You carrying a full size? Looks to be out of the holster a good ways.
Yeah, just on the belt. Full seated.

I wasn't going to take the larger pheasant but it was still extremely soft and tender, same as the smaller. Sauted just in butter, not my favorite but if you scrape the tops off, bread em in a seasoned cornmeal breading then fry in butter. 👌

That's where I am. Seems to be dependent on elevation down here. I've found a few handfuls in the last month in gallia.
I'm in meigs county and the three I found were Damn near the highest elevation around my house. No moisture around, none of the go to dying trees to indicate a good spot. These damn things are finicky man haha.

The patch I found was the highest elevation...didn’t find anything anywhere else.

My main area I believe is about 650-900ft and I've found most of em in the bottoms. It's like shed hunting, you can check all the spots that look the best but they just seem to find you. I still think it's a tad early in my woods, still not very green. Go down the road a few miles and it's super green and may apples up everywhere.

With this warm weather comming should really get good by weekend, then after next weekend going to hit mid 80s... around 1st of may or so should have the big ass golds and hopefuly lots of them. They seem to b a week to week and half behind most seasons. But i really believe that all of ohio will b loaded in week or so. Bet there will be pics on here of big ass piles of morels😁

If the peckers r still comming up and fresh then still got another couple weeks usualy of good hunting. Dog pecker types are strange .. one year hundreds in in area then none some other years. Shrink up a lot in skillet...but still a good shroom.
