The Great Black Forest typically produces the first morels of the season. The sighting of the black morel signifies the beginning of the morel season. This page is intended to highlight this event and serves no other purpose other than generating a woody.
As all good shroomers know, when someone finds one you stop automatically, like the whole world just stopped spinning. You look at every inch of ground in front of you and every inch you just covered all from the spot you were stopped by the great "I got one call". Needless to say with my keen shroom eye and all of my shroomin experience I spotted one almost the second after Tim did so we called the dollar thing off. We ended up with about 11 blacks, 8 of which were the size of my thumb. 3 of them were about the size of two thumbs. I did find one twin peaks and got them out together. I hope Brad can get a picture of them for this page thing on the net. He might add that in previous years the earliest I have ever found any blacks was Apr. 10. Maybe a new record for these parts.
Just wanted to write and say that my buddy and I found eleven Blacks this weekend (Mar. 29) in Indiana. This is the earliest I have ever found them. Good luck with your hunting. email@example.com
These chronicles will be updated by the Master of the Black Forest, so that all can monitor the coming of the new season. Check back soon because as the Great Black Forest continues to produce it signifies the coming 1998 season.
