Come with us as we go out morel mushroom hunting on my Weekly Outdoor Report on Omaha’s WOWT 6 News tonight! Morels have popped up and are being picked in the moist areas of river bottom woodlands and parks here in eastern Nebraska!
Soon morels will be emerging in hilly forested areas. They are one of nature’s tastiest delicacies!
I’ll be covering some quick tips 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 Jeff Packer. 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.
