Morel Motherload
    #4090040 - 04/23/05 11:58 PM (12 years, 9 days ago)

I had to work all day today.  I got off with a few hours of daylight left and decided to have myself a walk on a private acreage to see if the rumors I'd been hearing of a great morel season were true.  After about 10 minutes in the woods I found a dead elm with lots of bark on the ground around it  I was thinking to myself it must still be to cold and at that moment I  looked down and right at the tip of my boot there was a small grey I had knocked over and nearly stepped on.  I got down on my hands and knees and picked a pound in no time.  I didn't have a sack, knife, nothing.. I really wished I had my camera on me but sometimes thats how things are.  I took my cap off my head and began to fill it, that quickly filled so I took of my t-shirt and tied into a sack.  After hunting for an hour and half I had my shirt filled and went back to the car to unload then headed out again. After that I got into a hillside filled, I mean filled with yellows.  I walked past so many and just left tons out there, I felt greedy enough already but I know alot of old timers who don't get out these days that will love them!  I ended up filling a 50lb burlap potato sack completely up.  Here they are, not bad for a newbie.


Sorry about the low quality pic but you get the idea  :grin: :sun:

Amazing haul there, do you plan on eating them all up fast or preserving some?

Thanks guys.

I'm going to try preserving some as an experiment but most of them will be consumed by me and the many happy people I give them away to. I know alot of old timer woodsman how can't get out like they used to so I'll be driving around and sharing the wealth tomorrow.

Thanks for working on the picture guys, I don't even have editing software on this system and I just had to get it up as fast as possible. 

I found these in Northwest Iowa on a 40 acre woodland some close friends own.  I will be going out here shortly with a nice camera and a real sack  :grin:
Word spreads fast though, I'm not the only person who can use this ground so hopefully they are still there.

damn, looks like a crazy season over there.

seeing big, untouched patches of yellows is definitely one the coolest mushrooming experiences ever :smile:.  if you weren't hooked on morel hunting yet, I bet that'll do it :grin:.

very cool, congrats

DH

Very hooked, I just bought a nice cannon digi cam, going out take some nice pics in the wild, I left a few patches just for this, hopefully the word hasn't gotten out yet and they are still there.

Congratulations, man! That is great.
If that water you have them soaking in isn't salt water for some reason, I'd pour it out in an area that looks good for morels. That's what i did with trumpets and chanterelles last year, and i can't wait to find out if they were conceived!
Anyway- wonderful finds and wonderful pics. It seems like Iowa is the place to be this year.
