Congratulations once again! How many did you gather last year?
454 was all I got lol
I left so many today filled my pail n bag I had on me was still seeing good ones on my way out.
I am a little confused...how can that be?
Last yr they were starting to pop up n then we had a major dry spell n got hot. Think that killed many of them off. Plus this yr I found them where I've looked many times before n never found them. I also gained around 600 ta 700 acres of the best morel ground ever this yr. Tons of dead mature elms on the edges of fields or on the right slope with the best dirt and dam thorn bushes so thick that only the craziest person (me lol) would go into them. This is only my 5th yr hunting morels I'd like to think I finally came into my prime and understand the morels alot better even though they still can throw a cure ball at me all the time. Found 5 under a barkless elm today. The only rule about morels is there is no rules lol.
Excellent explanation, thanks. It is hard to believe you will ever have a year like this year or last year again.
My wife showed me a bunch of Morel mushrooms she had found on our camp property the other day. I am 63 years old and grew up here near the Canadian border and never gave a thought to them until my wife told me what they are worth! I am looking forward to harvesting a bunch this weekend. How long does the season last in northern NY?
Putting up with your pics? I'm in awe of your pics! Like I said before, this should be archived! Let a mod or admin, whoever has the wherewithal, take every one of your posts out of this thread and preserve it as a "sticky" or "pinned" thread!
Down here in the Mohawk Valley I find it hard to find harvest able morels after May. But this year I might give it an extra week.
Thanks shroomseacher. I'm gonna go give it a try after the holiday weekend. I walked by a many good looking morels Thursday.
What a great day to be in the woods. Cool air, some wind, no bugs, sunshine, what more could you ask for?
I scored a dozen or so real nice morels but most were too far gone.
Now for the obligatory annual declaration.......What a weird year!
I was surprise to run into some hot chicks whilst on my walk.
I agree!!!! So weird. I finally went out again. Northern Otsego county. 1400-1600’. I put 7-8 miles. PG and new ground. Found 25 all spent. Found a bunch I first left up there 3 weeks ago. Every other one I found was solo and looked to be just as old and big.
Zero signs of new growth.
Mean while Saratoga county finding plush firm softball size. Not sure if this is me throwing in towel or not!
Hey guys! Had some luck when I was back in Ohio and living in wny (Buffalo) now. Absolutely no luck finding these things around here.
Would love to chat and/or link up with someone from the area that wouldn’t mind showing me the ropes. I work a crazy amount so time is usually limited, but I really miss getting out into the woods and having my heart race when I come across a patch of tasty fungi.
Nice looking chicks there Geo.
Very nice Mrmorel
I'm gonna give it one more go Tuesday but don't think they be good alot are on the edge here too.
went today found 4 pounds worth. even found a group of blonds just starting.
Found some nice big morels this May but the last couple times I went out looking there was none to be found. Anybody know if the season is pretty much over in the mid-hudson valley?
I first hunted Morels with my Father, Grandfather and uncles in 1974. I have tried to
bank as much knowledge as I could. My final thought about this is that Morels don't give a damn what I think. I still have more questions than answers. Shroom on my friend.
What is the one in the middle picture? Edible? I found a couple nice ones like that a few weeks ago here.
