๐Ÿค  This Will Be My 57th Season of Hunting the Same Areas that My Dad first Carried Me into..when I was only 2 yrs old in 1965
I'm Not Studied up on all the New Sience that is Available in Our Age of Online..
I Just "Love the Hunt" and I Still Find Morels Almost every time I go, sometimes a few Sometimes a lot.. it is very Exciting to find a bunch like 50, 100 or 300..
But I believe we will all agree ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ๐Ÿ’ฏ
It's the "Love of the Hunt" and just being in the woods is Always Our Heart โค
๐Ÿค  I hope this year as we all find Our way on down the trail together on Here..
That we will make time to take some Pictures of Cool, interesting things we see along the Way,
Maybe like a beautiful sunrise as you begin your hunt in the morning.. then pics of Morels Growing...
and when you find yourself looking face to face with a perfect Example for a ๐ŸŒณ Tree Identification ๐ŸŒณ please take some pictures and share them with All of us...
๐ŸŒฒ and just as well if you find a Tree you are Not Sure of ..share some good pics of it and we can All help to identify what it is.๐ŸŒฒ
๐Ÿ„ Also when Our Morels are done, STAY IN THE WOODS..We will Continue finding Many Other types of Edible Fungi ๐Ÿ„ all Summer and Fall into Winter ....
Ok โค Thank You Everyone ๐Ÿ˜Š
Let's get on down thru the Woods together and check in here often as You Can..
See ya soon
from Wade ๐Ÿค 
Love the Hunt

I'm soooo ready. I hope gas stays below 4.00 this year. End of the season last year I paid 5.25 on my trip home from the Yoop.

I missed Indiana last year and don't want to make that mistake again.

Elm Girl, I hope you come up again so we can hunt the U.P. together. I think we have a bunch of decent sites to hit now. We just have to get the timing down for the whites. We were definently early last year. But at least we got a bunch of blacks. Hopefully Wade can join us.

Wade messaged me to post today so I did lol
Been pretty busy with life lately. Hadnโ€™t did much foraging yet. I Did get out and harvest some meat though. Wonโ€™t be able to drive too far north to search for morels but I see a trip to central Mississippi on the horizon. May the mushroom gods be with each and everyone of you fungible folks

I Will Be up and Further Up and All the way UP
So... I guess that's a Y'UP ... I'm in...
But I'm Still Very Scared of Bears..
S S S So.... I will be Pack,n and Loaded for ELEPHANT.. and if I do have to Kill a Bear, because I really don't want to..
But if I do have to Kill a Bear... I'm gonna want to Skin it Out, Ready for Taxidermist...
CAN I DO ALL THAT.... or do I have to outrun the Game Wardens

I'm wondering how many of us just have dried mushrooms sitting around the house.
I do and just a few days ago I was wondering about what I might do with them. I think I'm going to get out my notes from past Morel cook-ups to see what is inspiring. (?) I probably have enough for just 1 (ONE) good cook-up.

Very Good Photography..I don't know Exactly what Fungi those are
The cluster of white ones is oysters.
The weird pink/purple one is reishi
The big one in my hand is a turnip footed amanita
The white one inside the tree hollow is lions mane
The dark one with orange bottom is chaga

The Amanita is not edible but all others are. Lions mane is a choice edible. Reishi and chaga are both medicinal.

Iโ€™m no expert, these are just the few that I can positively identify. Trying to figure out what youโ€™ve found is all part of the fun.
