Rainy Days Bring on Small Grays
We have been lucky to have some cloudy rainy days just as temps went up in the mid-80s. Yesterday's rainy day really got things started. Things are still small and it looks like temps are going to cool down and be more moderate along with even more rain. This is only a good sign of things to come.
Now don't get all excited, you are not going to pick a bag yet. I covered most of these up and left them to get bigger. Next weekend should be the perfect time to start looking and bringing back sackfuls. I think it is going to be a good year here in Mid-MO.
Here is the date shot for all you Show-Me people. Sorry I forgot to get a paper while I was at Hy-Vee. I was lost getting cream and thinking of the venison loin topped with morel cream sauce. I assure you we picked these today.
Now the ones in the photo below that Camo was so gracious enough to fry me up along with some catfish were from GA. Thanks Camo for the fine meal. That made a perfect end to a lot of walking.
Here is a video of the first finds of the day. Always nice to start the day finding a patch like this. We looked around and didn't see much so we went to check another area
Here is the prettiest cluster of little greys I have ever had to cover. Will be back for them later.
Here is a video of some of the biggest (2 1/2 inchers) that we saw.
This is only the beginning. This time next week it will be on.
