    Is there any reason you cant or shouldn't hunt in the rain?

    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.

    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 20190517_105947_HDR.jpg 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!

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!

    Those aren’t Chantrelles! Wrong time of year, they don’t grow in clusters or out of wood.
    Probably golden oyster’s

    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...

    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.
