Foragers must attend an all-day class and score 80 percent or higher on the test. So if you have missed 20% of the questions that concerns me since you should be 100% correct to be sure you are selling the correct species. I don't need a test since I've been eating all I have sold for the last 30 years and have been eating all kinds of wild mushrooms for 55 years. If I wasn't picking the right ones why am I still living. I should be Grandfathered in. If a person gets 20% wrong answers then that person has a chance of picking the wrong ones. There lies the problem with the test for the license.

There are only 50 questions on the test so you can't get many wrong in order to fail. I think the bar should be set a little higher but still leave in a little leniency for stupid mistakes such as misunderstanding a question.

The exam was very easy and 3 of us got all of the questions right including the bonus questions. Most everyone passed the test on April 15th.

Not everyone there was interested in selling mushrooms. We had a park ranger who wanted to be educated on wild edibles to share the knowledge with her guests.
