Question Why no morels this year?

I'm and new member and new morel hunter. Actually, last year, while pulling garlic mustard on my property, I basically stepped into a patch of 80+ morels under a dead ash. While I picked most, several were left so spores would remain as well as shaking them out. This year, in that area - absolutely nothing. I only found 5 at about 20-30 feet away.
Any ideas what happened - will they come back again? I live in a suburban area - my lot is an acre- left very natural - no lawn treatment, chemicals. Morels found in adjacent undeveloped acre lot. I have pulled garlic mustard for years and never saw any morels, then 80+ and now practically nothing.
Anybody have any ideas? I thought about them all winter....
Thanks! J
