    Hello from western NY! Went out looking yesterday in Monroe county with no luck. Did find some false morels though. Feels great to finally find people in NY also looking for morels. The only thing you seem to find on social media is people talking about finds in the midwest.

    Oneida County, Valley of the Mohawk.
    Went out today with the expectation that I would be finding some albeit I felt they would be too small as I only mowed my lawn once.
    I was correct in my assumption but I did harvest a half dozen for breakfast along with some fiddleheads.
    I found 42 in all, all PG, otherwise I would not have seen most of them.
    10 were under dead Elm and the rest under Apple.
    People don't get discouraged, it will be hard to see them this week. Next weekend should begin the harvest. The weather has been favorable methinks.

    Sorry.., all I found today were tics here in Saratoga county. I first discovered morels in my yard a few years back. I am embarrassed to say I used to mow right over them. Once I realized what they were, I decided to go out looking. I found tons! I was like this is easy! In the past 2 seasons I have only found 3. So much for easy. There's tons of dead elms and a few old orchards I know of, but no luck. It's my punishment for mowing them.

    Altogether 30+ of the three major types of morels in the Northeast: black, yellow, and half-free, all prime. I left some younger and older ones. Have you ever seen a bigger half-free? I almost hid that one, it was borderline indecent...

    I wanted to share that I discovered the tree association for blacks (M. angusticeps) in this spot of mine: It's bigtooth aspen aka poplar. Very easily identifiable leaves in leaf litter, and then the bark and spring catkins will zero you into the tree. In the Hudson Valley I'd advise checking all aspen/poplar areas the last days of April and early May.

    Good report, good haul! My earliest yellows are under Poplar. I've found just one Black in 15 years of hunting mushrooms.
