They were near the edge of the timber so could get more sunlight.

I'm not saying I don't believe black shrooms around here... but I don't believe they grow here :-D

I've consistently heard black morels grow just south of Springfield.

First and only I've ever found were in S IL, Johnson Cty. Thought they were burnt up shrooms to start, then quickly smiled upon losing my black morel virginity :mrgreen:

Hello fellow foragers,
If you are looking for black morels, you need to hunt in areas where a controlled burn has been. If the property owners had burned in the last year, maybe two, you'll likely find blacks. Its been my experience. I found some two years ago west of Peoria.
I agree with you all- maybe some early greys and foxgloves out there, but the coming weeks should prove bountiful-
Happy Hunting-
TK
