I went mushroom hunting for the first time yesterday.

A buddy of mine calls me up at 5:30 yesterday morning, says he has the day off and hes headin' up to the mountains and asks if i want to go.
 "Sure, sounds like a relaxing day" (and it was).

So, we found maybe 20 morels and a few corrals. My initial observation of trying to find mushrooms...MORELS ARE HARD TO SEE! They are like pine cones standing up, some are darker then others.

When my friend pointed out the first one found so I knew what to look for I exclaimed, "Now I know why you are walking so slow"  :chuckle:

Looked in circles from every angle once you found one. Slow circles, be amazed how many get stepped on unseen

Take kids with you. They're closer to the ground, good at it, and love it. Always hunt going uphill. You'll see them a lot easier.

Thanks guys for the tips. I must give credit to my buddy, he said each of your tips to me!  :)

When i found one, there was always a second nearby. Yes, looking uphill was much easier.
