True! I live in NE Ohio, very close to the PA border. On our page there are guys way down near the Ohio River saying it's still early, folks in the middle of the state raking them in, and some in the northern parts starting to find good numbers! This is something I've never encountered.Definitely an odd season in terms of overall quantities, the when, and the where. Attached is an image demonstrating one of my favorite passtimes other than actually finding new spots and picking them.
You said it! Hunters call those LBM's, or, Little Brown Mushrooms! There are literally thousands of species, and it's hard to get a definite ID on any one of them. Best leave them alone. Some are poisonous, some are psychoactive. Serious hunters don't bother with them!what are all of those little brown shrooms on the ground on the bottom pic? I found a ton of those today.
That doesn't mean you shouldn't go back and have another look after a while. I looked under a dead elm and found the ground carpeted with LBM's! 10 days to 2 weeks later, I went back and found that the LBM's had all died back, and there was nice flush of morels there!
