Iíve gone looking for Morelís in the past and have found exactly 0 mushrooms.

Today I seen a couple Manitoba guys finding some Morels. They were huge and small. Black and Common Morels.

So I decided to take an hour off the couch and see what I could find behind the house.

Hereís what I found.

Look like the ones I find here-black morels I believe.
They look like they are just popping up.

They might be dried up and gone in a few days.

In most cases, it's best to pick morels when you find them. Some do get bigger, but most won't. There is plenty of animals and people in the woods to eat or take morels, if you leave them.

In Nebraska if you see one you better get it as they don't last long. MB might be different.

Ok good to know. These ones should be pretty safe since they are about 30 seconds from my front door and on my property. But they might not be safe from animals or drying out. Iíll keep an eye on them daily and see if they grow and pick them.
Obviously they grow bigger than this, they are roughly 1 1/2Ē. Not the end of the world if they disappear or shrivel up. Kinda fun to see how they progress each day.

They are all over the place here alongside all the old grown in logging roads,guess they do well where there is rotting corduroy.
Very few if any people picks them here.They only last a couple or three weeks.
If I'm bearhunting I pick a couple bags,but dont go out of my way to get them

The finest spots I have seen are places along the river that had burned the previous year. Don't know what it is.....

Iím not sure. Iíll take a look at them tomorrow and see. Think Iíll cut one in half and see what Iím dealing with. Looked at some pics online and think I have a good idea on what a false morel is now.

Nice! Thatís a lot of mushrooms! We have lots of clear cuts and burns, so Iím sure Iíll hit the mother load if I give it an honest effort.

Mine here are starting up. Always the black morels.

As Keith mentioned, I too have watched them and why some get huge and others don't, I'll never figure why. So I just basically pick them as I find them, unless they are so small that Ill leave them. Nothing else likes them, deer, elk, my wild turkeys, bear, they all leave them alone.

No one picks out in these woods so I have the forest to myself, as well as my own place.

These I found just on part of my place this afternoon. I'll go back out later and get more. I like to dry them , store them in glass containers, and use them all through the year.

I think morels are the easiest mushroom to positively identify.
Just dont eat any toadstools,you might start to hallucinate.
