    About two weeks til I can start one of my favorite hunting seasons. Morels. I've got 45 acres of woods, bottoms, some Sycamores, some swamp, and lots of leaf duff. Permits issued, bags washed, sticks sharpened, special glasses cleaned and bug repellent stocked. Open season!!!

    I agree!
    Morel season is one of my favorite seasons also. Unfortunately spring planting season interferes with morel season. 20200412_184802.jpg 20200411_180226.jpg 20200418_121317.jpg

    The morel of your tale is you can run a tractor at night; hunting morels at night is a little tougher. ;)

    Never heard of such a thing. There's a season for these? As in you can't pick them out of season?

    The season is when they are there to be found. Usually around Late April to late May in MI. Slightly different seasons for the rest of the Midwest.

    Morels can "get" you, too. And there are false ones out there.

    Permits issued? That’s a joke you don’t need no freaking permits.

    You need a permit to pick mushrooms? Oh! I see you're in Illinois.

    I’ve been poaching shrooms there for years. Had a close call once but my camouflage clothing helped me hide from the land owner.

    Or, I might just invite you to the cabin for a dark brew. We don't do "lights".

    Yep...Ramps are just starting here. No Fiddleheads or Morels yet. I like Pheasant Back 'rooms as much as Morels iffin you find 'em early enough.
