While I was out hunting today and I found a lions mane, but it was already turning brown. I wish I could find a fresh one so I could try it. From what I heard they taste like seafood.

True. But sometimes the shrooms are there to simply absorb the wonderful flavors of what they are being cooked with! If you don't want to use your trumpets, go to the store and buy some of those tasteless white things they sell. Perfect for the application! Every dish can be improved by including shrooms.

I found quite a few oyster mushrooms today. They were a little old but some were still okay. There were a lot of them too high in the tree for me to get, as I wasn't hunting mushrooms so I was unprepared. Didn't even have my camera with me.

I saw Fantastic Fungi in Allentown Friday evening. Go see it if you have a chance. You'll have to Google it for more info; the board won't allow me to post a link.

I took the flintlock for a walk today, found a nice 7 point that wasn't recovered. Also found a couple pounds of oysters, they are prime not a bug on them. View attachment 23964
Wow! Those look phenomenal! With the mild temps that have been around lately, I guess it's possible! One year I hunted late muzzleloader with my BIL at his camp in SE OH. It was quite warm and damp. Sitting on a hillside I spotted a tree just festooned in brilliant white down below me. After I decided that deer hunting was a bust, I tried to get to them. But the slope was too steep and wet, with crumbly rock, and I figured I'd break my ankles, legs, or something else going after them.

And it was late in the day, and the rain had picked up. I was losing light, and had to get back across a rising creek for about a mile hike home. If I couldn't get across, I had about an 8 mile hike home! It was an easy decision to make!
