Been out several times and still no luck in any spots i know in lbl.
The black ones appear to be urnula craterium 'devils urn' mushroom. The other i believe to be a hexagonal pored polypore
Well, I found three, and a stinky stink horn! Maybe with temps in the 80's coming up I'll find more!
Dang, It wont let me post the pics!
The pored mushrooms are called Lentinus brumalis - they aren't Hexgonal Pored Polypores, as those have orange caps and no stems.
Picked another 31 today. 19 in Jefferson and a dozen in Hart. All very fresh except for 1. Found several that had popped since Monday. A good
Rain after the 3 warm days should really make it good hunting for everyone. 4 of the 5 that I left to grow last Sunday grew very little. Left them again to grow
Hello fellow fungi fans - I'm new to this forum. PNW person, here in KY until the apocalypse ends. I hunt/research all fungi, but I have recently re-developed an obsession for your Eastern morels (I have hunted out west most of my life, and hunted here with family as a kid). I have one private spot that fits all the habitat criteria, but after searching 3 times/week on average, I've come home empty handed each time (other than some jellies and inkies). I have also frequented a few parks, but those are hit or miss with everyone having free time to hunt. Today's search was extra desperate and extra depressing - I can find TINY field caps the size of a pin, but not the morels?! Anyone having any luck? Folks in my mushroom Facebook group have been finding tons in SoKY (happy for them but it really just fuels my obsession more).
Same here - I keep getting discouraged because of the seemingly perfect conditions, lack of ANY fungi in spots, and the massive hauls that other people seem to be having in SoKY.
Hexi pored mushroom*
I believe you are correct!
is the land between the lakes a pocket of ground that comes in later than most every thing around it ??
you will find yourself surrounded by Morels Soon enough KEEP HUNTING
Are you finding blacks???? Bc ive been searching my hot spots that produce every year in southern Jefferson county line and no signs of anything not even may apples poking up yet. Ive never found any blacks ever so thats y i ask.
So I am new to the morel hunting! I scoured a little nothing serious last year, this year I’ve been 2 times really looking hard not even sure if I have any on my farm or if I am even really looking in the right areas to be honest any tips or pointers??
So encouraging, thank you Wade! Morels have taken over my dreams, literally!
So, whats the verdict on edibility?
Thanks for the ID!! Are they edible? Poisonous? Medicinal?
Sources say it's too tough to eat, and no known medicinal properties. Urnula craterium has been noted to be "not horrible" but really another toughie with no known medicinal properties. Neither are lethal/severely poisonous, but rather quotes as being mediocre/hard to swallow. We should be having some wonderful edibles popping up soon, like oysters/dryads saddle/half free morels/etc.
Found 27 today it’s gonna be a great year
Left the white to grow
