    Yes it is, unless its solid in the center, then it's a false morel? Did u find it around here? I was told they weren't this far south. If so, I know what I'm going to be doing next weekend

    They definately exist in AR. We find a few every year up here in Madison and Washington counties.

    Fine eating! An egg wash/fish batter roll is another great way to have them.

    Grew up in Southern Indiana. A good morel hunting spot was kept like a good fishing hole. We always found them around fallen trees, especially birch.

    We found 29 around Forest City today while turkey scouting some new hunting land.
    Born and raised in Indiana as well and found several thousands.

    Be sure to soak in salt water over night . It is time to turkey hunt if you are finding them , the first night of turkey season would not be the same without them. Some fine eating right there, The day before season is scouting and moral hunting time

    I went to the Ozark Folk Center in Stone County this weekend with my family.

    Went for a walk in the woods below those hexagonal cabins & found a nice one under an elm tree, but it was all alone.

    You think they are about done???

    I found two small ones this morning, but the area was tore up with deer sign. I believe the deer are getting to them before I am right now. The turkeys sure were gobbling this morning.

    Man, that's the truth.

    If it's not too specific, what types trees were they under/around???

    I've been looking around Elm & Ash trees.
