I was in southern Indiana over the weekend and found 24 moral mushrooms then I get a call this afternoon and my friend found another 28 in the same spot today. Any one else finding any ?

If the temp around here would ever get above the 60's we might have a chance.  A cool, fairly wet and late spring.  Gary

In my realm they started up with great promise a few weeks ago then it turned back cold. I've found some since but I fear it will be a poor harvest for me.

Seems to be a good year for some folks in my area but I searched in vain. Lindy found one quite by accident the day after I left to come back to work.  :-[

Any particular type of location or terrain I should focus on? I've heard everything from under sycamores on a creek, under ash, to under cedar.

I'm sure they're out there.  Somebody put 3 on the counter at the chainsaw shop near Salem last week.  I'm no good at hunting them, nor have I taken the time yet.

I keep forgetting whether the cap on Morels is fastened to the stem, up inside or at the bottom of the cap!  :-\

The ones I find are fastened at the stem.
And they haven't killed me, not once.

 I found 1 a few weeks ago, week later found 10 more in the same spot, and over the weekend I found 25 more. I plan to go out today if I get a chance and do a more thorough look. With the rain yesterday and warm temps in the forecast I think there will be a good crop by this weekend  ;D

It looks like I suspected, the stem is attached to the skirt of the cap!

There's no overhanging cap!

Note that the stems (actually entire mushrooms) are hollow. There is a morel called a "half-free morel" that the cap over hangs the stem more. Have to look it up. They also have the completely hollow stem. I've only found one, and I don't recall if they are edible, although I believe they are but double check.

I was going to look for some this week, we will have our first 60 degree days, then an 80. Last year I found some (about 30-35) in my leased sugarbush.

Once the snow melts and it warms up there are a few places on the farm that grow good morels every spring....

Last year, I had about 12-15 of them sprouted right in the middle of my back yard!

I just mowed around them and then one day, they were big enough!  digin_2

 I wish they'd come up in my back yard. That'd save me several miles of zig-zagging through the woods getting covered with ticks :o

 They're worth it though as long as I find several :)

I think that that's what Bibbyman posted quite some time back and he called them False Morels!

It could be, I have also heared of the half-free morels called "false morels" as well. Here's the half free morel on the Missouri conservation site:

Here's the ones I refer to as false morels:

In MI we have verpa bohemica which is what my fellow morel hunters call false morel
 They actually look similar to the half free. We also have gyromita esculenta or beefstakes is what we call them. To me they look nothing like a morel.  I won't eat them but I know guys that have been eating them for 40 years without issue.  I guess they are poisonous to some people. We have decent morel production every year on our property and some years we have pulled over 20 pounds. Last couple years were weak though.
