Went tonight in the steady rain! Found 52 real nice sized ones. Waiting to hit it big. I usually have one day where I get 200-500 so far the most in one day has been 168.

I also went out in the downpowr to check some spots. Got out alittle late so went to my favorite spot first. They were everywhere. I seen hundreds of morels just poking up through the leaf cover. I barely even walked into the woods. I didn't pick one and just backed off so I wasn't stepping on them. I'll go back today or tomorrow. I am very close to you 6.5, so your spots should be in full swing very soon too. That rain was just what we needed.

oh man, that's killin' me. Where we used to live they grew in the front "yard," when I'd get home from work I'd pick a gallon and have them for dinner.


Nice finds...

Apple trees and poplar stands are good too. I have never done good in poplar all though some people swear by it. I focus on elm and apple. Yesterday was weird all the elms had blondes under them and the apples all had blacks.

When i drive around to look for good spots I look from the roads and try to see lots of white snags among the green foilage on south facing hills, right now is the best. When an elm tree dies the bark just slides right off of it, usually starting from the top. From far away on a road looking up onto a ridge they will pop out like crazy once you have the eye for it. i find most of the time my good elm spots are thick with briars, they make me work for my morels.
