    Well morel season almost upon us fellow hunters. Ur this post for your updates an finds. Lady yr I pulled around 65 pounds. Was a great year. Hoping this yr to be better. We had a lot more moisture this yr. I've had the itch for a while however I've been able to tame it with the last 2 jars I have dehydrated from last year. Fried some up last nite on a steak with some onions an pepper. yummmm. Well hunters good luck to everyone this year. If anyone wants to do some hunting together let me no. Always love hunting with true hunters

    Sounds good. I'm in illinois near bethalto. Most of my private hunting areas are on my side of river but have been checking out some spots on ur side. Maybe we can meet up an hit some new areas together. I'm a business owner so I like to do most of my hunting during the days when most people are at work. I'm usually in the woods as soon as sun comes up. Let me no if your interested in hitting the woods together. When the season starts. I no it's still early. Next week weather looks great after this incoming rain. I predict next weekend they should be starting. I'm Gona start hitting the woods Monday looking for the blacks that pop early

    We should see some shrooms worth hunting in the next 3-5 days around KC. I figure we's about 7 days early this year.

    There is no year in the thread title, but I assume people are using this for St. Louis area finds for 2015. Anyway, I went out for about an hour today in South St. Louis County and found 1 grey and one yellow both about 3" tall. I was in the middle of the woods on top of a hill, maybe even slightly North East facing, but it was still getting plenty of sunshine. They were both very fresh.

    Got out to west stl county for about an hr and a half monday evening, found enough to make a wonderful morel pizza for dinner. Most were found on the edges of a clearing, some under the scattered trees in the clearing, all near dying elms

    Nice! Found about a pound myself. Eastern Jefferson County. Same spot as last year right behind my parents house around cedar trees, rocky as heck. Weird area.

    Hard question to answer but kinda. I've been hitting some of my places for 7 years straight and know exactly which tree's they grow on over a 10mile span of woods. There is a ton of small elms and maples in the area's but they didnt seem to mind which tree's they were growing near if that helps.
