that shit season last year were under a tree i could almost wrap a hand around. 5in for sure but had bigger tree around who knows.
I got out yesterday, SE MN, mostly elm and birch at 10-15' from the base on sunny slopes.
Is there any reason you cant or shouldn't hunt in the rain?
It's kinda miserable, but have at it!
Getting out in the rain is best (as long as not a downpour), it keeps the rubes and prying eyes away!!
Just made soft eggs with morels, ramps, fiddleheads and asparagus. Truly the best time of year!
If you do, you may find your morels are water logged. Very heavy & they may tend to break & crumble. Definitely don’t put them in a mesh bag when they’re like that.
I love to hunt in the rain. Usually nobody else is out, and I always seem to find a pile of fresh ones that just popped.
Don’t get discouraged! You have a much longer season than we do!!
Hutchinson is on the map.. no working for me today plan on doing a big loop down 169 over South of Hutch and up! Giddy up
Found about 30 so far today, west facing slopes. Time for lunch! Pizza and a beer... or two
Went along the river for a couple hours this morning. I may or may not have abruptly tested the waterproof claim on my hikers I was crossing a bog on a log and suddenly it sank and one for was knee deep in the mud. I had my handy walking stick to stabilize things
and that's the only reason I wasn't mud up to my armpits. By the time I got back to the truck 30 min later, must of the mud had fallen off. Can't say this little hobby isn't exciting!
I know ours really have even started yet. I'm just too excited!
Did pretty well today! Found about 150, 78 on one tree. It was awesome, they just kept going. Crappy part is a lot of them are starting to crumble a little. My biggest one tree haul . All the others are nice and fresh. Have fun picking!
I found about 2lbs today.
Those aren’t Chantrelles! Wrong time of year, they don’t grow in clusters or out of wood.
Probably golden oyster’s
These are NOT chants! Don’t eat!!!
Just went to my honey hole that had 50-100 pins and babies a couple days ago. Someone beat me back. 100+ stumps, got 8 little ones...
lohaze, what is that stuff they were growing in? young willows?
Rain Hunting? As long as it is not blowing horizontal. Thunderstorms, hail, can be a problem. Desperate people do desperate things. My tolerance of bad weather increases in proportion to the amount of morels I expect to find.
