    First find of the season! Four yellows, all under an almost dead Apple, hillside, southern exposure. Checked a couple of other favorite proven spots to no avail. Also had one tick crawling upon my worldly being. Does seem a little dry. Good Luck and enjoy the hunt.

    Hey Geo, another season is upon us, i'm going to check a spot that is usually early and been a good predictor for me but is on its last legs so I won't know if its a little early yet or just run out of steam. Oh well I will post results.

    Pennsylvania board reporting lots of ticks this year rear.

    Found 6 yellows today. 5 under a half dead apple and 1 under an Ash. All too small to harvest. The ones I found yesterday were also small. Tough hunting this early, the small ones are nearly invisible, I cringe to think of the ones that were crushed underfoot. Next weekend is going to be better, unfortunately I will be out of town. Both my finds have been on the outskirts of Utica. Good luck and enjoy the hunt. Geo

    On Saturday (5-11) after several hours of hiking, I found a smallish yellow in Little Falls under an ash. Yesterday 5 good sized ones(and two tiny ones) in about 10 minutes. Funny, they were all under honeysuckle bushes, but there were dead elm, ash and old apple near by. Except for two they were not found together but 5 or more yards apart at least. I was walking along an old hedge row type place near Clark Mills, Westmoreland.

    I have a friend in Rome who has found lots of greys, maybe about 100. Went to walk the dog and came back with a basketful. Naww, I don't think it's too early, but we're not finding them.

    Was out of commission for the past eight days but went out this morning. Found 148 yellows, many of them prime specimens. Both under ash and apple. Found 44 under an apple tree that teased me last year with a too far gone find. Walked quite a bit but spotting them was relatively easy due to their size and coloring. Some I didn't harvest due to them being too far gone. It was a good day! Got to go and cook up a steak to go with my morels. Good luck and enjoy the hunt. Geo

    Why thank you misskimmie. Do you have a sister that works at a lumber yard? Regardless, glad to hear of your success and hope it only gets better. Enjoy the hunt. Geo

    Geo, no sister there. My husbands family hails from Long Island. BTW I'm being treated to a birthday dinner tonight at a nice restaurant that features locally sourced foods (The Taylor and the Cook on Baggs Square Utica) They have fiddleheads and ramps on the menu. The chef agreed to sautee the morels I found today. Steak, morels, ramps, fiddleheads and an aged Madeira. Life is good!
