Picking season can't get here soon enough. I have been hunting for two years, but I only found a few last year. I was so proud of my 20 mushrooms. After looking at post on this forrum I realized that I have alot to learn. I live in edmond any pointers will be appreciated.

Happy 2014 everyone. We are getting close so I thought I'd check in and say hi. I'm sure the board will start buzzing in a month!! Morel Belle, stick close to Rivers or creek beds. Elm is the most popular tree around here to hunt, but I have luck near cedars and cottonwoods too... I like hopping from spot to spot, if I spend an hour somewhere trying without anything to show, I usually go somewhere else. Sometimes a perfect looking area can have few or no morels.

Hopefully the synoptics will reverse in February and March to a wetter weather pattern. I truly enjoyed my 2000+ morels find on my first year hunting on Okie soil last year and plan on finding as many in 2014 to share them around (i.e., for free)...as "the fun is in the hunt".
The next 15 days will be prime for erratic wildfires across the state, which is generally good for morels- The lack of rain, however, isn't. Thou shall see and fingers crossed-

If we can keep the above average rainfall I think it will be a great year

and to add to Nate's list of trees I seem to do good around persimmon, bois d'arc,and catalpa and really most popular trees, but hey with morels you never really can tell.

How to change my profile picture?
To change your profile image please go to gravatar.com create an account and add your photo.

This should answer your first question copied directly out of the faq
As for the second question im around the ada area and the earliest morel I can remember finding was March 12th last year but as for a prime season it varies year to year cause of factors like temperature and moisture , usually id say around late March and early April though

I have changed my profile picture. It's a Oklahoma sunset. I am a proud okie. Things I love include: sunsets, fishing, hunting , picking blackberries and musidine berries, and last but not least Morel hunting.

If you have added your email already then hover your mouse over your profile image in the upper right corner and it should bring up the option add an image, so if you click on that it brings up options where you want to get your image from and click where the photo is whether online or your computer.

Hope this helps

Im glad were getting this snow lately at least it allows the ground to absorb the moisture instead of it just running off, it also allows for some easier rabbit hunting
