Morel season starts in S. Illinois

March 26, 2009 at 05:51 PM

Let the morel madness begin.

Photographer Gretchen Steele of Coulterville has started what will no doubt be a strong of happy e-mails this year from morel mushroom hunters.

Steele is the first PrairieStateOutdoors.com reader to report finding morel mushrooms so far this spring.

Here are pictures of Steele’s first morels in Perry County.

Writes Steele: “Hope this means we are off to a good start and good season.”

Certainly there should be enough moisture this year for many more morel reports.

The first morels reported at Morel Mania.com were March 14 in Oregon. The first Midwestern morels on the popular Web site were from March 22 in Indiana. But even Morel Mania.com as yet does not have an Illinois entry.

I’m fixing to change that this weekend.  Boy does Ms Steele take a nice picture.  Yum   Yum.

My grandson has a youth turkey permit he’s going to fill and the morels are up.  What could be better?

My first Morel Mushroom was a smashed one! LOL I dont like them and had no clue what they where. I had a buddy jump my butt for doing it so now I pick them for him. I will trust you all that they taste well but I will never eat them due to not liking shrooms!

I’m glad my siloutdoors friends are finding them now. That means they’ll be here for the mushroom festival in Wyoming, IL. But I’m heading to Collinsville on the 17th so save me a few. By the time I get there they should be huge! Maybe I can see them from the interstate. Good job, Gretchen!
