BUCKHANNON — Warm, rainy days have made Morel mushroom hunters happy of late and none may be happier than 5-year-old Jasi Butler who discovered some very large specimens with her family.

The find happened Saturday as they were turkey hunting with a friend.

“We were coming off a mountain to go to another one and Jasi’s mom (Chrissy Lemasters) spotted what we thought were a couple big ones from the trail,” Jasi’s dad, Shon Butler, said.
