    Is anybody expecting an early season this year with the rain and cool temps?

    I was wondering the same thing, but didn't it get too hot again?

    Ya, I'm pretty sure I completely jinxed it. We've had nothing but cool weather all year until I went and said something about an early maitake season!

    Apparently people in northern states are starting to find hens... hopefully with this cool off we'll start seeing some action next week.

    I'm ready for some hens! They are my favorite. Last year was a total bust for my trees and the woods I hunted. I just don't understand how NONE of the trees I marked produced. No stumps or dried up old ones.

    Yup -- I'm out in Wentzville as well. Lots of chantrelles and oysters, but still no hens :( I haven't found any chickens yet either. I'm heading up a little further north in Illinois this weekend, hopefully hens have started up there. We'll see....

Still no hens though :-( went out the next day at a state park down there and cleaned up ob chants.......theyre still commn up its great. My best year for the chanterelle !!!!!!!
