Well the elms are seeding and spring is coming. Time to throw up something and see who is still with us after another winter. Time to start stomping some timber to build some hills legs back and find some good spots. Time to start watching who got precip and how much. Time to start watching ground temps and boards to see if a road trip south would be fruitful. Time to spray all the gear, last I saw there are 12 different tick born diseases present in Mo. and its neighbors accounted for. Time to Hunt is just around the corner. Happy morel season all.

Things are shaping up for us KB, been getting good moisture and Temps are rising. Won't be long now. Hopefully we have a long slow warm up with a extended season.

I still see a lot of cold nights and cool days ahead. I cant imagine anything before April around here unless we get a week of sun and warmer days and nights. I really hope we don't go early and get burned by a hard freeze. A good widespread rain every 5 days, nothing torrential. Don't want any flooding. A gradual warmup of ground temps and no temps above 80 until at least Mothers Day would not be to hard to ask. Would it?

Yeah you guys might as well live in Georgia this winter. According to a map I saw you guys are like 2 weeks ahead on vegetation. You are about the same latitude as me and we got nothing. A few daffodils on southern exposure, maple buds, elm seeds, sycamore seeds, henbit just showing a little. Lots of mud in the timber. Wonderful

A few more warm days will stress the situation but I think we're gonna be fine up here in Kansas City. Now me thinks it will be 5 to 7 days early from my previous prediction of 2 weeks early. Last week of March 1st week of April is crunch time馃槑
Just 40 miles north but we are not doing anything early here. North of me gets a lot colder real fast. Might be a sweet year for chasing morels. Actually move north in a steady pattern. Last year that stretch of 90's weather ran clear up to Canada and sped up everything north. I picked morels way north of Omaha on the same day I picked some just north of St. Joe on the way back.

29 degrees today, it looks like we are in for a slow warm up, which I will be happy to see. The early/fast warm ups never seem to make for the best picking.
I remember when we could still pick in mid May in our region, never used to go north until late April,, early to mid May.
Would be nice to pick South to North again.

Last year was super sketch this year I'm gonna take it easy. Car got stolen twice last year and broke into once during the shroom season I'm gonna try to hit lots of places on foot only or to get dropped off.
I always think about that also when am at the public hunting grounds, that if when get back is my vehicle going to be there or if has been broken into. Always a bunch of sketchy stuff happens there. It's not like we can do anything about it when deep in the timber.
