    Got it... was going to head up that way tomorrow for a few hours of hunting if you'd be interest in teaming up. Good luck

    Oh man! I love seeing pics like that! Never viewed anything like that in person, but I'm always hoping. And like someone else wrote, I use them for eye training. See how many I can spot in the pic.

    How does it look in the Newnan north to Forest Park area? Is the season done there? I have a few spots in those areas I haven't hit this season.

    00100dPORTRAIT_00100_BURST20200327151744533_COVER.jpg IMG_20200327_151625.jpg Checking in from Carrollton, GA. Over the past few days I've found my first morels. This is my first season looking and I've managed to find about 45 or so on my property. I think I missed some of the early flush in the low lying area, as those I did find were older and nearly spoiled surrounded by lots of half-eaten hollow stems peaking up through the leaves. That being said, I am finding several smaller specimens at higher elevations in the same area.

    They are delicious! I'm pretty amazed by the unique flavor.

    Congrats, and the need to find more only gets worse, or better depending on how you look at it.

    First time going out and looking today. Checked a few different spots here in Augusta, GA and no luck. Thinking I might be a little late this year.

    The family and I were finding Morels in Augusta as early as March 14th (no proof... we ate them) and today we only found four of them all shriveled and dried up in the woods. (Again... no proof) just thought I'd let you know. Keep checking, but I think the ground temps are getting too high.

    Thanks! Working at the hospital today but might try and get out and do some exploring tomorrow. I’ve never personally been out in Augusta Looking for them so I didn’t want to waste too much time looking if they’ve already passed. Thanks again!

    found 5 back on march 24th - I'm beginning to think that i got lucky and caught all there was to find in a very short season here in my area (Woodstock, Ga).
    ...do you all agree?

    I am a total newbie so please be nice....:) I would assume there are no morels still around in May - correct? I will also assume I can plan to start looking in Feb. of next year in GA? I am excited already - thanks.

    You are correct Mary. Look forward to mid/late February or early March next year depending on the weather. Just keep an eye on these forums and you will get a better idea of when to get out and look.
