Do any of you “Moreler’s” get after the Chanterelles or chicken -o- the woods? I’ve gotten into the chickens,but never found any Chanterelles in my summer forays. what's the deal with them?

Probably late June and July for Chanterelles. I find them in mixed hardwoods around Beech trees. Your season shouldn't be much different then Michigan's.

And some " Chickens " I found and cooked up like " chicken tenders "

Jack, thank you for the info, much appreciated &amp; also the direction (pictures really help ).We'll try your chicken tenders idea on the next one we find! The above picture is one you identified for me last July. " chanterelles" have got to be available in our area,and they look delicious....

Nice one there ! Season them just like you would Chicken . The only difference is you won't have to fry them as long. If you don't tell people, they usually think it's real chicken. I'm in Northern Michigan " Lewiston " about 45 minutes from the Bridge. I hear about them fruiting Downstate, then about a week later, I start looking up here. Good luck this summer, and keep us posted !

Anybody been out? Two awesome thunder storms, two days in a row, temps staying high through the nights, got to be something popping up pretty soon? I want a chicken, so that we can try Jacks receipt for chicken - o- the woods strips!! Off the next few days, so I'll be out cruising the woods.... Umm.

Just got back in from a good Chant Cruise, came up empty. Maybe still kinda early over here. Anybody else been out? There's sure been enough rain around here lately, so my guess is the next week or two..... Hope! bugs not at all bad today.

No Chickens or Chanterelles yet for me here in Marathon County. I have only found a couple of puffballs. I did find a bunch of Grey Boletes and Suillus brevipes while on vacation near Vilas county last week. Were in a little dry spell here and could use a little rain to get things poppin!

piotrowski10, good to hear that someone is getting into the Chant's here in good O'le Wisconie.... Be two super hot/dry weeks over here, haven't even ventured out on a hunt, just been coolin the heels fishing. (=

Next big rain I'll be out. How long do "Chants" usually go??

After the last few days of rain, I did find about 20 chanterelles. A lot of walking for just a few but the exercise in this cool weather with no bugs is great for July! I think they are just starting as we also found quite a few Black Trumpets which seem to show up first. The Chants and Trumpets should last a while. I was told by a friend that he can find the trumpets for 4-5 weeks.
