I'm a recent transplant to Somerset county and this talk of the upcoming morel season has got my attention. How do morels fair in Somerset county? Are there many to be found? I've never looked before and wouldn't mind finding a few. Thanks for any input.

As you can see from a topic that Gal started last year, Somerset was added on April 13th. Yes they grow there.

Here is a good site for info

I'm sure there are some good areas in Somerset.
I look around ash,poplar and old apple trees/orchards also anywhere you find mayapples growing.
No set rules as to where you can find 'em.
My biggest problem is finding the first one of the year,after that they seem to pop out at you.
Hopefully someone from your area will chime in,but there's another problem-most 'shroomers are more likely to give up thier favorite treestand than a good morel honeyhole.
