General Information: INDIANA POSTERS!!!! To the right of this post is the proper way to record & report the first finds of the season. This is only the 2nd report with evidence to back up the reported find and that has earned the privilege to bragging rights (first north - north central Indiana find :). But mostly it's how the rookies & time restricted hunters can plan their hunts with confidence that it's time to to hunt. So please post with a date verified photo! Now to the, hopefully helpful info. Found 5 blacks tonight. 1 or 2 days old. Within 10ft of elm. Elm was in its 2nd or 3rd year of bark shedding. Still was real moist & 56?F. Rookies needing help spotting elms or other helpful tips text email me. Libertygrainbins(at)gmail(dot)com.

General Location: Easley

Morels Found: 70
General Information: Easley, SC. Went back to the spot where the sheriffs deputy ran me off, this time with the permission of the land owner (Thanks Margo!) Found several sporadically within an hour. Was headed back out and spotted one in the distance, in a spot I rarely check due to severe dense floiage. Then spent the next hour on my knees in the brush because, "Theres one! and another and two right there and so on". Amazing two hours! Promised the land owner I would share,(she's from Michigan and well you know morels up there are popular!) And todays haul is perferct for sharing! Thanks again Margo! Most are over 4 inches tall and all but 1 are fresh today. This takes my South Carolina year total to around 130 since late march. By far my best year of the 5 years I have been looking here. Will continue to check this location over the next few days and keep you all posted.
