Old stands of elm trees are good spots. Mid-April in the midwest is the season. Also, a lot of people think that they grow in soggy areas (swamps). That's not really true. They definately need moisture, but well-drained soil is the key. If you are standing water, it is too wet. Look for hummocky ground along a river bottom.

Ahh, sauteed in butter, they beat squash blossoms. Up here in mn we watch for swampy areas with poplars growing around them. The things are magic - you can walk over them for an hour and suddenly spot one. By the time you sack it up, you're looking at a hundred others. Seeing that first one is the secret. :)

Word of advice, don't broadcast where or when you go morel hunting, or they won't be there the next year!

Old apple orchards, pin oaks, also have morels growing too....good luck.

Are Morels also known as "Molly Moochers"? If so.

Old apple orchards is a very good place to start looking after a rainy spell. Olong old fence lines is another good place to look in this area.
