Well, had to get out and look at my mushroom spots and look for new ones. I noticed you can actually see some green popping up in spots, and that moss amazes me its still green. I hope our lack of snow does not hurt the season. I have saw some old Hen of woods carcasses around some oaks I have never noticed before, early winter I guess. Good luck to all.

I think we will see a early spring, and since last year was so late, and maybe this year might be early, we could possibly see a difference of a 3 week start.

Antsy here too! I'm finding tons of old chicken of the woods and making lots of mental notes. Keeping an eye out for scarlet cups too. It's probably way early but last year was the first year I really took note of them and it was such a late spring I'm starting to watch early. Yes, brandones, I'm dancing for rain. Doin' my part :wink:

shroomtrooper, chicken. It's everywhere out there. Walking that trail in the early spring before everything leafs out it is shocking to see how much bright yellow/orange fungi you miss just 10' in front of your face, lol. Btw, I did find scarlet cups yesterday. Wow, exciting!

shroomtrooper, I guess I've never found old hotw to my knowledge. Then again, I just started hunting it in earnest last couple years. I'll keep my eyes open. I'd say it's embarrassing how much chicken gets missed out there just off the trail but it's in some backwaters of the St. Croix river and boy are the mosquitoes healthy back there! lol

I think I'm maybe not being clear at all in my posts, lol! I was replying to you saying you'd seen some hen of the woods "carcasses". I was saying I've been seeing a lot of chicken from last year. You get chicken in the spring? Lucky duck! We start seeing it around late June/early July here. Where are you in MN??

Hang tight brenson, I think you're gonna have a banner year up there when they get around to popping. I'm waiting for Iowa to turn on; we've got a few reports of early stragglers. There's still time to get your stick ready. Mine's ready. I'll be hitting the woods on Friday morning.

Went out today and checked the honey holes...nothing yet. However, another spot yielded 9 good sized ones! Yes, the season has begun!
