For those who don’t hunt morel mushrooms, here’s an example of the degree of difficulty.
A week ago Dave Holmquist messaged, “Just done fishing and I’m going to hunt for morels.”
Shortly, he messaged back this photo, “That was quick, lol.”
As you can see, it is not always that easy.
MOTW, the celebration of foraging for morel mushrooms in spring, runs Wednesdays in the Sun-Times as warranted. Submit nominations by message on Facebook (Dale Bowman), on Twitter (@BowmanOutside) and Instagram (@BowmanOutside) or email (BowmanOutside@gmail.com).
