Hey Folks..

Man it has been nice and warm and rained most of this week.

Got to be getting right for morels.

I have seen more red buds blooming this week to.

This evening after work I took a 45 minute stroll down to look over several of my ginseng beds, but found no 3 leafers up yet.

No mayapple either and there is some right there in my beds.

I looked hard around several big poplar and mossy bottom big old hickory trees but found no morels.

This week I took Latt's advice and made me a \"decoy morel\". I printed out a pic of that little black I found last year and cut it out and laminated it. Now I can set it down in the leaves and back up and spot it.

Here is what it looks like.. see if you can spot it in the pic below.

I did find another bunch of that little stem and cup top shrooms..

I think these are the same as the ones I found last weekend, except these are opened up like cups.

Also - I am going to hunt a big river bottom area tomorrow morning. It has some huge old poplar trees, sycamore and hickory all along a black top road that leads down to the river. I expect there may be some ash and elm in that area too, not sure but likely in that river bottom area.

It used to be a place where the manufactured pig iron back in the 1800's too, so should be metal deposits around.

There are several small streams and ditch lines that feed into the river there.

Any tips for hunting around places like that ?

Thanks

TN.. Check the roadway first like right off the blacktop. If the roadway is on a slope check area's where water runs off and casts soil (Think Disturbed soil area's) check those creek run off area's where soil is moved around. Hunt those TP tree area's don't worry about the elm and others just yet that's were you'll find the yellows and they will not be out yet.

trahn...

Thanks for the tips.

I am cooking me up some breakfast now, couple sausage/biscuits and another biscuit with some home made strawberry jam.

It is just breaking day now outside and I plan to head out about the time the sun tops the ridge behind the house.

It is about a 20 minute drive to this river bottom place, so it should be good and light when I get there.

Man this week our grass went from nothing to growing 3-4 inches, and lots of things starting to green up in the woods now.

I saw lots of trillium poking up and other little green shoots too.

I bet may apple will not be far behind.

Hope I get lucky today and can have some morels for lunch or dinner - - - we'll see.

Re:3/17 shroom hunting... 5 years 8 months ago #17076

Well I gave it a good try this morning. Hunted a bueatiful place. Had som HUGE poplar trees right along a roadside and in a river bottom area.

I got started hunting a little before 8 am and quit at 11:30 - found not one single morel :(

Had my hopes up for today but still no luck so far. Not giving up though !

I did find a few shrooms and took some pics that I will share..

I just love spots like this one...

I walked the roadway and looked that bank over real good all the way up to the black top, and especially hard where there were poplars near the road.
