Well, I have been watching ground temperatures all this week, and for St. Louis and as well as almost everywhere else in Missouri, the ground temperature has been above 46. Which would be a good thing for morel's to be out by this weekend, and next week will hopefully be a good hunting week.

I am going out to check tonight, in Jefferson county, hopefully I find one. I'll report back here if I do, to let you guys know.

My girlfriend supposedly found one while walking to her car, but no proof.. We'll just have to see :)

There was also one found in Illinois. I was scanning their forums and seen a post with a picture, had the date - 4/11/2013. It was a little gray.

I didn't find anything in Jefferson county.. But I'm going to looking everyday this week in Washington County.. I should find some soon, considering people seem to be finding them everywhere else but the Stl area :/

Went out today to a guaranteed to find some spot that requires a boat to access in central Missouri area. Last 15 years family has pulled out at least 25 lbs a year some years 50 lbs and didn't find one today looked for several hours. Still a little early but they'll be making their appearance within the next week. I did find a nice antler shed tho :-D

Checked in South St. Louis county and then drove a little further south to Jefferson county and still nothing. Everything was on the dry side. I suspect we need a little rain. The Mayapples are really up in some places though.

This is going to sound crazy, but here goes:

Was wondering if anyone had any ideas of public land that is supposed to be good hunting grounds? I know, a hunter never divulges his spot, not asking for that! Here's the deal though, I don't even like mushrooms!!! Honestly I just like to find them. (I swear! You would have to pay me to willingly eat a mushroom.) I would even bring you the haul for you to enjoy if anyone would help me out.
I bet you're all suspicious, but I would appreciate any ideas!
Thanks!

Mushroomsarah ... Bush Wildlife, Riefsnider in warrenton, or pretty much anywhere along the Katie Trail .... Pretty much anywhere. Look for them, look hard, check defferent spots, and once you find them guard them with your life! :D
