We need rain or we're not going to see a lot of them. There are some around but only in the perfect locations.

I wonder if tap dancers walk into a room, look at the floor, and think, I'd tap that. I wonder about things.....

I've never saw one in my neck of the woods. I know they find them in the Ozarks but I don't know if they are common in the Ouachitas where I live or the piney woods in south Arkansas where I hunt.

Here are some I picked in my yard . They are a bit on the small side, just getting started up here in the high country. Huckleberries, bushes everywhere in the NW here , don't even have flower buds yet, just soft light green leaves, like the soft needles of the tamarack now.

The ones here are Black morels , on average not getting as large as the white ones back east , but these can get some decent size on them also. Since these are just appearing, I left a group to keep an eye on them, to see how many get larger.

For now, I couldn't help myself ! Love these dried , even the water to soak them before cooking is precious liquid gold to use in anything, from ...seasoning meats,to casseroles. I'll take a couple of days off , then go again on walkabout across the road into the Natl. Forest lands for more hunting.

Here are the first batch, rinsed and drying on hardware cloth wire.

Happy hunting , everyone .

Nice Sharon, we get a lot of the black and yellow ones here. Usually the black ones come up a couple weeks before the yellow ones. I tend to like the blacks better myself, seem to have a better taste, but most around here prefer the big yellow ones

RMT, that's neat you have both varieties . I have never been able to try the yellow ones , I bet they both add their own unique taste to foods. Such lovely things to pick from the wild...

Season has been pretty dry up until the last week here. Have only found about a hundred. Found these last Friday, about 20 came from under a tree I picked 30 some two weeks ago from and the others all came from an area about 30 yards by 20 yards. Left some smaller ones behind going to go back later this week and see what else has popped up. Love looking at fur pictures but all these morel pictures are even better

From the pics Ive seen, yes the white ones get huge . I know how I feel when I see a very large black morel , i have to pause in admiration before picking them. Cant imagine seeing them as large as the white ones !

One thing I appreciate, the biggest ones still retain the rich special flavor as the smaller . And just as tender .

Im going to keep an eye on the group I left in my yard , to see if they grow more, and search on walkabout in a couple more days.
