    I have only ever found 1 morel in my life. I don't like mushrooms of any kind, but my dad LOVES morels. I would love to find a bunch for him! Maybe I'll get lucky and find some here at our new property. [​IMG]

    That one that you found is HUGE!

    Too risky for me, I'm not willing to risk my life on picking wild mushrooms. They are kinda neat looking though.

    We had some friends stop by today to buy some eggs. Of course, they wanted to go out and see the chooks. On the way back to the house, they spotted a morel. This led to a mushroom hunt that lasted over two hours! We only found little ones, though. [​IMG] Wish we had found a few that size!

    I haven't been out in a couple years. Used to go for mostly Oyster, Chantrelles, and Boletes. Sorry no pictures. We are behind this year, probably can start soon though. Just need it to warm up a little.
