Ready for the season, if any one needs a hunting buddy let me know! This will be my second season here. Going back home at the end of April to hunt there for a few weeks. I'll be sure and update my findings for sodak here. Good luck to all!

Hoping they pop this year. It has been so dry. That heavy snow helped but some good rains would help even more. Still have plenty in the freezer but still ready to go!

Very very excited for my 2nd season hunting in the hills this year! Had some friends on here show me some tips last year for hunting the hills and did a LOT of driving around, looking at all sorts of maps, including topo maps and I think it will pay off this year! Also have some ideas of where to hunt from this last year's fire areas that were prescribed burns. Just saw today that the first morel was found in Douglas County in Nebraska where I am originally from and normally within a week maybe 2 weeks if it stays warm here, is when we might start finding some morels. The 50 and 60 degree days will definitely help in warming the ground up! Will definitely be going to my first place i found morels in about a week maybe 2 and checking soil temps! Good luck all! Very excited for this season! Can't come soon enough!

Would love to go hunting this year with you again. Have some new ideas for hunting. Remember where we went last year just east of hill city? Well they did a major prescribed burn there and that is going to be my first place to check out and see if theres gonna be a possibly of some good shrooms there.

Hello from Ohio. I live in the rural hills of Ohio and have grown up hunting morels for all my 66 years. Five years ago my daughter moved to your great state of South Dakota, in Pierre and misses the annual mushroom dinners. We visit her at least once annually. This year we are coming in mid May. we'd love to hunt some morels, probably in the black hills. I have no idea about the rules on public land or where to look. Any hints or help would be a great gift and appreciated. I'm nit looking to raid anyone's area, just want a place to look without getting in trouble. Is mid May even within season? I also am an avid turkey hunter and like hearing birds gobble or even hunt them. Never hunted SD, but many other states. We will be thankful for any kind of information.

I'm from Ohio as well the mushroom hunting out here isn't as good as back home but you can still find them I would suggest get out and look for places that were burnt a year or two ago

Biggest tip I can give you for the Black hills is that you cannot hunt in any of the major parks (Wind Cave, Custer State Park, Jewel Cave) for May, higher elevations are key. Definitely follow this forum as we will post where to find them as far as what elevation and when. Hoping we get some good moisture through spring. That will help a lot if we do. Hunting in the hills is all about the elevation and timing. For example, early in the season it is not smart to look at elevations close to 6000ft but it is smart to look at the very low 5000's and even dipping into 4000s. Prime temp for soil is around 50 when they start popping so take a good thermometer with you such as a meat thermometer that will read the lower Temps. Good luck and happy hunting!
