Ya, they both grow so fast. I'm surprised those oysters look so aged for one night of growth. You sure they were't there the day before? Either way, if they grew in a night, they shouldn't be buggy!
Yes it was like 90 degrees that day, and they were a bit on the dry side, but almost totally bug free!! I did cut and dry a bunch.

Yes trumpets........ Illusive to me as well. I can find chanterelles by the bucket full, but no trumpets. I have read everything that has been stated on this chat about them is true. I have the right soil and all the oaks i can handle, but they rarely grow with moss. I don't see much moss unless im in willow/ash/aspin territory. The chants are just starting to run in west central Minnesota.

The only thing I've found that actually works is to stay out the woods lol. Bug spray kinda works but haven't found much else other than that and staying out of there and finding a different spot with less buggs
Lol i hate say it, but bringing a dog helps! I have my lab trained to stay when i stop moving fast and forage. He won't move until im done and call him. I have tried to put deet on his ears but he rolls around in the grass until it's off. Unfortunately my mushroom hunting companion is bait.

Im seeing different development in the chants from woods to woods, all within 10 miles of my house. Some flushes are just getting started, while others are getting past prime. The good thing is theres hardly any buggy ones!
