Morel Mushrooms: Degree of difficulty as a visual

Dave Holmquist earned Morel of the Week for giving a photographic example of what it is like to hunt morel mushrooms.

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).
