    The morel season is fast approaching. We had a lot of snow this year so the mushroom hunting in Idaho will be good.

    I can just see it now, both Daffy and Donald will be in the woods and they will be standing above the Shroom saying its Shroom season and the poor little Shroom will be saying that its Duck or Rabbit season.

    I been eagely awaiting the season down here in Southern Illinois. The last few years have been very disapointing in aquireing a good mess. The old timers complain that the wild turkey population which has exploded down here is getting to them before the can be harvested by humans.

    Us kids used to eat them by the bags full every sping. Yellow, black & gray sponges, black tops, & elephant ears. We would spend 4 or 5 hours in the woods picking then head for home. Grandma would soakem in salt water, slice in half, flower and fry in cast iron skillet. Had no idea then that they sell for 4 to 5 times the price per pound of the finest steak.

    Ok, that makes sense Gary - I used to live in Ft Wayne and on my travel to and from Columbus Auto Auction I would sometimes hunt in your area. In answer to your question, yes it is a bit early. We see the blacks here about the second week of may or sometimes sooner. Last year I found 600 in a small woods on May 1st

    How do you distinguish the bad from the good?

    I have been hunting morels since 1949 and I just know. If you dont have someone to go with who does know, it can be risky. I have seen people eat the wrong ones and they were deathly sick for several days. There are web sites to read up on it but I suggest going with a seasoned hunter the first time.
