    It was a pretty productive day, 20 total take. Here's a few pics of habitat. 20 miles west of Syracuse.

    Thanks! You may just be late looking for the blacks. I'm in Ulster by Kingston and I believe the blacks have been up for at least two weeks.

    I can't say that they are not around, I just haven't found them. I also have a hard time finding Black Trumpets, maybe it is a vision thing.
    I am in the woods nearly every weekend and have found Verpas so ......maybe a vision thing.

    I have the first one of the season for me...popping up in my yard, under a pine tree. This usually indicates that things are ready in FLX region. I'll try to drag the boy out with me tonight. I checked my spots on Saturday...nothing. Found the little nub in my yard on Sunday, so I'm thinking it might be good. What will this cool weather do for them?

    The pines that you're finding them under.. are they green or dead/half dead pines? I've been mainly focusing on dead/dying trees. Mainly ash trees from what I can tell. Went out yesterday and today in the Rochester area. No luck thus far.

    Just found these in Saratoga county. I didn't pick them. How long should I wait to check them again?

    There is no telling, too many variables, there is no constant with morels, or life for that matter.

    I haven't been out since Saturday so I have no idea what shape they are in, we've have had plenty of moisture but a bit cool. I am going to guess that there is minimal growth but stay tuned I will relate what I see once I get back out. Good luck and enjoy the hunt.

    0504170902a.jpg Found these two tiny morels this morning on PG in Jefferson Co. Once I saw how tiny they were I left, and tried not to think about how many I was crushing under my boots on the way out.

    This morning I snuck out to check on some I left this past Saturday. They only grew about 10%.
    My brother found 41 today and several were nice size.
    Good luck & enjoy the hunt!
