    Barnacle when I saw your post I went right out to one of my chant areas and saw this. Big disappointment they are gilled mushrooms but for a second I thought they were starting here too. IMG_3535.JPG

    Holy shit, barnacle I cannot believe they're already popping by you. I wouldn't have bothered looking for another month.

    Yeah beat that was my reaction also! It’s only my second season ever looking for chants. I was looking for oysters that I saw last year near those spots and was going to check the vegetation to see if I should do some pruning in advance and there they were.

    Found some more chant pins. The first ones haven’t grown much. More rotten oysters. Found a ton of these gilled mushrooms. Picked a bunch of these reishi, I have never picked them before. Have to figure out what to do with them. I think I saw some of you guys dry them and make tea. Found a lone bolete that I want to try and ID with my North American bolete book that I broke down and bought finally. I’m Determined to find some porcini this year!

    PA, that would be a red-mouthed bolete, if you hadn't IDed that already.

    Right. Those ones are somewhat poisonous. Now, when you're out in oak looking for chants soon, the ones that are candy-apple red all over and red pored, those are Frost's, and they are really good if you like things a bit sour. The bugs like most all of the boletes, so it's hard to get them at just the right time, but when you do...bingo!

    Question on chicken of the woods...will they continue to pop up this summer or do they have a short season like morels?

    Not sure how it works were you guys are but here in Minnesota just about the time the morels are winding down the chickens start to show up and they continue through the summer and into early fall about the time the hen of the woods start to show up but spring and fall seem to be the best time here for them

    PAtrapper, chickens like the spring and fall, once the summer heat comes they stop fruiting. They like those 50 nights and 70 days. Happy Hunting!

    This little guy was bleating at me when I was looking for mushrooms today. I hope there weren't any coyotes nearby. IMG_3540.JPG
