    Hi there- I’m a new poster but we have found chicken of the woods up in north LA near Newellton. We’ve found lots of oysters up there too...and chanterelles and wood ear. My husband found some oysters on a dead tree in my brother’s yard near Jackson La last week. The oysters are out right now for sure.

    When it starts warming up/getting rainy you can find chanterelles around city park or around the swamps (like honey island)

    When it warms up (and about 3-4 days after a good rain) go to Honey Island reserve and walk around the woods. My friends and I usually come back with 3+ lbs.

    Def bring a machete and watch out for snakes!

    I m not far from the kissatche. And I don’t have anybody to hunt with anymore please feel free to message me I’m a horticulturist that’s trying to farm organic vegetables LOL I’m getting better but this mycology thing is so much more fun. Chanterelles grow wild all over my property they seem to love the Cow Oaks more so than other white oaks.

    Howdy Phil.
    I’d have to say an obsession lol

    I mostly hangout at wildmushroomhunting.org

    Brand new to this site. Just signed up. Also new to hunting. I've been studying a lot, but find very little information. I live in a house in a second growth woodland hiding in New Orleans. I find quite a lot of oysters in winter but can't even get good advice on what else is out there, especially in "non-winter seasons" (i. e. the other 360 days a year). I understand that I should be able to find chanterelles, but don't know where to hunt. All help accepted with gratitude and even some shroom sharing.

    The southern half of Louisiana may be tough for morels but it should be great for chanterelles in the summer. Stay away from marshy/swampy ground for morels and look for the high sandy spots in the swamps and marshes for chanterelles. I live on the eastern side of Texas and we have a lot of bottom areas where I live.

    B50AF0F0-6CF5-450B-BDE4-A84332A73D7A.jpeg North Louisiana shroomer here! I’m in Webster Parish, about 30 miles from the Arkansas border. We moved out to my husband’s family farm about 3 years ago and I’ve been learning about the available wild edibles, especially mushrooms. I’ve gotten confident enough to eat chanterelles and oysters, but so far that’s it. However, I found some honeys and black trumpets a couple months ago and I’m going to give them a try next time. Really, really want to find some morels!

    I found mine in a forest with dappled shade and lots of beech trees with a few oaks. One of the beech trees had lots of oysters and while I was cutting off a few, I happened to notice the black trumpets a few feet away. They’re a little hard to see amongst all the leaves, but once I found one, I started seeing bunches of them.
