    Ooohhhh tundraking, your pictures are chanterelle porn to me! I love chanterelles, and I’ll eat them every day if I can. They’re the first wild mushroom I ever learned how to pick.

    When I was a little girl, I’d count down the days until my birthday, because that was the time for picking chanterelles and wild blueberries with my Dad.

    This year, my 80-yr-old Dad is flying over from Germany for my birthday, we’re going to pick pfifferlinge and then heading to Montana for sapphires. LOL

    Saw some chanterelles out on a bike ride in Minnetonka couple days ago..... went to a park in St Paul where I have always found black trumpets, but they were super tiny, which was odd..... they are usually huge this time of July.‍♀️

    Ya, I've been trying to make this my year to find some good trumpet spots, and I'm positive I've found some really nice areas, but haven't found any yet... Unfortunately, I have to walk through a completely deer fly-infested area for 15-20 minutes before I get to that area... I need to find a good rider and horse spray or something.

    Hey everyone, Im new to the forum and have been shroom hunting for 4 years so far. Ive had excellent luck with morels this year but am very inexperienced when it comes to boletes and chanterelles, any tips would be appreciated!

    I would just get out by some oaks and hardwoods and look around, you'll eventually find something, chanterelles are easy to identify, boletes can be very tricky but there are some easy ones to identify, old man of woods, Kings. Don't eat anything you aren't 100% sure, and even then just try a piece, just because I can eat a mushroom doesn't mean you can.

    Thanks, Ive eaten plenty of mushrooms to know i dont have any adverse reactions to most. At least to morels, chanterellee, boletes and some of the common polypores (Chicken, hen and oyster). Appreciate the response.

    Do we have a lot of false chanterelles around here? I found a ton of what I thought were chants today, but now that I'm double checking I'm not completely sure.

    Here is a sampling of the find. Someone got to the spot a day or two ago so most were pretty young and hadn't developed the unique edges. After washing them I think they're Chants - the ridges were definitely firmer than one of the mushrooms in the find which might have actually been a false one. I know they can't kill you, but I still don't have plans on eating them unless I'm completely sure :confused: image2.jpeg

    Get yourself a good Field guide, and don't pick anything with gills.
