Step 2: tips on where to look
in my 3 years of hunting for dry land fish i've learned some things form experience 1st dry land fish like to grow near mayapple(every morel i've ever found was within 15ft of mayapple). 2nd dry land fish don't like poor, dry, or rocky soil(they like moist good soil). 3rd they also like to grow close to rotting wood or decaying wood(like dead tree stumps, decaying branches, etc).
so those are the things i've learned from hunting them.
