Oneida County; I knew it was too soon but I had to check anyway. Plenty of moisture but not enough ground heat. The only Chants I found were buttons. They were on the fringe of a hardwood forest with an open field on its South facing flank. Meguesses that the sun drenched field warms up more then the canopy covered forest enough to push up the Chant buttons. They get both the warm ground temps and the indirect sunshine which they crave. The future looks bright! Enjoy the hunt!
sorry about the pics,or lack thereof.daughter tried to post those.she thinks i need a new computer.i thought four years of college was on my side but she can text with her toes!
i'll try myself again,but techno challenged.like to keep things simple.i still have phone conversations!

I hunted today for a short while along the mass/ny/vt border. I found some promising areas, and a giant, rotten porcini. I did move through areas with mixed beech and hemlock, but found only a few gilled species.
Cincinnati here. The patch in my front yard started poppin around the 16th. I got a few handfuls, and there were lots more coming up... That is until my neighbor decided to be neighborly and mowed my grass on the lowest setting. All of the remaining chanties were obliterated. I'm hoping this rain coaxes some more out. Damn friendly neighbors!

Depending on your age you may not know how to copy and paste things.........your mouse has two buttons right and left ...to copy you must highlight it ...put little arrow in front of what you want to copy click the left button and hold down while dragging arrow over what you want to copy and let go...should be covered with blue...now put the arrow on the blue part and click right bottom a list should appear click on copy.....now the thing you want to copy is stored in your mouse ........then go to where you want to put it and right click .....list appears again left click on paste ....Tada hope this helps someone
I hunted some public land today and found a bunch of chanterelle buttons and small porcini. I also found some tiny flame chanterelles (craterallus species) growing in moss. Thanks for the tips guys. Hemlock is my new friend!

Lovely day! Found a couple handfuls of Chants. Woods was wet, saw various species of inedible and insipid mushrooms. Was able to check out progression of different plant species. The woods have a message to reveal if we can only slow down enough to listen. Enjoy the hunt, Geo
