    Unite! Anyone interested in doing a group hunt, sharing war stories, cracking mushroom jokes, perhaps teaching those new to the sport (like myself) a thing or two?

    I'm new to hunting in Maryland, but grew up going with my mom and sister. Do you know of any good areas around Baltimore?

    Hey Eve, there are a ton of state parks around the state that can be fairly productive, depending on your quarry. Recently however, prime target species – hen/chicken of the woods, lions mane, porcini – have been awfully tough to come by, with minimal finds since mid Sept. The hens I am finding now are several weeks past their prime, but I am optimistic a second round will pop with the recent rain and upcoming forecasts. I would recommend targeting forests with large, mature white oak trees in stream/creek areas that benefit from the higher natural moisture. I’ll be going out this weekend and will report back with any notable finds. Good luck out there!
