Good luck to everyone, this year is going to be slim pickins.
Too many people already picking the very small ones.

I know a secret area, I'm going to check it later today. We'll see if it is picked over.


Sure would love some nice morels & ramps with a nice steak!

We still got a foot of snow in most of the woods here. three foot banks around the driveway still exist all over the yard. It will be close to a month before we get morrels here this year.

Late spring this year.
Seems like winter was 8 months long.

Ours are just starting here in Western Montana.

Another week or so we will have buyers set up in town like we do when the huckleberries are ready.

Plenty to go around here, but we get a lot of out-of-state pickers that come in for the money.

We get alot of the same, especially the "burn" morels out here. Folks show up in throngs in the spring, where it burned the summer before.

Only found three so far but, I’m hoping more will pop up soon. I’m in the northern Virginia area and it’s been unseasonably chilly here so, fingers crossed.

Those things are amazing!!!!!

Hubby was just rambling on about this last night. He will be scouring the woods this weekend. Thankfully he gets the neighbors wife to cook them for him, cause I won't.

Gross.

I'm looking here this weekend in some spots in western mass. Just rained and is gonna be 70 and sunny this weekend.

I want to pick and sell them to restaurants but I have to get a foragers license to do that, it's kinda stupid and since the state is shut down till the 14th now instead of the 4th I don't know if the wildlife and fisheries office is open near me.

Either way I'm picking some I'll just eat them and give some to my pops too. A few years back I got a ton of black morals, enough that I was able to dehydrate a bunch and sell them on ebay.

Can't wait for the chanterelle and chicken of the woods and this really good type of coral mushroom I keep finding every year. I always leave some mushrooms so they will come back good the next year.

Anyone gather ramps and fiddle heads here also?

Make sure to get a wildcrafting permit from BLM etc..
or permission from private lands. Also gps coords are often a good idea, particularly if theyre audited by any agencies ie FDA

Good idea about the BLM, thanks for that tidbit. If I go on private lands I ask permission, most people don't mind especially if you share the spoils.
