Finally started here in Atlanta.
I am new to the forum but have hunted morels for 30 years. Started out young in Martinsville, Indiana. I have hunted for 6 years here in Georgia and have had great luck every year. This batch was found North of Atlanta this morning.
People on fb found some on Big Creek on Saturday and Sunday, which runs from Oconee Co, up to Oglethorpe Co, near Wolfskin Road, east of Athens. I think they were both in the Oglethorpe Co. end of the creek (to the north). The morels they picked were kind of dry looking, a little sunburned. Your best luck now it seems is to the north of I-85, heading towards the mountains. I'd look around Dahlonega, if you're driving back north.
On the eastern side maybe. Atlanta and due north to Rome just getting started. I have been up and down the 75 corridor and hunted “everywhere”. Signs are there and temps are here.
Cobb and Bartow. Red Top Mountain.
Thanks. I'm going to hunt in AL, due west of Rome this weekend. There is a lot of pine over there, and I've not done it there before. In Alabama they *believe* in keeping their National Forests *well-trimmed*, ahem. We'll see how it goes.
I'm sorry, geographic correction: by Oconee Co. above, I *meant* Greene Co. (which is the home of the Oconee Natl. Forest, so I have that excuse, at least). Oconee COUNTY is west of Oglthorpe Co.(with Clarke in between). Sorry...Morels have been found in all of em by now, just not by yours truly...
Due west of Rome might still be a week out. I would focus on just a hair further south but Alabama a little different then Georgia I guess. They will grow when mother nature decides they will. I still think that northern area is a week or so behind still. I have not hunted in Alabama ever myself. My brother just drove through a couple rest areas in Alabama Louisiana and Texas and said that the morels weren’t very good out in that area right now I think that freeze Kinda hurt them.
Thanks. I think I will be a little south of Rome, more like the area around Piedmont, AL, the northern extent of the Talladega Natl Forest, and some south of there. It's a lot of land, with not many people around. It's beautiful there this time of year.
Awesome good luck and may The Great Morel be with you. Don’t for get to post pics. ;-)

Has anyone else had any luck in Bartow County yet?
Hey folks, I’m currently waiting to hear back from an administrator on the site here regarding a north Georgia video I’m trying to post. The video is north Georgia specific (Paulding, Bartow, Polk and Floyd Counties). I understand why the video is getting marked as spam but hopefully they’ll review it and see that it could be beneficial, especially for those having trouble finding the right habitat and trying to find their first morels. So if you’re in north Georgia and would like to see the video, message me and I can send it to you. Hopefully it’ll get approved soon because I think the peak is coming!
If you could message me that video that would be awesome .. out looking now... Following flowing creeks
Alot of the same but near me it seems to be mostly tulip poplars actually.
Oh nice! About to get out and look
