I’ll be covering some of the dos and don’ts for morel mushroom hunting on the report which airs LIVE on the WOWT 6 News Thursday at 6 p.m. CST during the sportscast with myself and Ross Jernstrom or Greg Ortiz. If you miss it, you can see it on Saturday morning later in the station’s hour-long, 8 a.m. CST newscast. In addition, video replays of this outdoor segment are available on the station’s website here. From all of us associated with the WOWT 6 Sports Machine, thanks for watching!

By the way, hunting for morel mushrooms has been a great pastime in this country for a quite a while. Here’s a fun, historical photo from the National Morel Mushroom Festival in Boyne City, MI to share with you on this #Throwback Thursday (TBT).
