I am hoping that the rough winter is good for the morels -- no shortage of precipitation, and as I understand it the snow actually stops the ground from getting much colder than freezing.

What are we thinking for first reasonable chance of finding morels? 1 more week like this? 2 more? I will probably not try hunting until late this month.

Excavating on a job a few weeks ago the frost was down 2 feet.I've heard and read that morels like cold climes. The last 2 years I've picked my first with a week left in April at about 600 ft. elev. mostly under (not so happy) ash trees.But those were much milder winters. I'll be running on pure optimism and desire to be in the woods regardless of conditions.

jcumo, stay positive. I was able to score a few my first year and while I can't devote a whole lot of time looking for them, I know they are there.
For me, spring turkey hunting and morel hunting go hand in hand since turkeys can only be hunted til noon. So if I don't score a turkey, I can spend the afternoon scouring the ground!!
Season is coming up fast guys/gals! May your mesh bags be full!
