Home » In The Wild » GIANT MOREL PIC


Robert (Bob) Meinecke of Omaha, NE shares this pic of himself holding a giant morel mushroom found along the Elkhorn River bottoms in western Douglas County yesterday on Sunday, May 9th. WHEW! That’s a biggie! Robert says it is the largest morel mushroom he has ever found. He estimates that it was just over a foot long and the cap was big as his elbow! It’s one of the larger ones that I have personally seen. Congrats Robert, and thanks for sharing the pic with everyone! That’ll be a meal in and of itself, won’t it? Dinner, what time?

See you out there, trying to convince Robert to take me morel mushroom hunting in his secret spots, ha!
