    20190419_095139.jpg took my brothers dog for a walk out to a spot that I have found tons of ramps at and found these just starting to grow! Won't be long now until we can atleast pick some greens I'm pretty sure the fiddle heads won't be far behind

    It’s 100 degrees here today..:-( too hot too soon for me..... I’m going to be very excited for the next 2-3 weeks of weather patterns for MN.... I am somewhat hopeful for this season, because there has been a crap ton of moisture. When I start dreaming about them they are about 2 weeks away..... no dreams yet...... but there will be...:)

    Those seasons happen or they'd call it mushroom picking instead of hunting. Indiana is just starting to pick up mid state, if you track the season at 100 miles per week that puts start of season around 5/10 in southern MN. We'll see, I've tentivly scheduled my vacation for 5/16. Hoping for a slow cool spring so they'll come up a.d hold longer.

    Dakota and Scott counties will be my bitch.

    Also, I'll be camping at Lake Maria State Park in Monticello, May 11th weekend. Has anyone had any luck there?

    I'm from Kansas City and I've been watching everyone post the morels they've found. I'm jealous! It's my first Spring in Minnesota and I've already dreampt that I found a bunch of mushrooms. I've been exploring different parks trying to find some promising spots. I'm excited!

    I hope to get out tomorrow and check out the woods to the south. I've never been to Lake Maria SP stilz, I heard good things for mushrooms, just not morels.

    Congrats Dtails! Bagged a big boy by archery on Friday too walk-n-stalk! Watched two coyotes chase turkeys for a half hour before I snuck in for a kill.
    Ice shack is stowed away and boat is ready. I'll never have the problem of running out of things to get done, but I am ready for shroomin!
    May 17th I'll be heading southeastern way, and May 25th headin north.

    5/10? Perfect! I'm planning on taking a trip south a few days before that so I'm glad my timing for vacation off work was well-planned :) :D

    Haven't found morels there in my own experience, but I'm sure someone else has. It's a popular mushroom spot for other species though. Tons of Chantrelles after a nice mid-summer rain. Chantrelles are really easy and plentiful, so not quite as fun but as morels but the season is much longer and they are pretty tasty if you can find the golden variety.

    Ya the honey do list never ends but can't wait to get back in the hunt of morels .. someone early said they know it's getting close when you start dreaming of them but for me it's nightmares of missing out on the flush and finding stumps and moldy ones. Yikes
