    purple, no native pecans up here in N. Mo. but that is a monster. I get into big old growth forest. Very few areas left anymore more that have not been cut. Used to be lots of elm like that up until the 70's.

    Wow VC nice haul man. You always seem to bring in some good loads. I might have to scroll back thru the old post to see if i can remember what county you hunt this time of the year??? I searched all over Garfield and Logan county yesterday and not a single one. I don't think i was far enough South yet... Everything i saw was really dry, looking like Ks. I pray we get rain soon, or there wont be much of a season again in central Ks. Good luck to everyone this year. Hope all of us find huge sack fulls.. Be safe..

    lwon: Very nice cluster shot. That is why we walk the acres - to find that kind of aah haa moment. I will try to take and post some pics of my harvest tomorrow morning. Might have to use a flash as I plan to be early.

    Thanks guys :) - I found those in Central OK (near OKC). Believe it or not there were many stumps when we arrived so someone has been scouting the area before we did (but obviously did not look well enough ;) or either came before the rains on Tue). Tomorrow I'll take a break and perhaps look around some easy spots along the road. The most beautiful morel I found today was actually this morning (and was as large as my hand):

    8balljana: It is a private property where at least another person hunts in every single year. I've scouted some of my other spots and most are totally dry with no signs of morels. This year has been very strange so far: Lots of areas that produced abundant crops the last 2 years have few isolated specimens while spots that did not produce much the last 2 years have clusters. I am partly blaming these 80+ degree days we had. I am hoping that we are still early in the season and that the rains next week will materialize. On Sunday, I will go hunt on 2 other private properties (that usually produce) with a friend and will see. After that, all my best spots will have been exhausted; Thus there is no spots left for me to share but new ones to explore. I hear you about the safety problem foraging here in OK (wild hogs, feral or aggressive dogs, hunters etc) and usually go accompanied in these private spots - Last year I start finding them on April 7-8th and the year before even later than that (April 12th) so who knows what this year will bring.

    old guy has most likely answered your question Iwonagian as the greys from last week become yellows. By the way what kind of tree produced those nice yellows? I see oak leaves on the ground,I think. But Oak rarely is good.

    The cluster was indeed under a cedar patch along a trail. There were some black jack oaks on the other side of the trail (where indeed no morels were found) - Thus, I assume the wind must have tucked those leaves under the cedars.

    Got out for about an hour this morning and checked my known good spot. 1st year I picked there I found 75+ shrooms, then the next year I only found 17, then last year I found 20ish, and today I only found 13... Wish we would have another year like the first year I picked in that spot!

    I always find a good handful right near the base of this tree. What kind of tree is it?

    Looks like an American Elm to me.
