WI & MN ready

Hi everyone. I just found this website today! I was hoping someone could give me an idea when the Morels may be ready (estimate/approximation) in WI and/or MN.

When I was a wee thing, an entire group of my parents' friends used to travel from SE Iowa to MN on a mushroom hunting excursion and I miss those trips, so I'd like to surprise them with one this spring!

I now live in Chicago and needless to say, there aren't many Morels growing on urban landscape here!

Thanks for your help!

Re: Re: WI & MN ready

I'm from central Iowa as well. The end of April is a good time to start looking in Southern Wisconsin and Minnesota.

I grew up in Ames, and have hunted these parts for years. Chances are we know each other. Shoot me an email if you'd like.

I'm in the southwest suburbs of the Twin Cities and I always start looking at the end of April, but usually start "finding" around mid-May - so after this weekends rain we should be in good shape for getting some good finds. I also do some hunting in Northwestern Wisconsin and usually start seeing them up there around end of May...can't wait! Good luck to you! Plan that event for about 2 weeks from now!
