Morels 2024
« on: April 22, 2024, 11:55:31 AM »
Curious if anyone is starting to see Morels popping up anywhere, or if the consensus is it is still too early with the occasionally nightly freezes.

 Came out in the bark mulch on our property about 2 weeks ago. Picked some up while turkey hunting last week as well.
“Under no pretext should arms and ammunition be surrendered; any attempt to disarm the workers must be frustrated, by force if necessary.”

If you are not willing to die for freedom then take the word out of your vocabulary.

Went Saturday and nothing, maybe a little early dry and cold still. We did find some asparagus.

I got out 3 weeks ago and found a bunch of the little orange cup fungus that usually predates morels by ~4-6 weeks. I’d bet first week of May is when they start fruiting.

I heard they are finding them in southern oregon right now.
What country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants.

Got a handful last weekend but it was hard work for not very many. I think it still needs a bit more time

Daughter and I went out Saturday all day and nothing in our normal producing area. Ground was dry for the most part as well.

Need more water in the east side where I am at. Was a pretty low yield year last year, maybe this year will be different.

Its starting in my areas, found 50 this am, mostly smaller, but in good groupings. Todays rain and coming warmer weather should make for a productive next couple weeks.


Update,  Today we picked for about 4 hours, ended up with almost 800.  :yike: This was a personal best day for us on non fire area morels.
Liked this "conjoined" one.  2 heads, 1 root.
It's going to be an epic year as we haven't even checked our best areas yet.

Nicely done!  :tup: I'm hoping to get out this weekend and do some looking. What elevation range did you find yours at if you don't mind sharing?

Well done! We're heading over to Winthrop this weekend, going to get out and do some looking.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

I had no idea we had sooty grouse in WA!  Very cool... are they protected or lumped in under 'grouse'?

They're lumped into "blue grouse" with Dusky as well.


My daughter and I found TWO whole morels on Friday on the E side... hope this rain produces some more for this week. Anyone know for how long a burn will typically produce for?
