Added a new page after we identified a decent indicator for morel crops in Texas. See the post on lake levels vs morel flushes.
A good flush, about half the size as the monster 2010 flush. Harvested ~150 morels on Sunday, 303 on Monday and only 96 on Tues. I noticed they were getting bigger on Tues. If we get rain, maybe another flush on Friday, but only 25% chance I think.
Found 150 morels today in my favorite patch. This looks like it will be a great year.
On behalf of morel hunters in Texas, the 2012 Season is now officially over! Warm weather arrived too soon, rain too late, and a drought likely knocked morel fungi back in 2011. May we have good rain and a rare October fruiting of Morels in 6 months!

March 15, 2012 – Morel Season has begun! Spent 2 hours hunting, only found 2 morels, but hey… it made the season official! Again, these were found under Juniper (Mountain Cedar) trees. For my video on tips for hunting Morels in Texas see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxKjfGXCKQ4
