Let's start with this Ohio thread for the great year opening up to us!
Yes.. likewise Robinbluebird , Chewy and Me love a few good winter days in the woods ..finding thingsI 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.
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.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.
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
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!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!
