Was hoping to get lucky finding some early season blacks in the city (Columbus) but no such luck. I did however stumble upon a patch of some ramps—an excellent consolation prize!
Picked 6 today enough for a sandwich haha and left some others to grow and if we get rain spots gonna explode I believe. Ground temp was 49-50 in the couple spots I checked. Good news the morels are starting here in far north central Ohio. Bad news it’s drier than a popcorn fart in the woods and the ones I picked to were already drying out due to lack of ground moisture. We’re 5” behind last year and 3” behind two years ago in precipitation in the area I’m hunting. I’m gonna give it til Wednesday Thursday and look again and hopefully we get the rain there calling for. View attachment 37302 View attachment 37303 View attachment 37304
