Morel hunt

Postby shad309 » May 7th, 2011, 11:54 am

Went for a late season morel hunt this morning. I think season is just about done, only found 2 this morning after finding 37 on Wednesday evening. So far this seson I have found just over 300. Not too shabby for 2 weeks of hunting.
The best part of this morning was a little bitter sweet... I was getting ready to cross a creek to look under a huge elm tree. As I was about to jump across I something caught my eye in the water- it was a find of a lifetime. This guy was surely a bruiser in his day. Part of me hates to find him this way but at the same time I am excited to have been given this gift from God. This old boy will be sent to my cousin to do a European mount. When I get it back I will post the pics!

All i have to say is wow and wow my friend! 300 morels is a challenging feat of its own, i only harvest about 125 or so a year and that is a beautiful buck, awesome eye guards and nice mass!
There's more fun in hunting with the handicap of the bow than there is in hunting with the sureness of the gun.
