    Didn't look hard today. But I did not see any. Did get a nice mess of Wild Leeks though. they're awesome. I think it is still too early up there since there was 6" of snow two weeks ago.

    Not sure about your county but one thing is for sure, all of the "morel indicators" are out of whack this year!

    The difference between north and south is incredible this year. I made my plans ahead as I always do, reserved a place to stay up north for my week off, and it blows. There aren’t any up in the northeast. Not where I go anyways. Would have been a good year to save money and stay home.

    I’d say the last of the frost is trying to leave the ground up in the NE

    I agree RBFish wild leaks are great and I felt like I was in N.W Mi. With some of these new woods I have been checking out, amazing how abundent they are in the N.E woods, never new.

    They are out but miniscule in size as they are just starting. ReallyBigFish where did you get the leeks?

    Cool. Thanks for the input. I guess I’ll give it a few more warm days. The most I’ve ever found is what I stumble upon turkey hunting. A hat full every year. This year I’m dedicating some miles to them though

    Searched Northern Ogemaw county Friday evening and bit on Saturday and only found a couple Beef Steaks. The leaks are up but the trillium are far behind, very little grass. On a positive note, lots of rain over the past weekend with more coming later this week. The last of the frost in our area just south of Rose City finally pulled out of the shaded areas so I am hopeful this weekend we will see some growth. On a sour note, it appears I lost two more of my secluded areas to cutting over the winter. I had seen the machinery in the area last deer season and was hoping they wouldn't come as far as they did but, it is all gone:mad:

    Yeah, I've picked em with snow in the deep roadside ditches not hit by the sun much before, but it's crazy this year. Hope the window hasn't closed on the blacks yet. Seeing white varieties down here is usually when they are strong up North.
