Default They are back - Dry Land Fish!!

Spent the morning searching for these guys with my oldest son Tyler. Felt it might be just too early but was surprised to find so many.













I have found them as early as 15 March and this weather has put a slow start to the morel season this year.

If anyone else is having luck please post.

Are you finding those things in your neighborhood or what? Last year I found tons in the mountains, really hoping to find some closer to my house this year. I have started looking in the small patches of woods near my house but I have had no luck thus far... Do you find them other places than in the mid to higher elevations?

Was in the woods turkey hunting last weekend, and completely forgot to look for morels... Have to try this weekend.

Default Where I find them

Sorry for the late reply. The pictures below are the second of my finds this year. Found at least thirty medium sized grey morels in the same area as the first pictures but a week later.


The morel season appears to have a future of being a better than most this year for sure because of the rain fall and cooler temps.

Tulip poplar, sycamore and old cedar trees adjacent low pastures or fields have proven to produce best for me from Cleveland, Tn. to Madsionville, Tn..

Washouts or gullies that have the above trees near are excellent prospects. The foliage from these trees builds up and creates an excellent environment for mother nature to create yet another miracle.

I have found after cleaning, dipping in egg yolk mixed with milk and rolling in crushed saltine cracker crumbs then fried golden brown in butter will give most a yearning that will last till the next season.




Old Man of the Woods keeping a watchful eye!!





Having done this since 7 or 8 yrs. old I can describe it as an adults easter egg hunt. If you can get the family involved.......all the better.


Thank you,

Breck
