Wow! They must be at least a few weeks early.

Morel season is upon us, at least just South of the blue line. Good luck and enjoy the hunt!

That is a beauty! Went looking for them on Saturday. Didn't find the hens, but I ran into a nice batch of fresh sulfurs. I was thrilled. 2016 shrooming hasn't been very productive for me.

I found a couple nice king boletes yesterday. The hens continue to elude me.

Spectacular streamer! Someone got one of my hens and not sure if another fruited this year so I think I'm going hen-less this year. Fungi are finally starting to show themselves as of late.

This came from my mother-in-law's yard:


These came from dead beech logs:


My Adirondack fishing trips have yielded oysters in quantity along with some small lion's mane. I saw some honeys coming up sunday in a hardwood forest.

Mycophobia is a rational fear for the uneducated. For those who choose to learn the fear is irrational.

oysters and late oysters are bountiful this fall. During that little rainstorm two weeks ago, we managed to pick plenty while we were supposed to be deer hunting. Four of us managed to pick enough that, cleaned and sliced, filled 15 one gallon ziplocks. Some oysters were the size of dinner plates.

Sliced and sauteed oyster mushrooms are also a camp staple after a day in the woods hunting.

I also found a nice bunch of oysters a few days ago. They were fresh and bug free.

Some oysters from deep in the backcountry.

These were delish whipped up with chicken & biscuits. I think I have about 10 quart bags in the freezer, which should see me through the winter

Fresh picked Morels and Fiddleheads over Adirondack venison backstraps. Died and went to heaven!

Geo,
Morels already?! Those are the one shroom I can't seem to connect with other than the weird random find here and there. Well, that and black trumpets but I'm happy with the amount of chants I get so not such a big deal. Congrats!

Creekwater, They are definitely out around "the place of the nettles".
I have a hard time locating Black Trumpets also.

I'm not a forager but am getting interested. Anyone know what this one is? Spotted it up north earlier this week while turkey hunting. My foot is next to the stump for a size comparison.
