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.
