    Morel Hunting in the Mountains. I'm starting to propagate Morels at 7,600 feet in the Manzana Mountains. Anybody have any experience with morels in this area?

    I used to morel hunt in Ohio - I didn't know they could be found in New Mexico - is it true?

    How is it going with propigating morels? I live in northern NM at 8000 and would like to try, but I think it might just be too arid here. I have heard they will grow on cottonwood chips so it might be possible if I could create the right growing conditions.

    I'll check out what's up with Santa Fe. Morels need 3 days of 70 degree weather in the daytime and 50 degree weather at night to pop. The 50 degree weather at night is a problem.
