    What is the earliest anyone has ever found morels in upstate NY? When is everyone planning their first hunt this spring?

    I was thinking that we were 1-2 weeks out also. If it wasn't for last years pg I would never have spotted them.

    I'm getting excited! Hope to get out on Sunday, weather permitting. I have a great spot, but I'm afraid to try morels again this year, after my reaction last year... I'm in central FLX region, so if I find a bunch, I would be willing to share.

    I checked a few known spots today in Jefferson Co and nothing yet. Sure felt like morel weather. And I was happy to see the ground nice and saturated. Should be soon!

    Maybe I'll stumble across some early morels while chasing turkey Monday morning.

    First find of 2017! A good haul of 20+ blacks plus some half-frees, only one of which I took with me. I made a little video of the haul here, give it a look and a "like" if you want more!:
