Countrybee: Mankato has good areas for hunting in the state parks and WMA. Look for the river ravines and, of course, dead elms. Probably won't be in MN till Mother's Day at the earliest.

I tried for years but I was unsuccessful every time. I got some books and I picked about 350 last year! I found almost all of mine in areas that looked like they held water part of the year, small areas with ash trees. I am red-green color blind but I have a heightened sense for browns and it works in my favor. While I am not familiar with your area I found them in the same areas over 100 miles apart.

Holy crap! I found 3 morels all of last year, but got me hooked for this season. If I can double or triple that I'll be a happy hunter. If I luck into a bunch of them I might die from pure joy! Good luck everyone!
