Morels Found: 15
False Morels: 0
Other Mushrooms: everywhere!
General Information: Between my girlfriend, I and 4 friends, weve found about 100 over the past 5 days. Morel growth locations are diferent this year, dont be afraid to look deep in the brush and under various low lying plants. We have had the most luck on various hillsides with allot of fallen bark from dead trees. Also, I seem to be finding them near may apples, large vines and large shagbark hickory wich is great because they are easy to identify due to the shagy bark and hickory nuts on the ground! Hope that helps, good luck fellow hunters!

Morels Found: approximately 275-300
False Morels: 1
Other Mushrooms: dozens of poisonous not picked, hen of the wood
General Information: Greys were found early in the season. Found them all in one location about 90 total. Had a dry, seasonably warm few days early May which slowed the hunt, then boom rain and lots of yellows. My buddy and I pick the same hot spot and both turned up nearly 200 yellows each over the course of a few days of scouring the thicks, and ridges. Had a good season. The yellows I found 2 days ago in perfect conditions were starting to rot. The season here in central PA is coming to a close. Hope everyoneis enjoying their tasty morels!
