Just wondering if anyone knows any good spots to look in the Houghton area. Send me a PM if you know a good spot to try. Thanks

 I found a bunch of white morels today. I have a couple rookie questions. They're not very big, if I wait until tomorrow to pick them will they get bigger or are they done, it's about 8 PM and the second question is is it best to cut them off at ground level or pinch them off or does it not matter?

Didn't hit the mother load but found enough to fry up. I could throw all the ticks I picked off me in with them so I have some meat...

Turd,
    Yes they will grow larger, I cut them at ground level, don't soak them too long in water they will lose a lot of their flavor, you have the exact same pocket knife as I do. Nice shrooms.

Sixteen ticks today and about twice that for blacks...no whites to speak of. We did get hammered by the black flies this weekend at a couple of spots.

Found fresh bear scat, too, today. I got into an area with a fair number of wooded vernal ponds where spring bear are likely feeding on Marsh Marigold and other emergent in these wetlands.
