A Long Cool Spring



I know I normally hunt in Mid-MO this time of the year,  but the slow cool spring have kept the hills pretty quiet and I have found myself called to greener pastures for better bounty.  

The morels are lining up two by two to be picked on the plains of KS. It has been so dry there that many places haven't popped in several years.  The plentiful rain and cooler spring have set up for some amazing picking if you get in the right areas.


See if you can find all the morels hiding in this photo.  You may need to look close. 

Here are a few videos of some nice patches I came across on Monday.

Oklahoma Morels 2013


The yellows were plentiful down south. You just had to find the right trees. Not a lot of folks hunt morels down there so they get to grow.

I picked about a pound of nice big yellow ten feet behind 3 fishermen. They were only interested in catfish.

Here are three beauties. I came back with 14 pounds total.




Reports from the Field

Went down to Oklahoma on Sunday to pick some big morels (will post videos from there soon). When I got back and checked my spots I was glad to see that the Mid-MO morels are getting bigger.

Oh and they are just getting started in the south facing slopes of the hills. This one had just come up overnight.

 

Post a comment and let everyone know if you are finding anything in your neck of the woods.

They are here

The morels showed up in Mid-MO about mid-week but they are very tiny. I'm letting them grow so they get to a more pickable size.

Here are a few photos. More to come this weekend.
