Thank you so much Alana. I know this is a complex question. Your reply was extremely helpful.
If we understand the type of area we should be in, it makes the chances of success a little better.

For our first morel hunt, we were clueless and we hiked for hours and found nothing. We were within 1/4 -1/2 mile of where people were picking like crazy. Habitat is everything!

As for the flies, we will see them with mushrooms quite often. I have not heard of truffle flies.

When we find mushrooms where they shouldn’t be, we just kid they didn’t read MD (Mushrooms Demystified by David Arora). 🙂
