The right burns are very hard to locate. Yet it’s imperative to know where to go before you head out on a burn morel hunt. Each year Trent spends many hours curating online burn maps for morel hunters in 11 Western states, sorting through fire data and removing many poor choices and also fires in areas that are inaccessible (or unlawful) for picking. 2020 saw an unprecedented number of fires, it will be an incredible job this year.
The maps show fires and their perimeters using a Google Map rendering engine. This includes a satellite basemap and a hybrid terrain basemap (topo + roads).
We also offer USFS and USGS overlays on most maps. We use the USFS especially for more accurate road information than Google.
Additionally, we have chosen 10-20 top picks in most states and provide details and hunting tips for each of these burns.
Our burn morels e-book is included with the maps and will teach you how to use the curated maps to locate ideal morel burn sites. We’ll also give you an idea of how we do it using Google maps and US Department of Interior burn data. The ebook provides an overview of elevation, forest types, accessibility, necessary permits, lands where you can and cannot hunt, natural indicators, portable technology and much more.
This is a digital product!
It's somewhat tricky for us to add people to the system in advance, here's how it will work:
1. When you purchase this gift certificate, you will get emailed a link to the PDF of the certificate that you can either print or forward by email to your giftee. The burn morels e-book will be included in the gift certificate PDF.
2. IMPORTANT: We will need the name and email of the gift recipient, this must be filled out in the shopping cart notes section at the time of purchase (if you forget, we will contact you).
3. When the system is ready (approximately March 31, 2021), we will add the gift recipients and provide them with access to the system. They will get an email with instructions to access the maps at this time.
Your deliverable will be a PDF which includes the certificate and burn morel ebook that you then email to your burn morel hunter. The same instructions will be given to them in this document.
