    I think there are quite a few morel hunters in BOC from comments I've read.I know its a little too early yet but not much.Last year I found them on April 23 which is later than usual.What I'm proposing is when you start finding them make a post on here with date and approx area.Dont give away any secrets but it may help if you know others are finding them near you.Anyone willing?:smile2: Catfish and morels go together.

    Its been a few years since I've found them in big numbers, but there were times when hunting them with my Dad, we would come home with grocery sacks full.

    im in Ray.
    last year was a freak year for morels,i hope this year is at least close.
    im not sure if you could find the morel thread from last year but there was quite a few pics in it.
    the past few years i have found them in one spot along the river before easter.i find them there about 1 1/2 -2 weeks before ill find them anywhere else.the sun hits the spot all day is the only explanation that i can come up with:confused2:

    Will post when I start hunting. If you have never hunted them, find the cottonwood trees and you will find the mushrooms. Don't know what it is but around here they go hand in hand. Find a strip of cottonwoods that have been logged and you will hit pay dirt.

    Around here whenever we find a big patch of them, there's always a standing dead elm tree in the middle of them. They like hardwoods for sure, but the elms standing and rotting with the bark falling off are the ticket to patches.

    I too would be happy to share my results. I used to go down around Hartford on the public land and did real well. I don't turkey hunt down there anymore so it is time to find some new spots up this way. Good idea for a thread. Timing is critical to finding morels!

    The last few years I've been trying to get them started in my yard by letting some dry out and put them in water and pour water around my yard.I have a couple of apple trees and I've found a lot of them in old apple orchards so maybe I'll get lucky.

    Ive always heard that morels replenish themselves by drying out and their spores being spread by the wind. This being the reason people use onion sacks and stuff so the spores can drop out while packing them through the woods. just my 2 cents
