    I'm going up to the lake this weekend to do some a woods behind the cottage....................Ok, now what in the heck am I looking for?

    I've heard that mushroom hunting takes a trained eye....I don't have me out here.

  8. Cary, do you mean which are safe to eat, or how to actually spot locations that may be good?

    I can find the ones that are poisonous....I need to know where to look for morels
  10. Mushrooming will be a new quest for me this year too. I've heard folks say look around fallen ash trees, and on south facing slopes.

    If we don't find any, does it mean we're A-morel?

    I'm an English teacher....not sure what an ash looks like (white bark)

    No, we're not A-morel....just hope we don't make an ash of ourselves.
  12. some of the best places to look are around elm trees that have just died...really any tree that has just died is a good start. thickets and underbrush where the ground has an insulator are good areas to check. Also check around big ash trees later in the season year for big yellows. south facing slopes are good now because they get the most sun but they also have to get moisture. Ditch lines always in the woods seem to produce. Hope that helps a little and i'm sure there are other places where people have found them as well.
  13. No, it means you're A MORON!!!!!!!:chicken: !!!!
  14. As a long standing really bad morel hunter, I say we need a morel outing. Let the big dogs teach the pups.
  15. Got a few in the bag...17 to be exact...yellows...been working and staying at Turkey to soon as I figure out how to do computer guru is on some beach in Florida...
