    Hi guys, I found my first morels of 2017 last Monday, baby Yellows in Hancock County last Monday in my super early spot. I took my 4 year old to see the patch today(Monday 4-3-17) and figured we would make a video while we were there. This patch is off to a great start and I think it is an indication of a great season ahead, unless of course the weather gets unfavorable.
    I forgot to take something with a date on the 27th(they were still pure white, one day old I figure) so I swung by on the 29th to get a picture with a March date since this is only the second time I have ever found morels in March.

    Good luck to everyone this year!

    I'm in Licking County. Plan to go in the next couple days and look around. I've been in Africa all of March and was a bit worried I was going to miss this season!

    We hunted yesterday in Brush Creek State Forest in Adams County, near Peebles. Approx. GPS coordinates are: 39'01"28.68 N - 83'20'29.50 W and 83'19"55.02

    I hunted the low areas along creeks and my friends hunted up high on the flat parts of hills. My friends found nine small black morels, each about an inch tall. This is the first they found this year.

    This is the second time I looked along the creeks. I found nothing both times. I just seems too early because it hasn't started to "green up" in the lower areas. Typical spring wildflowers were out, but not proliferous. I think we're a week early in this area.

    Found 23 gray morels around the base of sycamore tree in dry leaf litter and thin patchy grass. They were 15 feet from the road. These were found near Brush Creek State Forest in Adams County (Peebles/ Locust Grove). Approx. GPS coordinates are: 39'01"28.68 N - 83'20'29.50 W and 39'01"28.68 N - 83'19"55.02. They were found on a 72 Adams County morels - 09 April 2017.jpg degree day in near-full sunlight. The only shade was the sycamore tree.

    They are really starting to come out good. I hit a nice patch that had about 70 out of the 97 total we got yesterday. Allen/Hancock counties. Was very surprised to see the yellows already. I dunno if they are all going to come out at the same time this year but it seems like that may be the case around here. IMG_0426.JPG

    Thank you. About two weeks ago the lake wind was keeping it a little cooler clear down to just past Findlay, nearly 10 degrees for a couple days. I think that is responsible for where I have been sticking to flushing these out. I got another 92 today. I forgot the date in the picture but what is in the bowl is from that picture above. There was a couple really big yellows I found tonight that really surprised me. Stictly Allen County this evening.

    Hi all,
    I'm now Morelseeeker instead of Morelseeker had to do so in order to re register. Any who I found half frees, grays, one tiny tulip, and some big whites on Monday in west Central OH. I didn't find any blacks which is surprising since it seemed like a good year for them. Maybe someone beat me to them. So many people are out now even on private land. When I ask permission I've been getting other people hunt here but I suppose it's alright if you want to go ahead and try.
