Let's start with this Ohio thread for the great year opening up to us!
I like doing some scouting in the winter; good visibility and some old 'shrooms like Hen of the Woods or Maitake, or Lions Mane still hanging on --though inedible -- telling me where to look this next fall.
It becomes a cumulative experience making you better and more productive with each year's passing.
It won’t be long I’ll be out there looking for antler sheds and scouting good luck shrooming this is my new hood emblem
Yes.. likewise Robinbluebird , Chewy and Me love a few good winter days in the woods ..finding things
I'm from Northeast Ohio, but I'll be in the Athens area April 10-12. How possible do you think it might be to find some morels around that time?
That's right at my normal date of first find for central OH, so. . . spend some time in the woods when you're in the Athens area, mid April.
Awesome! I appreciate the info. Last year was my first time hunting for mushrooms and I had a blast. I'm really looking forward to getting back out there.
Last year I got over to Athens County, OH once, on the 27th of April (below pic) and many of the Morels we got were 12 to 15 days old. SO . . . you have good reason to be excited about your chances.
Don't forget to enjoy the splendor of Springtime afterwards too!
@Kokomorel Hey Kokomorel . . . what's the best way to affix my Chanterelle-hunt, hood-ornament from last year to the hood of my mushroommobile?
Use some shroomglue nice rack you pick up . I picked up this half rack last spring
Now that's the way to end a day of hunting! Good luck this season sb!
With an antler on only one side of the hood your car might do circles! lol. Good Luck to you too this season Kokomorel!
So Sb, does your mushroommobile run on rinse water??? I like Kokomorel suggestion of shroomglue and plan to look for some at my local hardware store.. I was thinking crazy glue, seems better suited for such a project.... ps..is that a redbud I see blooming in that photo?? A good sign for morel hunting...
redfred - yep, redbud, just starting to open. you got it.
It made me feel good again, just looking at that Athens County, OH, Morel Hunt Pic from last spring.
While I'm at it, redfred . . . are you ready to rob some banks again this year? . . . we can't have a redo of "Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid" because I've already been to Bolivia. . . . and I'm too old to die young! Ha! ha! ha! Ahhhh!
Wha-da-ya suggest? . . . Wait . . . . that's right . . . there are Morel Mushrooms in Bolivia!
Hey sb, if you wanna get a laugh, look at the blacktail skull I found last year. (I better get there before the squirrels & rats huh?!) lol
That was a bunch of calcium starved critters chewing there!
Oddly enough, I have never found a shed antler. And I spend plenty of time out there. I have found a pretty complete skull with both small antlers attached. Here's a neat little twist in Ohio game law, or at least used to be. If you find one of these, you need to "check it in" with the DOW, in order to "reduce it to possession"! I didn't realize that until years later, so I never bothered. I guess I'm an outlaw!
Don't get me started on 'weird game' laws! We're in CA. where they banned the use of lead ammo state wide, even for varmints! You can't pick up a pine cone or a branch without a paid for permit. That makes pretty much everyone out here an outlaw!
and to Everyone
