    Things are starting to get a little messy and scattered on the message board. I Wanted a clean and easy to find thread for people in and around the St. Louis area to report. Right now, it's still a little early here, but hopefully anyone in the STL area can report here on their findings or non findings and what types of locations they have been hunting.

    The Saint Louis chapter of the Missouri Mycological Society will hold our yearly "Morel Madness" foray the weekend of April 20th, at Cuivre River State Park. It is a three day event, with camping in cabins and most meals provided.

    I went out to one of my hot spots today in South St. Louis County and didn't find a thing. Is anyone else finding any in the St. Louis area yet?

    Hah, sorry Beecee, I didn't notice the other STL link. I've been quick linked and checking this one every day since the 8th. Hmmm, maybe I didn't notice the other one because this one was started 4 days BEFORE the one you are referring to. I'm sensing confusion issues which is what I was trying to avoid when I started this thread, so I guess I failed. It must have been the overly confusing title :wink: (sorry, couldn't resist).

    Anyway, it doesn't matter to me where we post, I'm just looking to hear the good word from other hunters in and around the St. Louis area. I was hoping to avoid confusion, but if I have to check two places for info, I think I can manage.

    Best of luck

    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.

    We were out all day yesterday and only found four...one smaller than a dime, the others less than two inches. It was great getting out and looking but we could only find a few oysters to hold us over :p

    Went out today to my spot in Jefferson Co. Nothing yet! We need a little more rain and some nice mild nights. I will say though the only I found was 6 ticks in about 30 minutes in the woods! It will be a banner year for ticks.

    Ive checked Ste Gen, Arnold, Desoto, Poplar Bluff, and Cape all in the last week still no luck yet but I will say. I have to agree this is going to be a BAD year for ticks. Every time a tick bites me it leaves a red itch dot for at least a full week usually longer. And I had about 8 ticks already this year stuck to me and must have picked off 10 or more from my clothes. Man I need to look closer, my averages suck. LOL Happy hunting. The iching is worth the reward.

    Feral Boy, I won't be able to make it to the "Morel Madness" festival this weekend (http://www.momyco.org/newsletters/earthstar_111_13.pdf), but thanks for posing it here. I had no idea they did things like this around the St. Louis area. I hope some people who attend report back on how it was and what the mushroom hunting was like this weekend. I plan on heading back out in the South County area on Sunday. Hopefully this rain will help things along.

    Ive checked my STL and STC spots several times. even took a road trip up north to check some spots.. NOTHING. 20 plus years of hunting says its still slightly early. but with the all the rain, and the emerging heat , HOPEFULLY WE ALL FIND SOME!!

    personal opinions:

    grounds good.
    flora looks good.
    ground temp hasn't been warm long enough.

    Today is a nice day, but cold again Friday night :/ Really quiet annoying when you have these nice 80 degree days, then its 30 the next. We all know they are already out, but its still to early.. Friday's cold weather isn't going to help any.
