    Good Luck! Southern Ohio is starting to get some action. Hoping to see some great flushes and big hauls from everyone this year!

    Nice to hear. Seems a bit early. I'm sure we have 3 weeks or so up north here. May have to take a trip down south. Not sure how that would go over with the stay at home order. Our company just shut down for 2 weeks tho so plenty of time available.

    Are there any good wildlife areas or public ground in the Dayton area. I dont really know any landowners in that area.

    Thanks for the tip Denliger. Checked their website and it says they close at 6pm. Didnt know state parks closed at any certain time. I still think it's a bit early even for that area. I'll keep my eyes on the progression maps. Thanks again tho.

    Hello all!

    New here and somewhat new to foraging. Anyone have any good areas near Columbus? I have tried a few places over the past two years and have never found the Morels I am looking for, found Ramps at Slate Run but thats about it. Any help knowing where I am allowed to forage and where might be good places to try would be helpful for a newby.

    Thanks!

    Delaware state wildlife area would be a good bet, but its probably a bit early for there. The Great Morel web sit has a progession map that would help you to know when they are finding them in the area. Good luck this year. Keep hunting hard and you'll find what you're looking for.

First woods picture is of area blacks were picked. Went to southern Ohio Shawnee state forest down by Portsmouth for the first time yesterday and could only find one small 2-3” yellow. Tulip trees are just starting to pop there buds so should be good down there in 7 days I figure. Plus ALOT of locals were out hunting too. Found a nice deer shed and a box turtle emerging from soil which is good ground temp sign. Going to be out today checking on the dozen I left in woods here up north close to home and hopefully more have sprouted. Good luck everyone

    Nice. I can hear them sizzling now. Been having to get my fill from the store. Baby Bellas. Have only found about a dozen blacks in 25 years of hunting northern Ohio, and that was during the big yellow season. They were huge like the yellows.
