    Hey guys,
    I checked some prime chicken spots in Northeast Wisconsin, but nothing yet. Found thousands of oysters, but all buggy, and most too high up the trees. They were growing on poplar, so I presume they are the Pleurotus populinus variety. Anyway, been getting tons of rain (where was the rain the last 10 days of morel season?) so I will be checking chicken spots periodically, and if we we don't go into another drought, the chanterelles will be arriving slightly ahead of schedule, and in droves, I predict. Old Elm, I'm jealous of your chicken, lol.

    This big O'le Gal already laid her egg's which is early too. She & I go way,way back,and I'm always happy to see she made it another year. Did Ya know the Males almost NEVER leave the water.

    Nice Snapper! when i was a kid we had an apple orchard next to a stream. We would toss the apples in the water and the snappers would come up and eat them. How long do they live?

    I think you got her aged a little young,OldElm. If that is an alligator snapper, and it looks like it is, a snapper that size goes around 60+ years. Nice lookin gal. And I am not saying "old gal" either. How many pounds are you holding onto there? We have the smaller common snappers in our farm pond here in Wisconsin.

    Oh man Old Elm, you lucky dog! I can't find any chicken yet, and I've checked some prime oak forest. I will probably find chanterelles before I find a chicken, lol. Nice score!

    " Chelios " I'm thinkin yer up north of us a ways. We're west/central. Chickens aren't our favorities, but a few feeds are always good until the Chant's ,Hedgehogs, ect start showing up. We always do an annual two week camping trip up to Cornicopia the last two weeks of August for Chants & fresh lake trout! Can't beat that combo over an open fire.

    ' " Buckthornman" Since we al have to surrender and admit you are the undisputed king of " Minnesota's Black Morels", I was wondering if you do very well on the Black Trumpits ? They seem to elude me every year,but that maybe cause I get pretty focused ( Tunnel vision) on just a few favorites. Anyhow all the best to you. SHROOMTROOPER and I will be hitiing the CHANTS & HedgeHogs in a couple weeks.......

    Hey Old Elm,
    I'm over by Appleton. If you're west central, then we're probably at about the same latitude, however, I got Lake Winnebago, Lake Michigan, and Green Bay making for interesting weather. I did finally find a nice Cincinnatus yesterday. Also, have a place for chanterelles that is kind of a micro climate, and with all the rain we are getting, it may be a great season. Last year at one of my chant spots, I found like 15 mushrooms. It was very dry at the entire spot. Got some late rain, but too late. The year before, thousands. Literally, seas of yellow. I'm hoping for that kind of year, lol. Honestly, I would be happy with just a good season, but minus the fungus gnats. Eh, have a good day, gotta go work.
