    This snow shouldn't effect the Morels I don't think. The ground is cold enough and if anything it's just more moisture. I'd say it's lookin good!

    Generally, May 1st is when I start seriously looking, but I think with the snow and a slower warm up (hopefully) it will be more like the second week of May when things get going.

    The past few years I've gone out looking the first week of May I tend to find the small greys and bigger ones in near SE-facing hillsides in gully's with rocks where it's warmer.

    Next time I'm up at my parents place I'll look for pictures, I'm not sure if it was 40lbs, but I know it was 3 full paper grocery bags. Pretty sure my mom has pictures...it was at least 25 years ago.

    Well, moisture isn't going to be a problem this year. I think the monster crop is coming.

    This is precipitation day for sure, ok by what I know so to speak just generally out loud.
    It’s all good.

    Just updated daily high, low, and precipitation for period from March 9th to April 17th. Compared averages from 2009 to 2018. So far temps are an exact match for 2009 and precip. is up. 2009 was my best year in past ten. The land we ended up on was producing 20 lbs. per day and we'd never been there before. I now know it well, and with the right conditions and a few more days of hunting who knows. Targeting May 15th.

    As a n00b to the scene in general ... this post made me smile! After finding a few "spots" last year but being discouraged by a poor harvest-- im really itching to hunt a good year! Had a blast last year and was on too many spots thinking where the hell are the little brains?!
