Nice find. I checked couple spots today. Didn't find anything.
Pic of the one that had the tip frozen last week.
Found 22 more today. Gonna hit another spot this afternoon.
Looks like they are starting to show a little more size. Makes them easier to find. I won't be able to check the patches on my Hart county farm until next week. Hope they haven't gone past their peak by then. I haven't checked those patches in 2 weeks. This coming weekend's rains and warm temps should really make the blacks and the smaller greys/yellows pop.
Ever had any luck in places that flood? Got a place I've never checked that will flood several times a year.
I've never hunted what I would call a flood prone area following a time that it was recently under water. I do find the big yellows in creek and river bottoms that I assume may flood occasionally.
I dont normally fina alot on places that flood but i have found some in areas that have flooded before. Rule of thumb i normally find them on hill sides and ridge tops that have never seen flood water.
My thinking is would wash the spores out. But might wash some in also. I may check it. This will probably be last year on the farm I find all mine. It got cut last year. Under growth may be to much next year.
Found about 20 more today. Will take pics when i get home. Also found a rick crawling on me.....booooo
But it is starting to rain so the next few days should produce as well...
Pic of todays findings.
Nice. Should be good week coming up.
I'm so jealous. I live on about 130 acres and haven't found 1 in the past few years. I haven't combed the whole farm, but there isn't a lot left to check. Not sure if it's my eyes or they're not here. I know people that used to find them here though.
Nothing ruins a good morel hunt more than finding ole Rick in the woods. lol
HAHA yea I hope I dont have any more ricks crawling on me. All jokes aside it is going to be a bad year for the bugs I do believe.
Got in a short 1 1/2 hour hunt this afternoon in Jefferson in patches I picked last Sunday. Found 21 very fresh blacks ranging in size from 1-4 inches. All of these were very black and most were easier to see compared to the lighter (tan) blacks I have been finding this season. This week should be excellent following Saturday's rain, along with the upcoming warmer temps and predicted rains. Also picked almost a lb of very fresh oysters.
