I'm guessing, by the look of things, that it will be a couple more weeks until we start seeing them, that is if we have good weather. Last year was horrible here and I just hope for a good year this time around.

I'm in the Warsaw area,nothing here yet. Did notice yesterday that the dandelions were starting to bloom. Once you see those yellow flowers showing up it"s time to go. Good luck

I had to look up "pheasant back" and, fittingly here, found this note on wikipedia:
"Many mushroom hunters will stumble upon this when looking for morels during the spring as both have similar fruiting times" exactly as you did!
Good luck out there. I'll start looking in earnest soon.

Yea there's not much flavor to pheasant backs, especially when compared to morels, and chanterelles, but they are safe and meaty, ok with garlic, and good in soup (only when they are very young/small)

I had to look up chanterelles too! I realize there is a lot out there I'm missing, but for now, morels are good enough to occupy my focus!

Chanterelles will be out in mid to late summer very good in soups and omelets, but make sure you ID them correctly...do you the morels will be popping in earnest after this tues rain? That's what in betting on

Good to hear Captain Caveman...I plan on heading out this weekend. With Wednesday being so warm I had high hopes...but then it got so cold I wasn't sure what to think. Thanks for the update.
