Morels: get yourself a handful son... -

Post by BiffCo1138 » Tue May 13, 2008 6:34 pm

Anyone else enjoying the hunt this year? :D

I thought I'd start a thread for pics and tips. Just found 52 healthy happy morels this morning, I'll get the pics up tomorrow prolly...

Dont think so... Do you know if there are elms or sycamores there?

We have the California Sycamore. But i just read about it for the first time right now. But nothing like that really. Mostly oaks, pines, eucalyptus in my area, the few trees there are.

always wanted to go morel hunting...found out that in my grocery department we sell dehydrated morels...boil some water, drop a few in, and presto big waterlogged morels....>< the broth is nice....but once you've tasted a morel caught in the wild...you can never go back...god, i wish there was a myco group in my area. i would seriously take a few days off from work, and go camping, and morel hunting.
52?
god, you are so lucky ^^

You lucky.

I've only found one morel in my life. It was a huge one though. Still, doesn't do me any good right now!
