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!
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!
