    The season is coming to an end owing to lack of rainfall at prime time. This Friday/Sat rains may trigger a late batch under cedars but I would not be too hopeful about it. KS/OK border will be where it is at mid/late next week after Saturday's rains.

    I have a cottonwood that blew over end of last summer. How does this tree get seeded with spores? The area is close good mushroom hunting (1/2 mile) - but in last 3 years due to drought and flood no mushrooms have fruited in this area. I have heard there is a morel spore every square inch of the northern hemisphere and spores can stay dormant for years- Is this True? Do I need to bring some fresh mushrooms around this tree and seed it or does this work. I have tried this before and it never worked for me yet - Any suggestions. When I have time I will post a picture of this tree - prolly best one I have ever seen - I know I would drive a 100 miles to hunt this one tree it looks so good why I want to get it seeded.

    I have been looking my ass off for over three weeks and haven’t quite found 100?! Northeast Arkansas sucks!! Used to find tonage in Illinois, this place is brutal!! Once again, you boys don’t know how good you have it in Oklahoma!! You’re killing me!! You were complaining a few weeks ago because you had only found around 1200, you should have your ass kicked Iwon!!

    Found 25 today My season total is around 350 give or take a few (lil more than 5lbs.) Todays finds were surrisingly quite fresh but I believe season is bout to come to an end and especially with the consecutive 80°+ days in the foreast next week. By then all the trees will be fully leave-ed out and that is when Its usually all over anyways. Till next year
