I looked in a few different spots over the weekend but didn't find any. I was looking around Dupage county, IL. The morel page I follow on Facebook has posted a couple finds in northern Illinois, but most of the activity is still down in the southern half of the state.
Anyone been out yet?
I think u have to rename your picture before posting it when it does that.
Ah, I want to try and find some this year. I’ve never really looked seriously.
From what I know, ground temps need to be steady around 50* for morels. I generally start finding them in late April and peak around mid-May in Waukesha co.
Usually mothers day for us walworth county.
probably will still be a while as night time temps won't be getting soil temp up enough even with current temps.
With the warmer temps and now rain is it getting close to time for morels?
naterpotater , yes to the Chantrelles. I found a decent amount in northern Wisco this past weekend.
