A Bad Day Morel Hunting is Better Than a Good Day in the Office...But a Good Day in the Woods Takes the Cake


Teamed up with Shroom King a Mid-MO hunter I have hunted with for a couple of years now. Good old guy as most mushroom hunters are if you get to know them.
We hit it hard and covered a lot of miles. Most places were spotty but every now and then we would get into some good overlooked places.

Not a lot of time to write must soak aching muscles and tired feet. So here are some more videos and photos to help keep your morel needs at bay.

Here is a close up of the final haul. We found some big ones today as you will see.


And...

The elusive Shroom King posing in a better shot of just over 15 pounds because they were fat and meaty and I mean the mushrooms, not my hunting buddy.

Sometimes we had to sneak up on them.

Other times they jumped out right in front of us.

But they were usually out with a bunch of friends.

All let these photos from the last few days speak for themselves.








I highly recommend getting out and enjoying this great weather. Maybe you'll get lucky like us.

Hello, my name is Elizabeth Laubach and I am a reporter at the Columbia Missourian. I would like to do an article on morels, specifically explaining how the mild spring has affected them. I would like to talk to morel hunters who have tracked morels for years upon years. I would very much like to talk to you, and any other hunting buddies that have are also experienced and avid morel hunters. Please email me as soon as possible at emlh53@mail.missouri.edu if you would like to follow this wonderful opportunity to educate the public about morels (but not your foraging spots!) as well about how weather and climate affect them, specifically most recently. Thank you and have a great day!

Elizabeth Laubach, reporter
