I went to take a look yesterday & found 6 small blacks. To small to pick but I have them marked. They want to come up, but it's been to cold. The weekend warm-up should get them going. South ohio say the're finding them. The ones I saw were in eastern geauga co, Good Luck
Hi hardwaterfan, I only have this one spot for blacks & they only grow on one hillside. This hillside doesn't look any different than the rest of these woods. It has ash & tulip poplar trees with fern & mayapples on the ground. Ive looked in other woods that are similar & found none. I saw your name on some mushroom sites that I have found. Morels are hard for me to figure out, Every spring I go to new woods & in the last 10 years I have exactly 2 spots. My in-laws live in boliver & find way more than me, but they have never found blacks, just greys & yellows. they won't show me their spots & I won't show them mine. It's a deadlock. I wish they grew in more areas up here. They are addicting. Good luck hunting.
yeah they are a lot of fun to try to figure out. its a challenge. im hoping that at least i might be able to find some blacks once they get real big and old. then maybe in years to come i can get them early. really difficult to scan ground as thoroughly as necessary right now without any particular area in mind.
i know theyre out there though, maybe. lol. thanks for the info and good luck to you as well.
for yellows i have my best luck in ash/elm mixed woods.
I'm pulling out now to head to my farm. My Son and I are going camping/hunting/picking for the weekend. I found 1 Black on Weds evening. Hoping to let the boy bag a turkey 1st thing Sat am, then spend the rest of the time picking shrooms. If we do shoot or pick anything, I'll post up some pics. Good luck to all.
I'm with you BC. I'm going to take my youngest son turkey hunting for the first time this weekend in the Zaneville area and it sure would be nice to find a nice mess of mushrooms !!! Good luck all & watch out for the kids chasing gobblers.
