    The warm temps and the upcoming forecast seems too good to be true, could be a good one this spring. Ramps are coming up, any reports of fiddleheads would be appreciated. One thing I noticed when morels come up is that you cant see through the woods easy, seems to be early for sure this year. OldElm I think you hit it on the head this year. Kind of weird, we might be picking same time as north East Iowa from what it seems.

    No fiddleheads in my neck of the woods, but the dandelions are coming up in the woods and in peoples yards! The trout lily and rue anemone all started blooming yesterday too! I took some pictures when I was out yesterday. If all goes well should be hammerin' 'em by the end of this week, just need a little rain.

    Treebeard those all are good signs, might have to go south next Wednesday and check it out. So warm up here now, almost humid, totally different from 2 years ago. If we get some rain this week it will be awesome. Saw a couple yellow dandelions but in rock and landscape. Ramps just not to size when morels come up, but I know some ware there is a couple up.

    Don't miscalculate troop. Seeing dandelions a lot today! All over. Not questioning ur skills, but seeing a lot in central today. If you get any rain it's time to search. Likewise for me and for all who feel and know this progression. I'd be check-in cannon falls first rain if that's where I lived!!!!

    Buckthorn, I'm not too far from Cannon, but I've never hunted out there or the Welch/Miesville areas. Good hunting that way I assume? I usually keep to the south and west of there a ways to do my hunting. Time has usually not allowed for me to hit anything too far from home, but this year I seem to have found myself a little more than usual. Maybe I'll have to head that way if the pickin' is good.

    Found some ramps that were real ready for the pickin' today up in the Savage area, unfortunately I didn't snag a pic. Shrooms will follow soon!

    I am seeing a few Dandelions now, I must be in a cooler pocket. This rain and cooler weather is just what the doctor ordered for the Elms on the edges. In woods still moist last I checked. Cant wait.

    I love the hunt and the woods. I've been out everyday scouting around Dane cty haven't seen anything yet. Going out soon with my dad's old time pal. Someday if he can' together out, I'll be there to pay it forward all the times he's shared with us. Hoping to bring back a bunch for my Pops. I enjoy reading about everyone's excitement for the season! Thanks for your videos and posts Old Elm. I sure enjoy your thoughts and comments on this site. Question, how long after controlled burns do shrooms usually pop up? Also, cooking tip, Amish Butter!

    Rosey I hunted one that was burned 2 months before morel season and got a few last year. First time I ever tried a burned area. Speak in of that remember last year up in nw territory there was suppose to be this pick of the century? I don't remember hearing how it all turned out for those folks.

    Rosey it was a park and it wasn't scorched until last year. So I say give it a try as long as it's already been burnt! Found my last 8 mushy there last year. Would have been memorial wknd! Was stuck going to work. But that was the last pick of the season. That's why I remember:)

    Checked a honey hole today, nothing. I've heard people finding them in the North Branch/Cambridge area, I don't buy it.
