    Feeling hopeful that this rain will get us all going in the north here. I'm near Cadillac area. We did a little hunting a few weeks ago before the snow, no luck. Starting a new thread and hoping my fellow mushrooming neighbors will join in with their bounty and area found! Good luck everyone

    Too dry and cold in Clare county. Hope the rain and warmth do the trick!

    I have been finding some in cheboygan county in each of the last two weekends. All black morels. Mostly small ones. I hope that a bunch of morels grow up out of the leaves after some warmer weather. These were last weekend finds.

    So what is the rule of thumb about northern MI vs the lower? I'm guessing they're a week behind?

    Cheboygan county is at its peak right now for the black morels. But finding will get tough soon due to increased hunting pressure.
    The pics are for Saturday and Sunday. Picked about two and a half to three pounds total. The gray morels could start popping this
    weekend with all the warmth. Get out there guys before someone beats you to your spot!!

    We just hunted a little west of Cadillac. Found nothing yet. No crowd though.

    Picked these in 1.5 hours last evening (20th of May) in Emmet County. The bigger black morels are showing up now. Northern Michigan
    is at its peak right now and will not last much longer than this weekend with all the warm dry weather predicted. I looked for grays and could not find any yet but ground temperature was 52-54 degrees so they could pop any day now. Please get out there morel lovers in Northern Michigan.

    Nice mess Glenn, I knew we We were just a bit earl. Yellows are Here north of Fort Wayne. I hope you continue for a couple weeks. I don’t think we’ll be able to make it up any more this year. I’ll comment if I find any here in knoble county.
    Happy hunting !

    Hi Northern Michigan,

    Just keeping everyone updated. This weekend the black morels are still in good shape and yesterday I did start
    finding grays but it is too early to pick and get more than a small mess so I am kind of in a lull point. Blacks were
    great this May but I have used up all of my spots and I dont like to pick 1-3 inch grays. I think next weekend will
    be game on for the esculentes.
