    In extreme sek is the only place in United States with thousands of acres of public land that was strip mined for coal years ago. Google "big brutus"

    Not the only place. In fact there’s one in my state that is 4+ times the size of big Brutus but you are right that old strip mines are a great place for morels!

    beautiful area, lots of access, looked very shroomy, but like i said , it was very dry that year, and i have come to the conclusion my time is better spent where i know the area better, and besides i just hate them black snakes hanging from trees and i live in AZ and have bird dogs, so i see plenty of rattle snakes, but shroom season is my time away from them

    Huntergatherer the pits kicked my butt last time I was there to. Never saw any snakes though. I agree on knowing an area really helps, and the pits are really confusing.
