Went out today to some of my early spots that produced about 10 lbs of black early last year an no luck yet. With the warmer rains coming this week an warmer day an night temps next weekend should be a good start. But will be out everyday from here on out checking my early spots. Good luck fellow hunters let the games begin
Was out in Fairview today as well checking my early spots today an nothing. Ground is plenty moist just need the warmer days an notes. May apples are around 2-4 inches on southern areas. Still thinking next weekend or following week
Timber: elms are not the only producer. Elms an ash are the top 2. But oak, an sycamore can produce as well. South facing hills will produce first followed by inner low lands then north facing hills. With the rain an warm temps this upcoming week. Next weekend should be a good start. I have some areas in Belleville an Fairview that produce early every year usually a good abundance of blacks an still nothing yet
I knew dead oaks and apple trees produced but I didn't know about sycamore and ash trees. I've been checking morelhunters.com sight map to see what's been reported and I'm thinking it's blacks they're seeing. I go up to my parents house in Wisconsin in May cuz we find them like crazy up there and the morel festive is pretty cool up there in muscoda which claims to be the morel capital of the world lol. I appreciate the advice and new information. I'm not really trying to do it down here for fun and then I'll collect everything I need up in Wisconsin. If anybody needs help I'm willing to help.
Went out today after work for a short walk with my dog to a spot that always produces. Found 3 in as many minutes not really even looking hard. Tomorrow I’m going out for real, but just wanted to say that THE HUNT IS ON!!!. Good luck everyone!
Wondering if the morels are going to come up this weekend? I have found about 200 hundred in all different places around the area over the last few weeks..Then the cold spell hit so wondering if more are going to pop? Someone told me they keep popin until June does anyone know if this is true?
