    I was worried about the cold snap. Left a lot of small ones out there. Did cover them up with leaves. I'll check on them later in the week. Hopefully all is good and there 3 feet tall.

    Hey Wiz, Nice haul of morels there. What type of tree\ habitat were those picked on? I live in the NW corner of the state. I just wondered what the heck they grow on down there.

    I use the same stuff and recommend it to everyone. It is the best protection.

    Pretty heavy frost in the hills of Jefferson County this morning. I had to scrape my windshield.

    Been looking around Jackson and clay county, still have yet to find any good specimen. Gonna spend every evening this weeks looking. Wish i had the mornings off because that seems to be the best time.

    Good news:
    After scraping the heavy frost off my windshield this morning, I feared the worst.
    I almost didn’t tread out into the woods. This afternoon, though, showed me dozens and dozens of miniscule grays popping out. I clandestinely marked them and hope to retrieve them in a day or two once they’ve gained some girth. They all were about half the size of a finger and seemed very healthy.

    That being said, I’ve lost morels with this method before. We’ll see, but my biggest fear was stomping all the ones I COULDN’T see yet.

    where are you located Nico? I like to hunt the maples up here on our northern rivers, some years they can really do well.
