    Roldawg31 I have always loved the outdoors and anywhere I move I try to find something new that interests me in the area. In Oregon I learned to dig razor clams and fish for dungeness crab. I love to fish and cook so I figured picking mushrooms would be a great fit for me. I never learned the chantrelles while in Oregon so I wanted to take advantage of the Morels.

    I will let you know if I get out to the Manhattan area. When would be a good weekend and maybe I will plan a trip.

    Cheers!

    Hey Zach, welcome to KS. I work in Olathe and live in Osawatomie. I have a few places around Hillsdale lake that are generally good for a decent batch, but it's well hunted land :) Also have a few prospect areas that I haven't tried yet. If you're up for it we could check them out.

    Went out Monday evening, still nothing. I'm guessing/hoping next week we should start seeing some action. I'll be in Oklahoma this weekend, going to try to sneak away and find some woods to explore if i can :)
    I see your contact info above. I'll hit you up next week and we'll set something up.

    If I was home this weekend I would be out for sure. You never know unless you look right?!

    Get out of my head Zach!! I was going to email you today to see if you wanted to go out this weekend lol. Sounds like we're on the same page, and depending on how old your son is, absolutely bring him. I'm not as young as I used to be and need little people to get into those hard to reach areas haha :mrgreen:

    I'll hit you up on gmail for details.

    Micomikey and Zach I live in the Wichita area, but my dad lives near Beagle, Kansas just south of Osawatomie. I am coming up tonight until Sunday and we are going to try it out. Have you found any around there yet?

    Nothing from my known spots, but I'm not convinced there's not some up somewhere, they're poppin just about everywhere else. I think this weekend is going to be a good weekend to look.
