    Thanks, I usually find my blacks near ash or poplar, sometimes cherry, but sometimes just in random spots, most of the time it is rich dark soil, without much clay in it. Lots can be found on public land. I also know of a real good patch of blacks right by some railroad tracks that produce big ones every year.

    Knucklehead: Always be careful when picking morels in residential, urban areas, Right-Of-Ways (power lines, pipelines etc) and near roads. Morels are good absorbers of heavy metals and potentially harmful chemicals within pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. If the lawn was lush, homogeneous and green, I'd discard these because the lawn must have been sprayed with herbicides and fertilizers. Most folks actually prep their lawns with chemicals in early Spring. As we say: If found in the woods - you are good. My 2 cents & happy foraging-

    Went out again today in mercer county all i ended up with was 2 smaller pheasant back mushrooms. Never ate them before but im gonna try tonight. All ive read is they are better smaller than big bc they can get tough the bigger they get. I hope our morel season is coming soon because the antisipation is killing me lol.
