Isn't having trespassers who have no regards for privacy or respect for others properties watch over your land ...like having a fox watch the hen house??...
I did get out and checked by several elms on the 6acre wedge...not one mushroom....rain is needed to get things going here in Illinois.
Just checking in to see if anyone has had any luck and if so where...what state...and how big...some pics would be nice ..anybody got some of their harvests photos would be appreciated...as always good luck-Jon~
Not exactly J5B. I am betting on human nature, and self interest (greed) to work for me. These folks live on the adjacent property to my East. They are my only close neighbors, and if they want the morels, they will chase off any competition. Besides, without cameras or some sort of alarm system, I could not stop them either. By giving them limited access, and only to shrooms, I have put them on notice that if anything comes up missing or damaged, I will hold them accountable and revoke access, followed by legal action if necessary. I have their photos and contact info on my phone, and can take the law to their door if I must. Besides, I think of it more as a sacrifice play, I am not hunting them myself at this point, so they would otherwise go to waste. This way I get three sets of eyes watching my place for anyone who does not belong.
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
