We look in and around poplar trees, but have found them around ash as well. When the weather is just right you can see those succulent morels sticking right out of the ground. Once you get your mushroom eye on, watch out!!!! They are fun to find.
Am Cindy the 'shroom-Hunter Novice....Damita, I live in "Central" Central Illinois....kind of a distance from Charlston....sorry!
I went out hunting today for the 1st time at a nearby park/hiking trail for 3 hours but did not find any. Saw a man and lady also who came out to look in the area for morels---they said I was looking in the right areas, anyway. One of these times when I am hunting and find one, you'll probably hear my shriek of joy for miles! Has anyone else had any luck finding any? It has rained here and will rain off and on for the next 2 days.
