    With all this rain coming we should be in good shape.

    Lock ness monster, Bigfoot, and morels in Ohio!! First year of morel hunting and beginning to think like that!! Lol. Saw a mink, a raccoon, a snake , a pair of wood ducks, a common merganser , white trillium, red trillium, spring beauty , yellow trout Lilly and mayapple. Not one morel. Looking in a river valley. Am I doing somrthing wrong or is it just too early or am I legally blind. Great day but empty cast iron pan!!

    I've always heard to go high on south facing hillsides early, and this is early in NE Ohio. Heck, I found the first dandelion in my yard yesterday doing yard work. Forsythia is blooming, but no dogwoods or apple trees yet. What kind of trees are in the area you're hunting? That can be important.

    And ksushroomer, nice going! You're on my latitude (Mahoning Co.), so things should be going here soon.

    Hit my honey holes in Geauga County today to see what’s happening. May apples are just starting to pop up and Ramps are just about 4-6 inches tall. I’m going to give it a week but we’re more like 2 weeks out. Cold weather the next couple days won’t help matters but the rain should.

    5 days after the last picture. Went to my
    Spot today and noticed about 4 more popped up. Was honestly expecting to see a lot more so I’m kind of disappointed. 937CF6A9-CCB2-4EA7-9440-A6403BCBEE5E.jpeg

    This rain should help, but the cold temps the next couple of nights might knock them back a bit. Prepare for a secondary flush!

    Hey, everybody! This is my first year going out for the hunt. I've gained permission to explore some private land near Ravenna and was curious if I have a shot finding any this Saturday. Thanks for the insight and good luck to everybody out there.

    Sad thing, but the Family will now have closure. Didnt hear of this one. A month ago, I read an article that this happens every couple years or so. Mostly, cause Mushroom Hunters tend to get n the Thick & Hairy parts of the woods, others might not often venture.
