Morel question

Do they even grow in Potter County? I don't eat mushrooms and never will but I'm just wondering because I have never heard of anyone looking for them until I got on this website.

Re: Morel question

I didn't think there were any in Northumberland County...Found my first one this morning while turkey hunting...It was all shriveled up though, but now I know where to look.

Re: Morel question

I haven't hunted Morel's in every county of PA, but it just wouldn't be sensible to think they are not found in every county. Some counties of course are better than others. Here in the Southwest we have Elm's. If you have them up there, they are probably sparse. Too sparse to target for Morel's. That said, you have to have Ash and Poplar up there somewhere. Target them, get the knack, and you'll consistently find them. Should be close to prime in the northern tier, as we are on the back end down here.

Re: Morel question

Not really interested in finding them, mushrooms are gross. I just found it strange that non of the old timers around here look for them. Especially the way they look for leeks.

Trust me partner. There's alot of history, lore, and passed on traditions in them mountains where you live. There's plenty of folks within earshot of you that are gathering mushrooms.
