This is the sixth year running for the Sightings Maps and it continues to be popular. The Great Morel is often asked "is it time yet?" or "are they popping in my neck of the woods?". The sighting maps are here to see if we can't help each other out a little bit.

Markers will be posted to the US map and will identify where reported findings have occurred. The Great Morel will attempt to maintain two maps, a current year map and a historical map. Click on the map to explode it to a larger one and look for markers indicating sightings.

New as of 2007 is The Great Morel Message Forum. Feedback has been positive on the forum so The Great Morel is making this a permanent fixture for the visitors of The Great Morel website. You can click here to access the forum. Please review the guidelines carefully and post sightings in postings specific to your state. The Great Morel will not scan this forum for sightings therfore, if you would like your sighting to be mapped, please and be specific as to your geographical loction.

Notes: 2010 Reports from the OK, TX areas seemed to have reported normal harvest. Most regions reported earlier
than normal finds. The unseasonably warm spring for many has played havoc on the season, couple that with a lack of serious
precipitation (up to two weeks for some) and you have a not-so typical morel season for several regions. Nebraska and Missouri
reports were down, as were TN and KY. Reports in from OH, IN and IL were strong early and slow late. Early reports from IA, MN, MI and WI are quieter
than past seasons. Have not had too many reports of "Best Year Ever" and waiting on the final summaries and results from some.

Note: The 2008 reports from the south and central states of OK, KS, MO and AR were avearge compared to 2007 banner crop. The states of VA, PA, MD reported an extremely great season this year, along with the Midwest states of IN, IL, and OH. Average reports from the states of NE, KY, TN and WV. The overal reports from upper Midwest states such as WI, MI, IA, and MN were mixed and the jury is still out for some. Weather played it toll in certain geographical areas as usual. The east coast states NY, MA, and ME are reporting above average crops too.

Note: The 2007 early reports from the south central states were very good and remained so for most of the year. Elsewhere many were reporting earlier finds than usual, but cold blast had slowed reports. If you look at the map, you'll see the tick marks for that time period were far and few between. The weather got back on track for most of the midwest and upper midwest states, thus the reports were somewhat typical for this time of the season. Upper midwest states reported about normal as the season kicked in for those shroomers, bu the season was hampered by lack of rain.
