Barnacle they look like hens to me.. Looks like the rain might have did them in. Remember that spot they will show up in years to come. Happy Hunting!!
If you rearrange Cassius it 1 letter off of my last name. Today's starting out great I parked my car to go for a quick hunt and as I was grabbing my gear I turned around and saw my first ever chickens! 5 feet from the car! Very tender and clean, I love first finds! I did see a chicken a few years ago but had no idea what is was and thought it was something to avoid.Barancle Could this be a young hen?
Not a Hen. I see a blueish color so I believe it to be Tyromyces caesius / Polyporus caesius. Might be able to use it as a dye for clothing like tee shirts.
Yep stumps are good also.. But for me the still standing STRESSED tree's are the big producers. Sometimes it's hard to see the stress most times it's heart rot, but you'll see signs of stress in the canopy of the tree. The amount of light that makes it to the forest floor is a key also. If your in the middle of the forest and have an open canopy it's an edge. Trust me I've grew hens for years and light exposure is very important. Happy Hunting!!
