This is my first year of looking for morels, and so far no luck. I'm located in western New York. The funny thing is I have seen them in the past while out turkey hunting and thought thought they were rotting mushrooms because of their appearance. It wasn't until this past winter that I saw a video on YouTube and recognized the mushroom. So for the past few months I have been reading up on them along with other edible shrooms in my area. Low and behold I discovered that I had come across chicken of the woods, hen of the woods, oyster mushrooms and what I think are honey mushrooms while out hunting over the years. But I will be harvesting them going forward, I only wish I would have looked into what they were years ago.
