I found these lil blacks today in Oakland County. There were about 20 or so total....
It was in an area that hits early every year. The pickers were on a south facing slope under elm trees
Great find! You get those blacks under tulip poplars?
Yes. Large, adult trees.
Heading up today from KY to fish Lake St. Clair for a couple of days. Our season is over and it appears yours is just coming in. I’ve hunted popples in N MI for blacks before. What trees/terrain do I look for in S MI? I like how your leaf litter is usually flat due to the snow cover. Makes the blacks much easier to see compared to KY’s fluffy leaf litter.
Tulip poplars in south Michigan generally produce the blacks. Dead elms and apple trees produce the grays and blondes. Depending on where you’re going they’re all just getting going
Near Roseville. Same in KY, I find most of my blacks in poplar and pignut hickory areas, usually with a mix of both. Thanks!
Found a nice patch of grays / some yellows bleached from sun in grassy area by some elms! About 2 dozen!! Oakland county is poppin
Found a couple dozen blacks today in Oakland County
Found this and a handful of other blondes today in Oakland County
Got out this morning and found a couple dozen blondes and grays in Wayne county...are there any indicators to know when it's time to pick them? Size? Shape? Happy hunting! Also is this other photo a beefsteak mushroom?
those leaves in your pic look like aspen? The tree in the background looks the same. Am I wrong? Still trying o figure out the black ones.
False morel some eat but not suposed to
What he said! ^^^^^ Don't do it!
Gotta love those new spots!! With all the rain we’ve been getting they were just showing up all over. Love when that happens, this area is just starting too. Going back in a couple days after the warm up tomorrow, hopefully no one beats me there
Ya know what, maybe I’m wrong.... the bark goes from rough at the bottom few feet or so and transition to all smooth bark. Just looked it up and you are correct. It’s a Bigtooth Aspen grove.
I searched all over those trees in 2 very large areas and only found that couple dozen in one little section of one of the areas. Very odd. I really dislike hunting blacks because it’s so difficult in Oakland County.
I kill it with grays and blondes.....
Well, I went back to that Aspen grove today and found about a dozen more blacks. I’ve found two very distinctly different types of blacks but I’m not sure if there are more than one species.... I’ll post pics in a few....
There were tons of people in the woods this evening.....
How’s everyone doing so far?
The caps are not only shaped differently but the thickness is starkly different. The morel in the top pic has a very thin cap and stem while the one in the bottom pic has a thick, deeply pitted cap- more like a grey or blonde. Odd....
I believe the one in the top pic is just more mature than the one in the bottom pic. They get that black edge on the ridges of the shroom as it matures and the honeycomb opens up more also.
