    @morelsxs i likewise find Morels along the outside edges , but not out in the middle of a patch of pines, exception being when there is a dying elm or other typical host tree, out in the middle of pines..

    Wade,that's 2 weeks earlier than last year for Georgia. I hope it doesn't come too early for us up here. If they start for a week and we get a heavy freeze for a few days it could be a real short season. That would be about the 3rd or 4th week in march for southwestern pa. Which in central pa would make it close to the middle of april.

    I took my 10 yr old grandson and the beagle for a 2 hr hike today to look for sheds. He found 2, left side with a y and a left side 4point. I wasn't much help because I was looking more in the tree tops to see if they were dead. :) I will be going back to this area in late April -early May. IMG_4094.JPG IMG_4096.JPG IMG_4097.JPG

    This tree was beside a ladder stand, It looks like they were keeping a record of bucks shot at this spot years ago. It must be a good spot my grandson found the 4point horn less than fifty yards away. IMG_4098.JPG

    I can see why you want to go back. I’m not sure if you were babysitting because of schools off for Presidents‘ Day, scouting for morels, or training a future morel hunter but I would bet the house that one 10 year old had a great day...... best of luck and keep it up...

    I hope not, because there might be one more slash on the tree come spring. :D

    redfred, if you click on the picture right above the letters AF, it will show you a picture that was cut into the bark showing a buck head. it doesn't show up real well at normal size.
