Here in the southwest things look primed but dry, lots of wildflowers, dandelions and big ramps. Im going to start looking hard and doing some travel to areas that have had more precip after the middle of the week. There definitely have to be some up somewhere at this point, just trying not to trample the woods to much yet!
Went out after work found a bunch of little ones...I went right to a tree where I found a bunch last year and there they were, the tinyest morels I've ever seen and there was a pile of them!! Didn't take but a few seconds to find them...can't wait for heat and some more rain.......
Drove south into iowa , found four pounds. Large yellow and grays.. Jerky farmer was waiting at my c ar took all of them and most of my rear end off. so no pictures today. Now i know how the indians must have felt.glad concretemans finding them, your the new shroomgod! Keep your eyes open i'm heading north
Drove down to the state line yesterday, surprisingly drier than my home territory in spite of an inch more rain. I didn't see much, but did thankfully find a new area to hunt that looks really promising so not a complete bust. Made a stop closer to home in an area that's always held moisture well and produced early and saw 40-50 1/2 inchers during a 30 minute walk.
Speaking of bust, thanks a million to whoever busted out my rear windshield in the Blue Earth area, I hope karma eats your lunch.
In regard to hunting morels on private land, you must get permission from the landowner to access. I am a landowner and our family hunts mushrooms on our land. It's pretty disturbing when morel hunters help themselves without asking. I understand why the "jerky farmer" was upset, and I think you would be too if someone walked into your yard and picked vegetables from your garden. Please be considerate.
Morel lady says " I am a landowner". The indians nsaid they were lanowners. We live on a planet, you think u own a piece of it, the govt can come in any time and take it from you. you did not plant those mushrooms , they blew in on the wind. your mine, mine , mine attitude is greedy. it is places like yours i like to trespass best. See you on lakota territory ignorant beach
Ok kids let's play nice. If you want to get Bucky just start bitchin at me. I'll tell you where the bear shits in the woods! And what comes outta it. Native pride. End of story! If you want to learn from one that's the best thing you can do. And make sure it's a elder. No I'm not but enough said
