Yuck, I am not fond of snakes!
We found about 3 dozen or so morels this year. The problem was that we only found one or two in each spot! It took a lot of hunting to find the 36 we did find!
I saved a few back and dried them for scent work with my dog. The season is just too short that there is not much opportunity to work on it with fresh ones. I don't know if the dried ones will work or not.
