To still be finding good clean morels under 4000’ this late in the year is not common.  I’ve picked for 2 hours in the last week and ended up with 15lbs
I was thinking id pick that Coors ,than all them mushrooms and fry them up.
Looks good. 👍
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

I’m not sure there’s any alcohol worth mentioning in a Coors light

With the lingering winter snows and lots of spring rain this year for morel mushrooms will be one for the record books and not to even mention looking in all the burn areas.


Hit several of our higher elevation areas yesterday. Weird year. One area should have been good with all the rain, but it had zero. 2nd area had a few, but still needs to warm up and grow them a little bigger. 3rd, and best producing area was still mostly snow covered.....it will be 2 more weeks for that spot to produce......5 weeks later than normal.

that’s why I hike with coors light, then drink IPA’s and whiskey at camp!

i winder with this heat if it’s going to be a quick short stint of a couple days at the higher elevation spots with the incoming heat?

I have 3 dehydrators with 7 racks a piece going right now and gave 2 grocery bags worth of morels away today.


Is it wild berry season yet? :chuckle:

Found a great spot last Saturday,  by far the most mushrooms I've ever seen in one area. Little brother and I picked 10 lbs!  8)  Elevation was just under 4,200', Air temps in the 70's

This was a good mushroom season in Idaho, we had an end of bear season bbq which included lobster, steak, fried morels, fried king boletes, stuffed morrels wrapped in bacon, mushroom alfredo, huckleberry cobbler, peach cobbler, and huckleberry bread pudding. Best meal I've had in a long time! The guides also sent many gallons of morels and king boletes home with the bear hunters who wanted to try them.

I put a basket full of morels into the dehydrator and pushed the button, came back when it was done and I had tiny, tiny very little mushrooms left.  Is this normal? and how do I cook them now, in butter and garlic fried up?  Did I over dehydrate them?

Ya, they are mostly water. Soak to rehydrate, then cook like you said. I also love to grind dried mushrooms into a powder and cover steaks with it before grilling. So good!

I do that with birch boletes.  We put the powder in lots of dishes.

Quick tangent here, bearpaw mentioned boletes and I'm not as experienced with them. Do the yellow pored ones cause gastric upset or does anyone know what ones to avoid in Eastern Washington for boletes?
