Morel Mushrooms

Has anyone been out looking yet?

From other reports online, it looks like they are just starting to pop up in the southern part of the state.

Also, does anyone have any tricks for identifying elm trees?

Re: Morel Mushrooms

I haven't yet. Been thinking about it. Figured it has been too dry and cool. Sure there are some a few somewhere.

Re: Morel Mushrooms

Elms are the only "vase" shaped tree, the trunk goes up and then branches into a wine glass shape. Look for standing dead elms, they're easy to notice when the bark starts to fall off. I've always found them near dead elms, either the tops of the hills or benches where they get morning sun.

Re: Morel Mushrooms

Looked the other day near my favorite elms in armstrong county. Nothing yet. There is the american elm and the slippery elm. Look for the slippery elm. They are the first to seed. Look for flat disc shaped seed pods. Bark reminds me of a white ash tree. Leaves are usually dark on the slippery elm. I can drive down the road and look for the dark leaves the confirm by the bark or seedpods. Trees grow near water or in low lands. Also look around old crab apple tree or apple orchards. Dead or dying trees are prime. Under these trees you will usually find the big yellows. The smaller black ones are usually found near tulip trees. Here is two videos of my morel hunting over the years.

#2 http://youtu.be/k-BPK6O8WQI ..be sure to look at the second video near the middle of the video to see some big ones!
Hope this helps!

Re: Morel Mushrooms

75 Sunday in Franklin County. Mostly blacks, couple greys, and almost all under a single dead hickory. Very fresh.

Re: Morel Mushrooms

Was out this past Saturday on the border of Washington and Greene. Nothing yet in my areas.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Morel Mushrooms

My Son and I were out 4/28 and found 7 about an inch in height around a dead tree in Southern Centre Couny. That same tree produced 19 grays last year. This rain will really help.

Not only is my short-term memory horrible, but so is my short-term memory.
