I found 48 grays in southern KY last weekend and my brother, found small grays in southern Indiana Monday. So, grays should be up in northern KY. Hopefully you find some soon. You should have good luck this week for sure, or this weekend.
I've been finding blacks in Jefferson county since 4/6 and my son found 40 half frees and a couple of small grays in another part of the county. Found 11 fresh blacks today. Finding these on poplar/hickory ridges.
Was thinking it was going to be another disappointing year, but found a few small blacks in grant county KY today. Hopefully they are just running a little late because of the weather. Conditions seem perfect to me! Also checked in SW Ohio yesterday after work and found nothing.
Been out the past 2 days and checked all my spots for grays and yellows. or just yellows and immature yellows. Last year they were up about may 4 so im thinking its still a bit early. Happy hunting !!!!!!
Do you have any help u can offer me I live in Lawrence county, Yatesville lake area. I grew up in Michigan hunting them when I was a kid but moved to Florida for 30 years and until moving here 4 years ago really had not been had the chance. This is a whole new area for me and I'm at a loss on where to look, tops of ridges?, bottoms?, hill sides?, and what direction facing hills? Like I said I'm lost. I see areas that may be good but they don't always meet the correct rule of thumb. Any help would be appreciated. I'm determined to find out where to hunt them here and this summer I'm challenging myself to hunt ginseng. I like being in the woods and we have 400 acres there has to be something out there
, I find that most of the time they grow on north facing slopes if your at the top of a hill looking down you want to be facing north or near north. I find them from the top to midway down the hill. Normally poplar trees are ideal also elms. I have hunted morels for 21 years and always wanted to hunt seng but never knew where or what to look for, till last year. All the places I found mushrooms all those years never knew seng liked same conditions. Took me three trips to start finding but once I spotted some and was certain of it i was hooked and had success. I turned out with 1.5 pounds dry at the end of season. By no means is it as simple as morel hunting and you will work your butt off looking and digging but it is addictive so beware. Goodluck
The Jefferson county area is in it's prime for the big yellows. We started finding small 1-3 inch greys last Thursday and I picked 25 yellows greys yesterday that were 3-7 inches tall. Also picked about 4 lbs of dryads saddles. The morels were under ash in a creek bottom and I did find 5 under an apple tree.
