    I have never heard of such a thing! Can you explain where you got such an idea?

    I agree with dhunter. I don’t think it will negatively affect morels when leaving a stump behind seeing how unpicked morels seem to naturally deteriorate from mold and fungus. I would think uprooting would negatively affect the mycelium much more than cutting.

    I have always left stumps behind in my whole mushroom hunting career and i will never stop doing that unless you can show me a better way. Until then leave it all behind.

    Same reason we carry mesh bags. Explain your reasoning man.

    I was taught years ago to leave a stump..and use a mesh bag..I understand the mesh bag and letting the spores fall as you walk...BUT I've never really understood the science behind the stump and how it effects the mycelium:( if someone can shed some light on this it would be much appreciated ;)

    Upper Miami Co. in our woods. Everything was just breaking ground, lots of them 0422191011.jpg 0422191018.jpg 0422191102.jpg 0422191102a.jpg . Decided to mark them, back out, and give them a few days. Looks real promising, if we have the patience to wait. Tomorrow is our spot in Montgomery Co. Update then.

    From what I understand the mycelium is attached to the mushroom like an apple to an apple tree. The more dirt that you pull up when picking your shroom the more mycelium will be destroyed. Haven’t heard a study on the full negative affects of this but will continue to cut mine until I hear otherwise. Hope this helps

    Looks like mica caps. Often have fine "mica" like granules on the caps. They are, in fact in the same family as other inky caps.

    Any finds in NW Ohio yet? I've been it several times with no luck at all yet.

    I'm in the Toledo area. None for me either. I figure the grays will be up later this week. Will be going out tomorrow to see if there are any "early birds."

    Late to Party but Agree with @shroomsearcher & @Photochef. LBMs, if had to "GUESS" on id from provided photo, refer to Coprinellus Micaceus.

    Today's haul from south central OH, right around 6 lbs., blacks are all but peaked out, still might find some in decent shape closer to bottoms, found a decent amount of halfrees and hopefully with a little rain and sunshine there will be one last good flush for them along with the season ending tulips. Getting grown up a little in most of my spots, I think next week will be it for me.
