Welcome to Michigan Morels.
Find out where to find morels. When and how to pick morels. On
the Morel Message Board, find mushroom photographs, discuss things
like preserving morels, paper, plastic or mesh bags. Mushroom Links
and much more! Find out about mushrooms such as the Meadow
mushroom, Chanterelle mushrooms, Boletes, Lobster mushrooms, Hen-of-the-woods,
Chicken-of-the-woods, Blewits and many more wild mushrooms that
are fun to hunt, and good to eat.
You can eat any mushroom that grows... once!
There is "No Sure Cure" for
mushroom poisoning! If you have a bad
reaction, you will either Live, or Die. Either way you're gonna regret
Learn from experienced hunters 1st. If that's not possible, then
please buy the Audubon Mushroom Field Guide as a starter book. Especially
if you are going to try hunting mushrooms other than morels.
SAFETY IS A MUST for all wild mushrooming or edible plant foraging
season is upon us!
04/22/13 Quite a cold winter. Had snow cover to go with
it. This spring has been cold and very wet with flooding
in April. Supposed to get some warmer (but not hot)
temps in the last week of April and into May. Let's
04/30/13 Forecast for northern MI area is good.
Mid 70's with some rain every 2 or 3 days possible for next week!
05/08/13 Well, nature threw us a curveball
again! May turned hot in a hurry (temps in 80's) and
rain didn't come, but wind did. Dry in north right now
Poor picking so far. Chance of rain a couple of times on
9th, 12th and 14th with cooler temps in 60's. Possibly this will
save the season for black morel hunting. We'll see..
It's not about how many... it's about how much you enjoy the
in the woods!_____________________________
2012 was a bust! Extremely warm winter, lack of snow,
hot March, cold April, dry May, had left many scratching their
heads. Morels were found very early that year, but overall
it was a very poor season.
2011 had cooler than normal temps that spring, the morels
started about 10 - 15 days late. But once they got started,
they took off like crazy with all the rain! Lot of people had
their best year since 2003!
