Sautéed them in olive oil, butter, garlic, salt & pepper. My wife went from "Are you sure these are safe?" to "We have to find more of these." after one bite.

From: Shag
Date: 26-Apr-19




Nice! They are done here in my part of the world...it's been 2 weeks since I found any and they were monsters in size, under sycamores...that signals the end of the season here. You cooked them up right! That's my favorite way to prepare them. The only thing that makes it better...whisk in some heavy cream to make a sauce and serve over medium rare, cast iron seared venison backstrap medallions. Heaven on a plate!

Yum yum yum. I've just started to look. Temps are to low at night. Maybe golden oysters will come first. JF

Afraid last weekend was it as far as morels go in my part of the world.

From: Jeff Durnell Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 27-Apr-19




I looked last weekend. No morels. I did see some Dryads Saddles just starting to peek out. A few folks I know just began finding one or two morels here in the last few days. I hope to get back out today.

From: Wayne Hess
Date: 27-Apr-19




Yep looks good , Starting to find the yellow ones too in the gray stage, Sun and rain makes them yellow. Still very good eating.

How about Half-Free Morels, They are sweet little morels.

I went out this morning... picked a bag full of prime Dryads Saddles, and filled my backpack with luscious Watercress and young wild onions, but found no Morels. Even without the Morels, I'm gonna eat good tonight :^)

I’ve looked a bit too and haven’t found any yet. Settled for pheasant back w dinner tonight but I’m looking somewhere new tomo.

From: B arthur

Went to a spot by my house after turkey hunting to check on the Morrells. 3 young guys with mesh bags were working my spot over. I felt violated. Guess for the last 20 years I should not have parked my truck along the road at that spot. I think someone figured me out!!

From: Sipsey River

You guys are lucky, there are non around here, too far south. I hunted them when I lived in Ohio. I missed eating them, nothing better.

From: AK Pathfinder
Date: 28-Apr-19




It will still be a couple weeks before they pop up in any numbers in N Idaho. We had several good fires last year and it should be a banner year if it ever warms up...we got a dusting of snow last night!

From: Wayne Hess
Date: 28-Apr-19




AK Howdy, I could never under stand why fires out west bring on good Morels. Back east here where we find Morels their has never been fires that I know about. Good luck to you when you hunt them.

From: Jeff Durnell Professional Bowhunters Society - Associate Member
Date: 28-Apr-19




Probably a survival instinct... perhaps they fruit heavy in order to drop more spores following a fire to reconstitute potentially damaged mycelium.

50's at night.

Forgot to mention last nights dinner besides the pageant back was fiddlebacks. When looking yesterday for morels, I cut across some wet junk and hit a patch I’d never noticed them before. Just out of my search area. My buddy’s too. They were just coming up when other patches were done. Fiddlebacks aren’t as good as mushrooms imo but a nice taste diversion. Ya all have them where you live? My daughter is in Tn now and she asked me if they’re down there. I really don’t know. I saw note of dryads saddle, most guys prob know but that’s same as pheasant back and what it’s called around here

I usually find a few while turkey hunting in Southern Illinois. This year, I found over 110 in a couple hours. They were mostly growing under red maple trees, where water flowed during rains. I usually find the nice true morels under ash and elm trees. It was hard to miss them this year. They were nice and big, and growing in the open!

These grow in the middle of a morel spot, so they keep me occupied while I wait for the morels to pop up.

I don't think so, but some folks do. They kind of smell like one, but it's pretty much gone after cooking... I think.

We don't have shrooms down here, too dang hot I guess, we do get some very poisonous ones.

At least I haven't really went out to hunt any assuming the latter.

What part of PA are you morel guys from? I'm a half hour over the NY border and I can't see any mushrooms growing. I am mostly around 2000 feet elevation, maybe that's the problem. I would like to know if I'm early or doing it wrong. Thanks Charley

I'm in the East between Philly and NYC.

From: flatshooter

Don't know much about mushrooms... Question: Can a morel be confused with a toxic variety of another kind? I'd love to try them but am cautious because of my ignorance.

Tried a new spot. Got enough for supper for the wife and I. Steak and fries, caramelized onions, with the Morels cooked separately in butter and garlic. Happy belly right now.

From: Wayne Hess
Date: 05-May-19




flatshooter you see the pictures , that is the good ones , their is a false morel, goggle it you see it don’t look like the ones in our pictures, Their is a Missouri Morel Hunting Facebook. The southern end season is going out. Tennessee is just a little father south. So I would think morel season is out, but I don’t know I have never Ben their. Get a good mushroom book and study up, A National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms is a good one. Good luck.

Well I guess this is the Mother Load for us. It’s very rare to find 30+ under a tree , mostly 4 to 6 and sometimes 1, gots to look at a lot of trees to add up. bodymanbowyer. We had asparagus and salmon pie last week very good.
