What area do you live in? Black morels should start to come up soon with some rain. The first few are being reported on morel chat boards in the southern part of the state. Yellow morels seem to come up about the same time lilacs bloom. There are state fish and game areas and state parks around - good places to start. I go some in Indiana but really do the bulk of my mushrooming in Northern Michigan.
A shroomer just told me today the he starts looking here in middle to upper Indiana about the time that the message boards start showing morels in southern Indiana. He was saying that by the time you see them on here, you missed em. His wife said that he stays out from dawn til dusk when he is hunting, which is about 10 more hours than my back will take. He looks for dying elms of course, and told me to look along drainage ditches. I am thinking I'll go park in front of his house the night before and follow him when he leaves, but that would be unethical. But then I am typing this from a laptop, and hold on, someone is pulling out of the driveway now,,,,,,,
