Hunting in the Upper Midwest

In these articles I give details on what I have found to work over the pass 30 years of hunting. My season starts in the Spring with the Morel Mushrooms and Turkey hunting. As Fall approaches I turn my focus away from Fishing and onto the Archery Deer Season.

Morel Mushrooms

Here you will see when the season starts, Where to find the Morels, what items aid in helping you in the woods, how to promote Morel propagation, and explain the 4 stages of the Morel season (Early Grey’s, Small Yellow’s, Large Grey’s, & Large Yellow’s).
