Heard a report of blacks coming up in the Walker area, anyone up there finding any.
Hmm interesting i Havn't heard anyone around here having any luck so far. Its still pretty cold dropping down to the 30s at night around here but i will go out scouting a bit today and let you know.Heard a report of blacks coming up in the Walker area, anyone up there finding any.
I'm a newbie when it comes to morels and haven't had any luck. Reports are true I know several people last weekend who got into blacks.Just moved to Hubbard from Iowa. Any tips are appreciated.
Being a newbie not sure I can answer those questions however the area I'm going today has lots of white oak, poplar and Aspen. I will report my findings if I do get any and take some pictures.Thank you so much! I am gonna go give it a try right now! Rain yesterday should have helped. I usually find yellows under deam elms, but no elms here. Yes, I live near Long Lake. What kinds of trees? Any pictures would be great!! I heard that you can find blacks under smaller Aspen/Poplar trees, the size of a popcan. Do the trees need to be dead? Are recent clearcuts productive? The deer ticks are out in full force so be careful!
Got any picks of unpicked morels? Do you have a preference as to trembling or big tooth aspen?I was out today in the PB and I found these. Not a ton out there and I didn't find very many small ones either. I hunt all over and I find them in all kinds of stuff. One spot I have is mainly old growth with heavy canopy cover so its open underneath with a mix of trees but mainly hardwoods. Another spot I have is similar but this morning I found them in adjacent popples about 6 inches in diameter. I tried 2 other spots that look similar but I have not walked through before and nothing was there. With all the logging in Hubbard county a spot you have might not be there long. I've lost a couple in the last few years. It didn't matter which facing slope I was on today, I found them on every one. If you can find a piece of ground that has burnt recently and still has tree cover you are golden, one of my best finds was on a piece that burnt and we picked the next year. We picked hundreds out of an area less then 2 acres.
I'd have to ask the other half what kind of trees they are. I don't have any pics and have been way to dang busy to get out again. We've have rain for the last 3 days here so the skeeters should be out in force. Maybe I can get out tomorrow for a few hours.Got any picks of unpicked morels?

Okay, thank you! How hilly is the land? Do you find them in bunches? Woodticks are bad. The mosquitos are very, very thick. Plus, it is going to be hard to see any morel mushrooms now with all the vegetation. I only found 1 black morel so far, and that was a little over a week ago. I found it an old growth hardwood forest. It was fully grown, so any morels still out there in our area are probably toast due to 5 straight days of 90 degree heat. More recently I have been finding oyster mushrooms. They are really actually good eating, but are starting to get old and burnt too, with lots of bugs and worms. Even if I had known where to look for morels I don't think I would have found many, we just didn't get timely rain this year.I'd have to ask the other half what kind of trees they are.
