Never hunted anything but morels but am planning on trying for some summer/fall mushrooms this year. Anybody from the southern part of the state want to give a good date to start looking...from what I have read so far it is still a couple of weeks away...

p.s. Did you notice any little cinnabars by your patches of chanterelles? I am wondering if anyone else is seeing them.

Jack can you ID this for me. It doesnt look like the other chickens I found but was growing out of the ground about 3ft from an oak. It doesn't stain so is it just a pale cinncinatus...it is very thin not thick like the others i found...
