The reports on the Oklahoma board don't talk about anything north of OKC yet. Probably will be at least 2 weeks in the northern part of Kansas.

The daily highs look decent, it's the overnight lows that bother me. Need that soil temp to come up. So amped though!!

Hey Boss, yeah that's my primary area. I've checked a couple of the usual places but nothing yet, that was late last week though. There's another gent on here who I'm going to try to get together with. If you're interested. You have to provide the popsicles though :mrgreen:

Well we can check new places I've been wanting to check around Clinton lake there's some spots off the beaten path I use to go haven't checked this year yet 2 years ago they both had plenty to pick but last year I only found a couple but morels are that way I guess skip years or more but I also want to try new places as well I'm always adding to my spots because of how there good one year and bad the next I'm still looking for the honey hole I wish I had access to some of the private properties that people find garbage bags full of them the most I've ever found in a season was maybe 10 pounds and that was 2 years ago I've only been looking about 5 years I usually go with my wife but she's pregnant with our first born so she don't want to go but if your up to it we can meet Friday morning here and maybe next weekend I can meet you in your area I don't know if your areas are better or not you don't even have to take me to your spots we can just explore new areas around you I don't know how well you usually do each year or how long you been looking but would be nice to meet a new hunting buddy don't ever go with no one else except my wife

I am pretty new to morel hunting. I found a handful last year and the year before while searching near railroad tracks, but I haven't really gone out and search any significant wooded areas. I do not know anyone with private land that would be good hunting grounds. I have considered searching the Perry Lake area, as I live about 20 minutes from Lawrence. Based on what I rad about the area, there are several trails that run through vastly forested areas, so it seems like there would be a large and diverse area to search. Has anyone searched that area before? If so, would you mind sharing same basic information about it? I am not asking for specific locations, just advice about access and topography that might help me select a good starting point and avoid other hunters right off the bat.

Thanks

Hello everyone, sounds like everyone is as excited for this years Morel season as I am! I am from Lenexa, and have been hunting Morels from a young age. Unfortunately, I have not had any luck the last 5+ years, as I have only been hunting at Shawnee Mission Park. I have been trying to keep my eye out while turkey hunting, but to no avail. I am hoping that this year I will be able to bring back "bags full" so my wife can understand why I spend so much time in the woods. If anyone has any tips/tricks or hotspots for my area I am all ears! Good luck to everyone, and God bless!
