    I will most likely walk to the one. Walking 4-6 miles a day in season is no problem,particularly on flat lands. I can see what you mean now and it all has possibilities. Never usually go to the area due to population pressure. If my brother gets his surgery cancelled due to the Kung Flu we may take the boat, but he is really laid up so I hope he gets it done. I appreciate the tips, I will do my best to make sure no morel goes to waste. Hope your new location pays off for you. About 10 years ago I did real well on a several small streams in that area on soft maples, maybe if the birch don't produce the maples will. Morels always keep us guessing.

    It’s that time of the year again. Those days were I vacillate between going out and waiting.
    If I go out, I know damn good and well it’s too early here and I’ll strikeout. If I don’t go out, I’m worried I’m missing the season.

    I’ve been finding blacks since the second week of March. It looks like half free morels are abundant as well.

    I'm wondering if they are closing just the STL County Parks or if the MDC Conservation areas will be off limits as well...

    All my plans to drive south have been put on hold to stay close to family. First time in decades I have not. I guess the virus is causing all of us to change our lives, hopefully a one year deal. We are getting a little rain, sleet this morning in NW. Mo. Below freezing temps tonight. We really need any rain we can get. It was 10 days since last measurable amount around here, to long for morels to fruit. I hope we will get some up as temps. warm this week. I hope all the board members and their families have a safe spring and and fill a few sacks as they social distance in the timber. God bless America.

    I found two miniscule grays. I only found them because I know exactly where they pop every year and I was at the perfect angle to see them under the leaf litter.
    I’m going to restrain from going out for a few days. I worry all I’m doing now is trouncing the undetectable babies.
