    Well, it's May 1st...There should be plenty of blacks, grays and pecker heads up by now. I made one quick search in Toledo and nothing...Things seem to be waaaay behind. Has anyone had any luck in this neck-of-the-woods?

    The season is unusually late to start....I'm in Monclova and have been out 4 times and have found about a dozen 1-3" greys. I usually find between 300-500 a season around here, so when they're out, I usually find at least 20 to 30 at a minimum every time out.

    My bud has a place up near Manistee, Michigan and he said they've been finding pounds of the black morels up there the last few days.

    Good luck, let me know how you do up there.

    Found these today...I'm about done for the season.

    Solid season, close to 400 morels.

    Ticks, poison ivy, and mosquitoes are bad right now.

    The season started late and then the 80+ degree days shortened the season.

    That's ok....a couple of weeks of hitting the woods every day and I've about got it out of my system.

    Probably found 40 or 50 ticks on me this year, got a bit of poison ivy, and the mosquitoes are out thick.

    I found close to 400....a decent enough season....I enjoy hunting for them in cooler weather though.
