  • About

    The Williams Family has been picking morels in Northern Michigan since the 1890s and Anthony's pickin' advice has been proven to be enlightening for everyone from novice to the seasoned pro.

    After winning the National Morel Hunting Championship five years in a row, Anthony Williams retired from competitive picking to become the "Expert in Residence" for the National Morel Festival. Over the past twenty years he has continued to share his "Picking with the Champ" seminar at the festival and Michigan libraries. This seminar is filled with stories from his 70 years of picking, tips on where and how to pick including the finer points on finding the elusive morel. Fun will be had by all and hopefully you will walk away filled with hope and promise in your future morel hunting capabilities.
