    It's a shame! The mods do the best they can. The owner needs to set up a better system period! I think the owner just doesn't care. It's a great system we do all the work and they profit and don't listen to feedback. Was once a great site, sad to say not so anymore! Happy Hunting!

    I can't believe how difficult it seems to be. I've never seen a site hacked like this before.

    That said, we had none of the luck that ajack had over the weekend. We went just a little further north of where he had his lucky spots and we had just about nothing in the chant department. Did find maybe 1/2 a pound of black trumpets that were still useable. A few black velvet boletes (I think...haven't keyed them yet). Plenty of non-edibles on our drive and hike, but the woods were too wet and muddy for anything else.

    All the Chants I've found so far have been on well draining ridges around oaks with rocky soil and grasses.

    Nice. From the regions you described, I had some vague idea of places you could be, but I don't have the time to get to them, I don't think. Even the upland areas with well-draining soil and a little rock were swampy yesterday. 2" of rain will do that :p

    "All the Chants I've found so far have been on well draining ridges around oaks with rocky soil and grasses."

    What kind are you finding? I've been picking lots of smooth chants in an environment you describe. I'm picking far fewer golden chants elsewhere.

    redfred, yes it is a canon powershot a710 that I had for years. It had quit on me earlier in the spring, so I picked up a newer canon on ebay and as soon as I received it I rapped my old one on my desk and It started working again. So I will use it till it stops again.

    Sometimes just the threat of the 20 oz. repair tool is enough to slap most electronic devices into submission..... but a wrap on the table will tell them who is boss......good luck....

    That's exactly the situation I found my first ever Chants in the other day. All within 10 ft of the base of a large red oak. I went in there because I had found boletes there in years past. Unfortunately, I found the Chants too late, they were dried up and over the hill. We had a little rain this afternoon. Do you think that might get more to pop? There weren't that many, only 9 or 10 shrooms. Would have made a nice small skillet full.
