I think normally it would go into early June but we had a very warm dry spring. I was reading on a forum for people that hunt them up here and the general consensus seemed to be that all the ones they were finding were too far gone.

It's been so warm the June berries might even be ripe in June!! I usually jokingly call them July berries

Oh, thank God. I thought I was hallucinating that you posted and I responded. Well at least it's a shared hallucination.

I always miss morel season in MN (I don't usually go out in May or June), but I'm usually there for sulpher (sp) shelves in August...and those I really like, too.

I think I recall you posting in this topic too.

Maybe we just had a rip in the space-time continuum...

Or maybe it's a group hallucination...

The morel of the story, GLC, is that with reliable sources, you can harvest food in the wild. My dad took us out mushroom foraging when we were young--I recall all those spore tests, etc., I even did a science project on mushrooms. I did, however, get a 2nd opinion on my lone morel--even got a voice mail from my dad saying it was definitely a morel and to look for more!

I had never looked into it much. It appears to be very useful to get local advice on where to hunt. I've found some good local informants on morel habitats around here, and I would suspect that the same advice might not work elsewhere or might be useless, since it involves hunting groves of one particular species of tree. And it was apparently a poor season this year, probably due to hard drought, but it looks like the weather will normalize this year with the passing of La Nina. But I'm making a note to give it a try next March. Morels are just too dang expensive to not go hunting.
