Morel mushrooms are probably the most wanted schrooms hunted for by sportsmen and women across the midwest.
Dan Stefanich got out to a Chicagoland location and got a few. Where? As we say in Chicago, "Fagedabadit". No one shares morel spots. I don't think that it's fair, do you?
Anyhow, here is the email that Dan sent over along with a couple photos.
Hi Don- we finally scored on some mushrooms (after plenty of hunting). Although last weekend would have been the best time to get out, my son Nathan and I found a nice bagful Tuesday afternoon along the edge of a cattail swamp. A good rule of thumb for morel hunting- when the lilacs start blooming, so do the morels. I'll try to save a
bag for you!
