I found 4 today while mowing my lawn! I haven't found a morel in 20 years, (to busy fishing in the spring,) and there they are right next to my front step! shock() I'm gonna need to find a few more than that to make a meal out of them, though. LOL

By giants, do you mean the almond colored variety? These are White morels and peak usually later than the blacks we commonly pick.

Yep, the almond colored variety. I dont know if I'd call them "whites", at least not like the whites I pick in Marquette county. They were much larger and irregularly shaped. I've heard people call them "landscape morels"- I guess they mainly make their way into yards via bark mulch.

It's been a great year for morels.... My dad and I are up to 929 morels this year, and Saturday they were still popping!! Hopefully with the rain and warm weather the last two days we won't be done yet  :dance:

hunted off and on for a couple weeks and met only with false morels. spent the weekend up in Grand Marais looking for morels, fishing, etc. But I got home and took the dog for a walk and saw false morels again. Suddenly Black Morels! I got 14. and after looking further i noticed more, even smaller ones are coming up. Woo Hoo!

K&G, yes, those are whites(never white, always almond colored). When we lived on Mullet Lake, my wife would pick the occasional beer can sized white. These are the apple tree/dead elms prefering morel. We used to pick them off the golf course road from the shrine to the CC in Manistique when we were down there for Memorial weekend at her uncle's as well. These have a slightly better flavor from the blacks, less bitter after taste.

I think our mushroom picking is done for the year. We are busy with work, the kicker motor is back from the fix-it shop, and our spots are slowly drying up. What a great year with 1,131 morels for us! Hopefully next year will be about the same  ;D Good luck fishing..... See you on the water!!!

This was my worst yr ever for morels. I found about 30. All were very small and or dried up. I'm suprized to hear other people doing good. I wish I wouldn't have taken days off of fishing to be a tick collector. Back to fishing til next yr.
