Morel Hunting Season in Leelanau and Northern Michigan

Leelanau Morels!With last night’s rain, the morels should be popping in the woods today. The Leelanau Enterprise has a pair of features to aid you in the quest for these elusive and delectable mushrooms. In the first (Morels tasty – and elusive), Amy Hubbell takes a walk through woods and memory with Bucky Noonan who advises to look in old apple orchards, near poplar & ash trees, but also dying trees and logs. Your yard is often a good place too, especially for white morels.

The second (A morel hunter’s checklist) offers a checklist with good tips including the use of a walking stick to poke through the leaves under which morels often hide.

    I took my dad and boys out yesterday (Sunday) for a couple of hours. We found about 2 1/2 pounds of good sized whites and grays – nice mix. With the warmth expected mid-week we should see the final push for the season. Get out in the woods! The sounds and smells are wonderful!!!
