Had some luck up in the Schneider Springs burn last weekend.  Seemed like 3500-3800 feet was where we found the most - quality was better in partial shade, near logs and water that retain some moisture.

That's a great haul!! We found a few over memorial weekend, 3600 elevation. Nothing in the higher up burned areas we checked out yet, still too cold I guess.

This is a weird year in my experience. Pray for rain, got too much, but it stayed cool so my spots were delayed an entire month. The best might be yet too come above 5000 feet. Pics coming

Nice, those look good quality too. It's weird but I think mid June might be on for the high elevation. Where I go, its typically long over by that time usually.

The verdict is in. I have developed an allergy to morels and it will likely last the rest of my life I have been told. Been eating them (in large amounts which is probably the downfall) for years and now my gut just won't handle them. Quick onset of nausea and then vomiting. Thought it was alcohol induced but now it happens regardless of alcohol consumption.

It's crazy. Morels even taste different to me now. The taste is still decent but its not the same (not nearly as good) and my mind is like "whaa??" after I swallow it down. I will be giving all my morels away in the future.  I still love to find them and so will continue to hunt for em'.

I love morels but with some health issues we avoid them ( especially with alcohol) I know people that have the same experience you do with reactions with morels. Not everyone can get along with them.

Elevation will  be particular to an area.  Think temperature instead.  Morels want soil temps of 50-55F.  Look for elevations with air temp ranges of mid 40s to 60.  Bring a digital thermometer to check the soil.  As for the William O Douglas burn we were finding them lower than higher last week,  3000- 3500 ft.

Good luck out there.

Good info, thank you. I'm still learning and never thought to bring a thermometer to check soil Temps.  :tup:

Has anyone tried the Ford Corkscrew fire from last year?

Would this be a good place to try? https://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/7803/

I've only found about a dozen so far this year and it was on a burn from 2018. Hoping a more recent burn = more growth?

My son had a bad experience with them a couple years ago.....thus the lack of morel hunting on my part.  He had been eating them with no problems.....then the last time he had them he had an upset stomach, nausea and vomiting.  Makes it hard to get excited to pick them after that.  I have never had a reaction....my wife and daughter don't like them.....thus no morels for our family.  Super bummed......it was one of the activities that made me look forward to spring.  :bash: :bash:
