  1. I thought about those abundant years and the ash tree decline, and wondered if they had actually begun to die way back then. All of the ash trees are now dead and other than the one area, these morels were growing singly.
  2. We found around 20 here, total. We might check to see if any late blacks come up after the cold snap we had. There may be a few more considering how mature the rest were. Most were in one small area that is usually fairly reliable.
  3. They look perfect! We found a few small blacks at our spot today.
  4. It seems like forever since I've been on. My last few years of mushroom hunting havent been great due to weather, but fingers crossed for this season. As of a few days ago there were no morels in my early black spot in southern PA. But I've seen that a few have been found locally. The weather forecast looks like we may have a slow, drawn out season which is better than the early heat followed by cold that we've had for several years. I hope all ofnyou have a great season. Good luck everyone!
  5. I'm actually in Orrtanna, between Gettysburg and Chambersburg.
  6. Very cool! I have some king trumpet plugs and a large block of shitake spawn to inoculate logs. A friend gave me wood from an oak he cut but I think the logs are too old now. I'll have to cut a tree down. Luckily I live in the woods and have a small one picked out that is in the way of hunting from my blind.
  7. Dave, the stalk of this one doesn't remind me of typical black morels. Although the cap, other than color, is perfect. Maybe it's due to the weather this year being so different. It's only been above 65 a few days here and people are finding large yellows in orchards. We found some of the smaller species in our woods the other day. I'm not up on all of the Latin names anymore since they changed. Not as many as we had hoped, but still the most we’ve found at home.
  8. We found a few in southern PA yesterday.
  9. I'm not personally familiar with this mushroom, but keep enjoying the hobby.
  10. I agree with svs. It looks like a black staining polypore.
  11. I will be getting out for the first time today. We've had so much rain that witnessing even worth looking.
  12. Nice finds. I am hoping to finally get out today. We have had tons of rain so I hope the mushrooms aren't too waterlogged.
  13. I'm looking forward to chanterelles and black trumpets in a month or so.
