I have too been looking for a week in Warren Co. I have found two little blacks that were together. Nothing else but the woods do look better and the rain we got with warm should make conditions more to the positive.
I FOUND MY FIRST BIG GREY TODAY AND 13 MORE HALF FREE'S :-D HAD ONLY AN HOUR TO LOOK AROUND. DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS ANY WHERE TO TAKE MUSHROOMS TO BE CHECKED IN WARREN COUNTY? THE HALF FREE STEM CONNECTS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TOP. WILL TRY AND POST PICTURES TOMORROW IF I HAVE TIME.
Went out yesterday and found 3 greys, 2 yellows and 25 half frees in warren county. Only a small area of the woods had any shrooms. Today went to where I had been watching some greys grow and picked 25 nice ones. Seems like some woods just aren't ready to produce yet, cause a woods that has always produced good numbers for me and is so close to the other woods that has been producing a few has yet to have a one?
I always hunt public land since don’t have any private spots here. Today hit a place in Warren County which seems to be getting better by the day. My daughter and I picked 50 half frees and 2 greys. She had a blast and has learned a lot for her 6 years. Has anyone done any good in Greene lately? Wish I had some private land to hunt too.
Hey Guys your only 2 County's away from Me I'm in Pike County and alltypes of Morels have been up here for weeks But the Yellow are only 6"-10" Tall one way you can tell if Yellow are is if Ginseng is Up so are the Yellows, and Ginseng around here is 2-3" High now, also this has been a weired Year we Realy were finding Plenty of Blacks-HalfFree (Peckerheads) and a few Grays in March where we had 1 week in the 80s and that always screwes up the hole year for Mushrooms being west of Pike County they should be Up there I would Think. Hope this Helps some. Jim
@bugeyedbabe there are a lot of places at Caesar's Creek State Park that have morels but it is a large area. I have had some luck off Oregonia road, drive down a old road (New Road) I believe. There are a lot of Ash trees, some elms and sycamore too. I have found greys and seen others that had nice sacks of morels there. I have found 100 half frees this year, 39 greys and 22 yellows this year in Warren County. Not the best year but still some yellows out there for sure. Any woods with Ash, Elm and sycamore trees should have some morels.
yes general location is what I post here. Caesar's creek there is only a small area there that I listed that I have had luck at times but just a general location. Not the exact spot where I have found my morels. most of my spots are secret but that one is no secret for sure. I have a dozen or more good spots and hardly hit that one. Just trying to give a few newbies a idea of where to look not trying to give anyones spot away for free. I haven't even been out for several days and haven't tried there for two years.
I live in Dayton but hunt where the shrooms are, I just saw 2 posts mentioning specific areas that I am sure would upset a whole lot of locals. Been a member here since like 2003, hunted for over 40 years and have seen way too many specific spot posts. I cannot tell anyone what to post but just the mention of a specific road or a stupid creek and the parking spaces fill up during the week anymore, let alone the weekend warriors. For every 1 poster there are a 100 lurking and writing stuff down, thanks Dan. I dropped the shroomdawg part, which my buddy started calling me years ago, as I was accused of being arrogant on this forum and have kept my mouth shut here out of sheer reluctance to post until morel madness is over. I prefer summer shrooms which is now getting as competitive as this [email protected] morel madness. It's like watching watching Walking Dead anymore, hoards just wandering LOL.
