    Must be nice just to have a place to pick them, and not have to hunt for them?! I hope you guys know how good you have it?! ;-)

    They have it so good because of years of research and 100s of miles of boots on the ground. You get out of it what you put into it

    I can relate to all the boots on the ground, did that years ago back in Illinois! The point is, the ground is only going to produce what it’s going to produce no matter where you’re at, and obviously, it produces pretty well in Oklahoma! These guys have the same timbre now to hunt year after year, and they know where everything grows at, so it’s pretty much a no contest. Don’t go raising your eyebrow to me fella. Anybody can find mushrooms if they’re in the timber?! At least I can

    Isn’t the growing season about soil moisture and temp?? I’d like to think on a warming trend, these puppies will really pop!!! NE Okla has some really choice moisture in the soil...it’s just cold as hell !!!!

    That my fellow morel pickers is where you can find a load, under a dead elm with the bark still on the dead tree. However after the tree has been dead for more than 2 seasons the likelihood of a morel find declines significantly. Best times for me has been the season following the death of the elm either natural or a cut stump and the next year after. I have found "shrooms in MN, IA, IL, IN and MI. Been hunting over 25 years. I have found yellows, greys, blacks, half frees and even the dreaded false morel. It's been a great hobby. I really enjoy being in the woods in spring. I also hunt oyster, chicken of the woods, hen of the woods, and lobsters but the small black morel is the king mushroom for taste. Grows on poplar tree roots in northern states and rocky mountain slopes.

    Nate, Nice Haul. Nice picture. No BS. Did you get those on cottons or elm or a mixture of stuff?

    KB, a mixture. The first day it was predominantly cottonwood/cedar mix. The second day was more elm.
