    Geogymn which county did your brother find them? I'm in Jefferson and haven't found anything over an inch tall.

    Katydid I think we'll b at least a week with r colder weather. I'm only finding little ones too. If we'd get a week of 60° it will be on.

    Oneida County. Found an even 60 today albeit half of those are ones that I left untouched from Saturday (the other half I left were gone).
    It was a cold, wet, miserable day. Perfect for hunting morels. Some under Elm, some under Apple, and some under Ash. 0505171432a.jpg 0505171248.jpg

    Good hunting geo. I can't wait to start myself. I feel like a kid being told to wait. Then I ask again n I'm told not yet. Driving me crazy lol.

    So there is no problem picking in the rain? Usually I try not to go picking mushrooms while it's raining not want them to get water logged.

    I took some video to accompany this interesting pic which I'll upload later. These were cozy with a skinny little ash tree by the walk.

    I would rather forage under more favorable condition but my time is not my own. I like hunting in the rain, it reduces your chance of seeing someone.

    I am happy for your success. Lynk added a lot to this site and was very helpful, I am worried about him.
    4 PG is awesome. It is getting that part of the season to start looking for NG (new ground).
    I've lost many a PG thru the years. Good luck and enjoy the hunt!

    They might also just not be where you've looked, of course. I'm the same with chanterelles. I've looked for years and found just one tiny group two feet from a road, so didnt take. Meanwhile I've had multiple friends who are much less invested in finding them text me pics asking "hey are these chanterelles?" and of course they were. Maybe I'll get a good patch this year.

    For black trumpets however, I've got a spot where I can pick two pounds in a day. Funny how it works sometimes.
