    Went out today and found 89 morels. they were not growing very thick just scattered everywhere. I think more will pop up after this cold spell we are getting.

    I went today too, But i think maybe we have had a few hotter days and warmer nights than you all have, back to the point we found around 300 little gray and white morels today, puts the total up to around 1000 since sunday.

    I know there is a big market for them out west. My cousin supported himself selling those things for awhile out west. considered great eating. Morels have a very distinct look to them. Some edible mushrooms look alot like dangerous ones but morels are hard to confuse.
