I got 14 lbs in a 1 1/2 hr hunt. Left literally hundreds. My son got 12 lbs in a short eve hunt in the same spot. I been so many times now I kind of lot track but I think 40 or 45 lbs for me and my wife and 12 for my boy. We ran two dehydrators and have them all put up. If I could get away I would go back but am tied up the whole week.
I wouldn`t soak them in water until about an hour before you are going to eat them. The water starts the rottening process and soaking them in water for a long time will end up with soup. Treat them just as you would fresh mushrooms you buy in the store.
Back to finding only a couple pounds at a time. Most were very fresh. Still some small greys but also some of the pointy ones found in grass. I seem to find those when season is almost done. What a season! ~40 lbs so far.
