    Hey Everyone!

    Based on our current forecast and the weather we’ve had recently, I’m predicting our first southern find will pop by February 22.

    I could be wrong, but everything seems to be pointing to an early season.

    I pray everyone has a great year!

    Found these today in Danielsville GA. Lots of other small ones. Counted 21 so far. Looks like it’s starting early this year.

    First reported find in the Eastern US that I am aware of...It would be great to see a pic with a date-stamped receipt or a newspaper, for the skeptics.

    Great find! But, I would like to see some documentation.

    All three are in different stages and one looks like it’s been up for quite a while.

    also, that area of Georgia is usually at least a couple weeks behind Augusta.

    please, prove me wrong.

    Yes Sir @pastorj i gotta agree.. yep yep
    now We / i am not a stickler about posting a pic of your Freash New finds
    with a time dated store recipe or news paper..but i would prefer it
    Man this is so important to us all..
    and we don't get our solid information
    that we need , without proff of time and date ...in the pictures
    @Jpuette We do Thank You Much..
    still... we just met you, and have chosen not to put a picture of yourself w your Avatar and thats fine if you never put in a picture of yourself...
    but do please put proof of your findings in with your picture...for all of us..
    i feel the need for the Solid Knowledge.
    Thank You
    from Wade

    I will keep that in mind for future posts. I must say though, as a new member to this online community, it is somewhat disconcerting, on ones first post, to basically be called a liar due to some unwritten “rule”. No worries though. Like I said, believe me or don’t, that is your choice. Photos can also be doctored to make anything seem legit. Good luck in your hunt this year.

    As a new poster I can understand your feelings Jpuette, but believe me these "rules" are universal in these kinds of forums! Just check my avatar. Why do you think I laid those morels on the front page of the paper with the date in plain view? That was to verify my post. I don't resent it. On many web forums it's "pics or it didn't happen"! With as seasonal an activity as this is, it's "pics and a verified date or it didn't happen"!

    I don't remember the guy's name, but I know where it was, south of Birmingham, and I *think* it was the 19th of February. I saved the photos, his name, and the dates. He did not identify the location very precisely, and he *did* have a receipt, from a CVS, with the morels, to show the date. It's not a matter of hate, the information is important and it ought to be verified, pure and simple.

    Yep same guy found them fist several years over the last decade and got shamed for it on several forums for not following the rules. He doesn’t really like rules.....so there’s that. He doesn’t really post his early finds anymore.

    I looked in that area on Saturday. I checked around the Broad River, and all I saw was swamp...
