Picking morels requires you to be observant. Anyone can do it, it's just a matter of training yourself to actually see what is around you.
Probably you'll begin by looking at the ground directly in front of you. Gradually, your gaze will extend out and little ahead of where you are walking at a slow pace.
Oh, that walking stick? Leave it at home. You're bound to lay it down at some point while investigating what appears to be morels, then walk off without it.
Another good tip, this one from personal experience is when you find one mushroom take some time and look closely at the area around the find.
Chances are if you find one, there will be others close by. Learn all you care to know about morel mushroom hunting, preservation and cooking at Outdoorama next week in Novi. Visit www.outdoorama.com for more information.
