I plan to spend this summer of 2014 about 25 miles N/W of Butte. When do I need to arrive to get in on the start of Morel Season? Are there public grounds available to hunt Shrooms on? What is the earliest and latest dates Morels are found in that area?
Hello, and welcome to Montana Mushrooms!
Natural morels usually start flushing in April or May, and continue to flush through the spring and early summer. They usually rest when it gets hot and dry.
There is plenty of public land to hunt shrooms in Montana.
The actual dates vary from year to year and you just have to watch the moisture, temperature and elevation.
We talk about the morel flush on this site as it unfolds.
