Hey all, just wondering if any of you could help me get started with chanterelles. I have been foraging for wild edibles for almost 20 years now, i have always wanted to look for them but have no idea where to start. i know the id, just need some direction on likely spots. Do they relate to certain trees? soil types? sun/shade? any and all info is welcome. I am in no way looking for spots as this to me is what is truly enjoyable about shrooming. I have plenty of spots to look in central ohio. I would be more than willing to take an experienced hunter out who could show me the ropes on these. Again any and all help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

good read Pedro, thank you. I guess I am looking for more suggestions on habitat than id. I feel fairly confident I can id them just need to know where to look. From what i have read, it says hemlock, birch and oak trees. But most of these articles are referencing the northwest. I am hoping to get some more insight on habitat in our area, as i don't have many stands of hemlock or birch around here. tho i do have some very large oak stands. Just kind of wanted to pick the brains of some seasoned Ohio chantrelle hunters

go to the large stands of oaks. That is going to be the main tree for the majority of ohio. You will also find hedgehogs/sweettooth, chickens,hens,and black trumpets around the oaks so learn what they look like and how to identify them.

well there are quite a few edibles available during the summer but those are the ones I like. You could keep a eye out for old man of the woods...they are edible but i don't think of them as choice at all. If you find the old man there are usually some chants or trumpets in the vicinity.

I'm in NE In. and find most of my chants around red oak which looks a lot different than white. Also, last year I found a woods with nearly all shagbark hickory that produced really well. Only found a few close to each tree but they were all big ones. Another delicious shroom that I find near the chants is the green quilted russala. Very firm with almost a sweet taste. Only ever find a few at a time, bummer.
