I find mine in kinda wet places...Not swampy, but just moist...

But I have found them on the top of mountains, out turkey hunting, found some one time in the middle of a ramp patch...They tasted kinda funny too...It was weird, the flavor of the ramps mixed in with the mushrooms...

But the best luck I've had is in damp areas...

We always look for sycamore trees in damp areas up one level from creeks. for some reason sycamores and morrells have the same enviroment.

I forgot, you westerners dont know what a ramp (wild leek) is...




Wild onion type plants...VERY STINKY...but delicious...

The Wild Leek,
also known as the Ramp, or common Wild Leek (Allium tricoccum) is our best wild onion and a source of food and spiciness all year round.
Broad, smooth, light green leaves, often with deep purple or burgundy tints on the lower stems begin arriving in small troops as soon as the snow disappears. Scallion like bulbs are strongly rooted just beneath the surface of the soil. Finish off your identification by tearing a leaf or stem and taking a sniff of the strong and distinctive onion scent of the Leek
Look for soil habitats that are sandy, moist and often on hillsides and near streams. I almost always find them while searching for Morels so a bad day of mushroom hunting can often be a good day for leeks!
The leaves are are very tender early in the Spring and the bulb is edible year round, though they can toughen up in the summer. Don't bother collecting more then a few handfulls unless you want to blanch and freeze some, because the wild Leek is very pungent. Use it sparingly and you'll have good luck as the flavor of both the leaves and the bulb are quite strong.


Here are some mushroom pics too...

this is an interesting topic. everyone has their own particular set of "rules" for finding them.

here in Ohio, the time to start looking usually falls just before and during our wild turkey hunting season (beginning of april to begginning of may), but the weather plays a crucial part on exactly when the "motherloads" will pop up. i start looking when the temps hit about the mid60's during the day. usually, right after a good rain with the first warm temps of the year will bring em out.

there are countless things that people claim to use to find them. southern facing hillsides, sycamore trees, swampy areas, around dead elm trees, low lying areas, near mayapples, etc. etc.

it's more luck than anything. after all the weather & temperature conditions are met, you still have to be in the right place.

my advice for here in ohio is to cover a lot of ground and use a combination of all places above. i have very good luck in low lying, moist areas with either dead elm trees or sycamores. i seem to have good luck around green briar bushes as well. i also look for areas with lots of small green plants growing in them, as opposed to moslty dead leaves. i have found them in wierd places though, such as in the middle of a pasture field on occasion that debunks all the standard thinking.

move s-l-o-w-l-y through the area that you are looking in. nealing or squatting also helps me to see them better, as opposed to looking down from 6ft above. take a stick or hiking staff to move vegitation that they might be hiding under/behind, and for scaling/decending hills. don't get frustrated. some years you will find bunches, others not so many. just be glad to have a good excuse to get out and enjoy the woods!!

We have 52 acres in Claysville PA. I thought this might be interesting to look for.

There are many places near creeks/streams with mayapples. Lots of fallen timber and such with leaves and moist soggy areas.

Thanks for the info.
