    I eat some, give some away and dehydrate some. Truth be told, morels aren't my favorite mushroom, but I enjoy them mostly for the hunt. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    Bummer.Remember, you're looking for that low/mid 50's soil temp so it's time to begin searching higher elevations and on all sides of hills. Good luck. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    Took a quick jaunt through the woods this evening and found a few yellows. The younger & more fresh specimens were found higher on the hill. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    The Mrs. let me out for a couple hours today. Found 5 and some dryads saddle. I still say its a bit early. Weather is gonna be a bit chilly for a few more days which should keep them at bay til next weekend. I'd much rather a trickle season than a short one. However, they are out there. So scour those south/west slopes. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    That's kind of what I was thinking. When I made some only rolled in the dry batter mix they got pretty dry. If the cooking time was shortened, I'd bet they would have been the winner. Like I mentioned, I'm not very vell versed in frying food and I know undercooked morels can lead to upset stomach so I played it safe and shallow fried them for the recommended 4 minutes per side.

    I did 3 batches. First one I battered then rolled through the dry batter mix. The coating was almost too much and the morel flavor was hidden. The next batch I just drug one side through the batter and that let the morel flavor come through a bit more, but not being fully coated allowed the mushroom to dry out. The third batch I just rolled through the dry batter mix and again the mushroom dried out. They were all good, but the fully encapsulated ones allowed the morels to stay moist. I just need to lighten up my batter mix so it doesn't mask the mushroom flavor and soak up as much oil. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    I never fry food, but I couldn't resist trying a few different techniques. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    Was prepping a few things for mothers day breakfast when this big bruin walked past the window. Pretty neat. http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5cd79b53e158f/received_2038708586256779.mp4 Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    That's a Pheasant Back. Yes edible, but they can become ungodly tough and leathery with age. Taste like cucumber or watermelon rind. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    Still been a tad on the chilly side here so I focused on southwest facing slopes which get the most afternoon sun. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk

    Quick hunt this afternoon. Filled my bag in about 30 minutes. Hoping the wife lets me sneak out tomorrow, with a bigger bag! Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
