    I hunted Sunday and Tuesday and came up with about 4 dozen yellows. All found in the river bottoms.

    I'm just north of there and I haven't found a fresh one for a few days.....

    Good year though, over 150 just in my small creek bottom.

    Talked to a guy yesterday that said he was still finding fresh ones.

    I've never searched montauk - let me know if you have any luck!

    If you don't find morels, at least you'll get some nice trout!

    Dark star - we need to hang out! I am a deadhead, I'm a former '79 Westy bus owner, and a mushroom fanatic! I live just North of the Texas/Phelps county line. Maybe I'll see you at Montauk ;)

    Just got back from Montauk. No trout due to inexperience, but did find 4 morels about softball size. They were a couple days old and soaked from the rain. I still don't know how to add a picture to these posts, but will post one in the pictures section.

    found a patch of about 20 fresh ones yesterday on a north facing hill. i also found at least 150 huge ones that were all way to far gone, they were all crumbly and some were collapsing on themselves. every one i found i crumbled in my hands and broadcasted in the area, i dunno if this really does anything but i can't wait to find out next year!


    probably 1/3 of the bad mushrooms were on the north facing hill, the rest were on a south facing hill.
    think it's about done here
