The morel sightings reports were really good for most in the 2017 season…from the early southern morel hunters to the northern parts of the US. Reports from the northern Midwest States were good with the weather seeming to cooperate for most people. As the great morel made its annual migration, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ontario and those way up north were saying “its all good” too. New York was blessed with a good year as well.
For most in PA, OH, IN, IL, and Iowa it was pretty much a better than average year. The Pacific Northwest continued to have an above average year too. 2017 for most may have been one of the best overall years many have seen in some time with Mother Nature lending her cooperation along the way.
(Note: there was not a season review for this season or older historical seasons)
If you have issues with the latest sightings markers, try un-checking a month in the bottom left corner of the map and then rechecking the box next to the month. It should refresh correctly.
There are plenty of features on the new interactive map – zoom, filter by month, full screen and more. Below the map you can find a table listing of the 20 most recent sightings along with images and notes if they were sent – there is a “more pages” button at the bottom of this table.

First Time Hunting 🙂 A friend encouraged us to mushroom hunt this year. Our first time together was to be last week but got rained out. Sunday my wife & I went out after Church & found what we thought were morels. We took home a few to identify and tasted one after identifying. Went out yesterday after work. Our friend said this was a very good collection.
