Everywhere I go ,I seem to find a handful.
Or the wife always finds them.
Probably a frying pan full after I cut that big one in half.

Found a few around Conconully last week, kind of sporadic and spread out. Think it was a bit early and really dry. Found them anywhere from 3,300 to 4,150 elevation. It finally rained hard the day we left, I imagine they're really starting to pop now.

Saturday before Mother's day we got out near Winthrop. New area that had a good sized prescribed burn last spring. Found one small patch of morels, they appeared to be brand new and small. Left me feeling like we were a little early still.

Anyone been up looking in the Schneider Springs burn area this year or last?  I cleaned up in there the year after the fire but haven't been back since.  Wondering how much its fallen off and if it's worth the 3 hour drive to poke around a bit.

I poked around 3 different weekends 2 weeks apart last year and didnt see nearly as many as there were the year after the burn. I only found some on one weekend. They still made a good soup but we didnt find anywhere near the same volume as the year before.
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.

Thanks!  That saves me a lot of driving.

Hit some of our higher elevation spots today, did fairly well. Lots of good sized ones.  One thing we did notice is that quite a few were boogered up on the top half....guessing they sprung out too early, then got frozen a bit.

Were the tops bitten off? If so, it could be deer or elk eating the tops which is not unusual.

Nope. Tops were intact, just shrunk in/shriveled up, rest of shroom was in excellent condition. Of the 300 we found, a good quarter of them were like that.

Found some better sized ones last weekend at roughly the same elevations. The recent moisture has sure helped. Still no big patches though.

I'm jealous of your spot. (those are glowing visible)  :chuckle:
Most of our spots you have to be hard core on your game to see em. (mostly blacks, and blend in very well)

It is a great spot, they stand out nice against the Tamarack needles. Heading to a new spot this weekend, hopefully will have some luck (fingers crossed)

Kellama, You have found them in their prime! Get them while they are there. I haven't been able to get out much this year but happy hunting to everyone!

We have been hitting our higher elevation spots 5-6000' and where the snow is gone, they are fresh and big.
