        If you aren't an experienced mycologist, the supermarket. Never eat any mushroom unless you are absolutely certain what it is. Methods of certainty include spore prints, not just noting that it looks like the picture in a guidebook. If you are new to mushroom hunting find an experienced person to help you. There are too many mushrooms that are toxic and look just like their tasty cousins. Even Morels have a poisonous look-alike.

          I was walking in a stream bottom turkey hunting yesterday. Looked down just in time to avoid stepping on a morel. There was a good sackfull scattered in thin grass on the streambank under living trees just above the recent floodlevel. There was not one dead tree, grapevine or buckbrush nearby. This was near Miller Kansas about 20 miles north of Emporia.

            Way back in my college days I found following the scent of patchouli oil and the sounds of drum circles were the best indicators of good shroom habitat.

              a day after a rain around elm trees (better if they are dead) for morels.

              Korean shroom's can be found around oak stumps in the fall.

              Elephant ears (aka honkies) can be found on dead willow limbs in the fall.

                Sage Sam, sounds like you were "kissing the sky," in your college days!

                  Around dead elm, in greened up areas of the woods.
