Look early and often KC RM Hunter, people I know including myself are walking up to 2 week, too old hens, in SW and Central Ohio, tricked by an early cool spell and horrid droughtlike conditions. Fortunately it rained today and is going to cool off and none of my "local" trees have fruited yet, checked them all twice or more over the past 2 weeks. Vacation was great for looking at henless oaks but did document one on ash with Julie, check a couple pages back on Ohio message board for video. Turned Latt on to his first lobster find labor day in the middle of this mess, 75% were fresh. :roll:

Well after the incredible success for me with chanterelle hunting early this Summer, the late Summer has been the opposite! There has been no rain for a couple weeks now and the fungus is non-existent! KC, I hope those forecasts are correct for next week though! The last shrooms I was finding were ringless honeys, and a lot of them at that! Usually thre regular honeys are right behind them, but not this year! Now it's cooling down and Fall is almost upon us, so all we need is some RAIN and we're in business~ Corals, bluets, honeys, hens and chicks - GET READY!!

I have found a few polypores as of late, reishi, chickens , and some black staining maitake wanabee's.
Oh and Inonotus dryadeus (yummy)

On a "normal year" ...mid October would be prime time for several choice edibles in my area. And all signs point to a normal fall.
Fingers crossed of course !!
