As proof, a local buddy found his best shed of the season while doing field work on his farm. And the photo above was sent to me by an Illinois amigo, who found some dandy antlers while he and his wife were out seeking morel mushrooms. I don't know about other areas of the country, but here in the Midwest the morel season is highly anticipated. Morels are not only delicious, but hunting them is fun. Even better, motivation is easy to come by: Even if you detest eating fungi, you can sell your 'shrooms for great money (about $10 per pound last spring) to restaurants, grocery stores, or wholesalers.
