woodsman1, I am new to picking morels, just saw the first morel on the ground in my life. I was just wandering around looking for them. I am not looking for anybody's honey holes but to simply learn the art of finding them. I am from Tulsa and I am going to the morel festival on the 26th near St. Louis. If you are free around that time and would like to show me and my fiancé how to look for them then it be great.
