Got into a decent patch Sunday. 4K in NE OR. Was kinda surprised where I found them. Will definitely be hitting this spot a couple more times after some moisture. Got six trays dried out of it.

Found a little more than two pounds worth on Sunday. I'm afraid this just isn't the year for my haunts at least. Not enough moisture but we did get a rain last week that was helpful for this last weekend. Oh well, was still a lot of fun and if it rains more I will get back after it.

We are having the same issues. several spots that produce consistently every year have only given up 20-30. Normally get 200-300 from these spots by now. UGH

I'm glad some of you are finding success  :tup:

I'm hoping to get out and find some this weekend. Area we are going should get some rain this week, then mid 70s by Sunday. Wish me luck!

Glad to hear it’s not just my “spot” which conveniently is our spring bear hunting spot. Went from hundreds to just around 10 per trip we usually don’t look to hard but never had to before

Similar where the tip of heart/mushroom is the best too! I started doing it this way because they dry quicker. I have to leave it unattended usually so I just leave it on the lowest setting. Also, easier to reconstitute and toss in meals. I've never eaten them as their own thing unless they were fresh.

We've had in places over an 1" here in the valley, and most of the timber got a good drink. I'm looking forward to this week before they all burn off - supposed to be 90+ here at 3k.  :bash:

This makes me feel better as well. I had a steep old elk trail I used to head straight up and find some whopper banana sized caps and many medium sized ones but it wasn't very productive this year. I think last year had excellent rain fall in late April where I'm  at which probably made it such a good year.

Finally the pass opened and went to one of my spots, corals were there seemed purdy early not many, and very few morels! Thinking this season may be a busy anyone else? Also, no boletes! Too early or what?

Finally got into a few, high elevation, ground 40% covered in snow, low sunlight area. Such a bad year for these buggers....hoping to get one more day of good finding this coming weekend.
