I was out morel hunting last night up near Elk River, MN and came across my first Chicken of the Woods! This is the earliest I've found one of these. Its a young one, but probably the freshest I've ever found.
I was going to leave it grow and harvest it later, but I found it on an island that won't be accessible for long once the water level drops. Maybe I can make it back with my kayak this summer, who knows...
Anyway, lets hear from you guys out there, whats the earliest you've found a summertime edible?
Also, post about your success this summer. Good hunting everyone!

That looks like a pretty nice chicken! Last year I found a chicken during the middle of morel season, probably May 15th or so. They come out in the spring and you can find them during morel season, there aren't a lot until June and July though. Check out our video of some of our first chickens and oysters! Also, if you know of any other mushrooms that are out now, let me know.
