The morel season is in full force and Easter weekend proved to be a very good time to hit the field and gather the ever famous morel mushroom. My girlfriend, father and I decided to head out later in the day instead of messing with the crowds Saturday morning. We left about one o’clock and after 15 minutes of walking were right in the heart of our favorite morel beds. We were all surprised to find more morels coming up in the same areas we had cleared a couple days prior. So we decided to check out a few new areas and stumbled upon several more areas filled with morels. I have to say that this has been a really good year for our area, and I am glad I got to share the experience with my girlfriend who has never been morel hunting before. She proved to have a keen eye and if we were keeping count, probably found more than I.
