    I couldn't find a thread for the Will County area so I figured if start one. Has anyone found any morels yet? I've been out quite a bit and haven't seen any. Low night time temps and slow change to nice weather is putting a damper on things. My initial guess was beginning of may hopefully that happens. Temps this week are going to be between 55-70ish. With several chances for rain. Post some pics and sightings when you find some ill do the same!

    They are up here in will county. Found 10 today 2 blonds and 8 small greys. Early and small still but first time out. Found them in
    Direct sunlight off a road. Picked the blonds and left the greys to grow this week. Happy hunting.

    Here you go. I've been following this site for a long time now, I find over 15 lbs per year. I don't need to make up stories about finding them.

    This message was meant to inform those who care that they can be found up here. If I had a newspaper I would answer your request for a picture. I live in glen ellyn and work in will county and find all of my morels in one piece of private land. I have found them in this spot as early as end of March 2012. If you feel the need harass and name call that I am finding morels than so be it. Leave the foul and rude language with all those mushrooms you are missing. Again happy hunting everyone.

    I believe you ShedHunter. I know its still too early, but you could have found some flukes, especially in direct sunlight where the ground warms up faster. I can't believe how fast some of the plant life has taken off from this rain the last 48 hours. I'm gonna check a couple early spots of mine this weekend to see how things are shaping up. I wouldn't be surprised to find a couple micro's myself?

    I got a pic from a friend last night her friend found 2 small ones in the area. I know it's close I'm sure there's some up but I haven't seen any. The first groups always the hardest.

    jmiff78,

    You caught me. I actually picked these in Kentucky and drove 12 hrs to the south suburbs to take a photo of 4 small mushrooms just to try to convince you that they were up in the area. I do apologize,

    Nice finds rubbertoe. I just posted on the DuPage board. They are just coming up, small like you said, I left the 5 I found to pick hopefully this weekend if nobody finds them? 2 small greys and 3 very small yellow's. I can shoot a live documentary and post it on youtube with dates and times if no one believes me, lmao! The haters are out again I see......

    Jmiff is a s#!tbum loser that can't find any morels so he'd rather troll and harrass people on a mushroom forum. Real classy guy...get a life, pal.

    Nice early finds. Warmth is on the way next week!
