anxiousmorelhunter, Heads up, they are out right now. We've been watching them sprout since last week, and finally harvested yesterday.They were all blonds. We've seen no grays,but it's been a rather unusual season.Things will happen really fast,and the worry now is they may rot out cause the grass is so long,and more moisture and cool temps forecast. Good luck, hope you find a big batch of them.... (=
anxiousmorelhunter, I got these this A.M. I tied into them yesterday as well. Now is the time...only kept enough for supper tonite. there are tons more this size out. Good luck you can find them..... (=
bout time! found a few grays and yellows in a spot, ended up grabbing those as the stems were damaged from insects. found a few teeny tiny guys in another area that I left along to grow up a bit. from the looks of them they must of came up in the last storm.
anxiousmorelhunter , Call in sick,skip work,what ever ya got to do. I'm @ work right now and it's hard cause I know morels are just a popin up all over our area! I won't be in here( work) tomorrow or the next day....and then the weekend. We got to be close to peakin,and pickin should be great for the next few days. " Good hunting to you."
They are in the thick/nasty stuff with dead elms around, but both up high and low. Hint, got a state park sticker ?,do you know where your "W.P.A." areas are? It's still easy to find/spot the dead elms,but the trees are fillin out fast.St Croix rice bottoms, Apple river bottoms, Willow river,Ten mile creek, Kinni,all good areas to hunt. Go For It.....
sad day hunting in young oak land. I tree I was watching for weeks thats hadnt popped did in the last few days and got hit for a good 100+ morels. most of the rings left were dime size or smaller with a few in the quarter to half dollar range. not a good way to start the nights hunt thats for sure.
OldElm, You are quite the morel hunter!! I went out again last night with my husband... nothing! I applaud you!!! I will try again tonight though, cant give up that easy!! when I find some, I will upload a beautiful picture just like yours (a girl can hope right?) :wink:
