    This weather’s going to make it tough. Surprised that they haven’t popped already.

    Wade up in my NW. corner of the state I have found them as early as late march and as late as the third week of May. The usual prime season in the northern part of the state is probably second week of April through the first week of May. Seems we are a little ahead of schedule this year to me but only time will tell. You know morels, when that top soil warms up to the right temp. they either pop or they don't. To dry forget it. Late hard freeze once they start, bad news. To hot to fast, short season. I just hope we get rain every week for the next 2 months and it stays cloudy and under 75 degrees. Not to much to ask is it?

    slowed stuff down today. barely hit 40. Lots of rain in the forecast for the next 10 days across "morel alley", this is my version of tornado alley for the storm chasers. Anything I can reach in a day, generally up to 500 miles or so round trip is in the alley. Although those posts out of Texas and S.Ok. sure look good. Have to do a overnight on that I would guess from my home base. All the rain they had down that way I imagine will produce good pickin. No floods please.

    Well hunter I got lucky/old enough to retire last year. My hunt time is now based on wife's wishes and taking care of dad. I can be a little more flexible than the last 40 years.

    Wade, Found them as early as the first week of April. No shortage of moisture around here. A few more weeks of warm weather and they'll be up. Could use some solar radiation to help out, but it's been more clouds than sun lately.
    Best of luck to everyone. Will be a strange year with this nasty virus lingering around. It's safer in the woods than in the city, even with the ticks.

    I'm up in Minneapolis. Both my jobs are temporarily shut down with no end date posted. I'm also a student and my classes all just went entirely online....I'm seriously contemplating jumping in my car and driving to Arkansas!!
