     Come and join Chris Matherly in Georgia for the 2012 Morel Mushroom Hunting Club's Foray. If you have followed this site, then you have seen photos posted for the past 5 years of these giant beautiful Morels that we found here in the very deep South! This is a remote location, and we have just received clearance to have a day of hunting in this very rare site, where giant Morels are gonna be there dry weather, wet weather, it don't matter, they are always here every year, and just enormous in size. You may find them up to 14 inches or more, and they have 1/2" thick walls! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity so make sure you register immediately, as it will be on a first come first served basis, and limited to the first 20 registrants.

We will have our "Base Camp"  in Forsyth, GA.  located about 10 miles north of Macon, Georgia. Details will be emailed to you after you register. There are also two close by State Parks that you can camp at if you wish.

Registration fee is for the cooking demonstrations, Power-Point Presentation, T-shirts and DVD. The actually hunting is free and public is welcome. Each person is on there own to cover any permits required or day passes for the forest that we will be hunting in.
