    Nice Haul Wildshroomer!! I just might have to gas up the mushroom wagon, get the boots out of the closet and hit the woods again on Sat.

    @wildshroomer, I'm really surprised they made it thru this persistent rain.

    Everything in Cumberland and dauphin area is rotted and has been for a week and no new flushes. We had a very short window around here

    I’d rather find rotted ones than none because that at least tells you the area is still productive. My first ever PG aside from my backyard hasn’t produced any for 3 seasons now. It’s an old orchard. When do you just give up on a spot?

    Very well said. The best time to find new spots is now. Orchards are like that Barnacle, they die out, like old elm said time to move on.

    I'd love to go out and hunt for more, but honestly don't know if I have the patience to cover new territory. Any hunters nearby me (Allegheny Cty/Robinson TWP) still finding any?

    I'll be moving to Alabama in August. I have a Soldier who's somewhat interested in morel hunting and I may give him my spot. If he don't take, I'll be more than happy to give it to someone local.

    Took the step kids out 2 times each time a great success. All 4 loved it and were like hound dogs trying to give our spot away.

    Are there hundreds of hunters your way like in Michigan? Been wanting to get clear of all of that. I'm heading over to PA this weekend.
