    Hey . . . I'll throw a second card on the table of "Summer Shrooms".

    These first Chicken of the Woods Mushrooms (Laetiporus sulphureus) I found Friday 5/12.

    They were/are so tender and moist and bug free, I couldn't resist. I'm finally going to get to eat them tonight.

    Hmmm, fry like chicken tenders or make fry size long pieces?

    hey shroomdog know you from another board I think we mod together. Do you get a lot of lobsters? I only find some every year and they are good. Trumpets are my #1 mushroom love them, do you get many in ohio?

    When do Boletes typically start popping?

    Is that a Maple tree that they are hugging? Alive?

    geogymn - The tree is alive and is an old oak. If you look closely at the second pic you'll see several acorn caps. (I'll double check this next time there).

    I went back there Monday, this week and passed on more Chickens but my neighbor took some home and dried and powdered it. He likes to add it to gravy.

    Scott C's creation of this Summer-Shroom thread is so deserving that I'm going to re-post this pic below of an April Lion's Mane or Herecium I found.

    I normally find these late summer into Fall. Last year I got a boatload in October -- enough to be taking my "medicinal dried powder" in cooked cereal and pancakes until the end of this month probably.

    The one above, I found April 25th, 2017. That's the earliest ever for me.

    Has any one else found Lion's Mane in the Spring or early Summer?

    Well . . . the rest of the story (immediate above) is that I found that Lion's Mane along with some of my last Morels of this season.

    sb that sure is interesting never found a mane in the spring. Never really looked for them and the woods I hunt in the spring really aren't mane woods but all the years and miles never found one. Congrats on a great find!!

    Yesterday I went out near Hamilton,OH and found some lobsters but I went to all of my other places and didn't see one.
