    Hello!! I am super anxious to get out and find some morels! I checked Friday, didn't find any - wondering if anyone found morels in the New Richmond/Hudson area?!

    Thanks :)

    Ah! Man, I just want them to pop! The lilacs are blooming, so that's a good sign... My brother in law lives in Decorah Iowa and they are all over by him... Should be any day now!!

    Id say 5-7 for ones that arent minis, but it seems alot of people like those super small guys.

    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.... (=

    lots of super tiny rings of sorrow out today, mostly reburied under leaves. it made me chuckle a bit at how small the stems were.

    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.

    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.
