Morel mushrooms

Anyone on here thought about training there dog to find these delicious little treats. Could earn some extra $ in a hurry on a good mushroom season.

I have no idea whether this theory has any validity or not, but I try to strongly discourage my dogs from going anywhere near mushrooms. If they sniff one I will actually scold them... Simply because I watched a friend's dog go through mushroom poisoning after eating some poisonous ones and it was not something I ever hope to see again.

All my GWPs have been hellions on running down turkey tracks and flushing them. Happened yesterday in a corn field ... Mushroom season is turkey season and I keep my dogs out of the turkey woods then. I wear camo and hunt mushrooms as quietly as possible so as to not disturb my turkey woods. Many days I am hunting both in the same day and woods. In some states it is illegal to run dogs on public lands that time of year for similar reasons.

Where are you hosting your photos? Huxley and I found the first of the season, but I haven't used Photobucket for ages.
