    I plan to post a few reports as the season gets into full swing and would really appreciate any reports from you guys too. I know better than to ask where, but announcing the appearance of morels in your general vicinity helps with knowing the progress of the season.

    I'll be hunting in the Dearborn/Ohio county area in SE IN.

    I'm going to get into mushroom hunting this year. I love eating morels but just havent ever had anyone to show me how to find them. I think I'm just going to do some exploring this year and see what I can find. Good luck to all of you.

    I went out after work and found 17 in about an hour or two. Most of my good spots were destroyed by the tornado last year. Air temp has been in the mid 70's the last 2 days. Not sure what the ground temperature is. It was weird being there, theres all kinds of siding, shingles, baby toys, clothing, and papers scattered throughout the woods and stuck in trees.

    Next week or two should be best. Let me know if you guys find any.

    Heading to Illinois 4/15 around Springfield. My buddy's uncle has a big farm with lots of woods there. I've never seen the place. Hopefully it's good timing. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    My Dad used to say that you needed a few 50 degree nights before they would popup.

    I love looking for them (don't usually find many), but I really love eating them & washing them down with an ice cold bud light. :D

    I used to love to hunt Morels..Now I have such limited free time I have to chose mushroom hunting or catfishing, catfishing always wins out.;)
