Soil temps look great. Looking through fields, along stream banks and southern facing slopes. Tons of dead wood in various stages of decay but still nothing. So sad. I am off to look again. Any hints and good wishes appreciated!

Decided to take a walk in the woods and found 19 edible morel mushrooms in an hour. I also went out the following day and found another 10 morel mushrooms. 2 day total of 29 morel mushrooms. Not bad for a few hours worth of hunting. Morels do grow in SC but you have to know where to look. Happy hunting!!!

Me! But I am a newbie. I am in the upstate. You?
I started last year, so far it's been pretty disappointing for me this year. I'm in Atlanta, but hunt mostly in NE GA around Athens. Going over to Northeast Alabama this weekend. I would think that the "tip" of SC, where it hits GA., would be prime hunting. Nobody much on this forum, it seems. Same is true of Alabama - people seem to hunt morels only in the area of Birmingham.

Would you mind saying what county you were in?

If you want advice on hunting em, I would join the Georgia Morel Hunters group on facebook and take a look at the posts there. Lots of useful info, and many posters, mostly from central and north, northeastern Georgia. There are recent films of people hunting, showing the kind of habitats that work for around this area. The Georgia Mushrooming group on fb is very valuable, too.

Nobody hunts morels in S Carolina?
New to Upstate, trying to figure out the specifics of how and when to hunt morals here. Formerly NE Central Ohio.
I moved here from Ohio. I'm in Greenville County as well. Am I too late?
Also formerly from
Ohio, trying to lead the growing cycle here in upstate. Know nothing for this area as yet. Out looking this morning about 1.5 HR. No signs found
Looking for advice.

I'm also from NE Ohio... Raised in Medina, County. I find most of mine by popular, sycamore, and ash trees. Not alot of elms around. Look in creek bottoms right now. Yellows are up now, so the season is winding down. I start looking for tulip morels around the last week of March on south facing slopes under tulip poplars.
