M-I-W: I'd go east towards Jewel Cave or north towards Four Corners and look for the transition zone from Cedar/Juniper to Pine with a few Aspen/Birch/Spruce. If you are in the sage or Buckbrush/Mahogany you need to climb in elevation. Sandstone and Limestone soils should produce best in your area. A few yellow/grey down there, but mostly black morels. We found little to nothing in the big burns north of Newcastle last year.
