    I haven't been out yet, but it's time. I'm heading up to Houghton Lake this Friday, maybe I'll get a chance to walk in the wood.
    Tips, find some old dead elm trees and look around the base. Old Apple orchards are a good spot to. The main tip, is when you find them, don't tell anyone! LOL. When your hunting them, use a mesh bag to carry them in. Two thing happen then. They air out nicely, and you also drop a little Shroom Spore on the ground.
    Good Luck! I'll let you know how I do.

    I got 28 morels the other night on my property, and 8 a couple nights before that. They were all black morels.

    found another 20 this weekend.
    That puts my total to about 55 this year so far.
