Any day now with the cool temps. Last year they had the first fruiting August which caught some off guard in early August after a cool spell and the suillius and other cool weather mushrooms have already fruited in many locations.
wonderful bulldog..we went out in clinton co ,and killed the oysters..didnt see much fungus growing.we checked that one in the picture and it has doubled in size..its about 3.5 in acrossnow and 3.5 in tall we have a pic we will post in a bit....and we found some sort of puffball maybe that looks like an acorn,or maybe a nipple? weird looking.it had a flat base bout the size of a quarter and a ball on top..no camera with us there
Where in NE ohio are you? I hunt mostly in Geauga county. I had good luck with trumpets on very steep hills where moss grows over an edge. They would usually flush down the hill side about half way. Very very hard to see even when they are surrounding you very close. What trees are you finding the hens on?
@hungry NE Ohio Trumbull Co........I found them where a dead oak had fallen at the base 6 more I left to grow and found another one popping at the base of another big oak hopefully there will be others at that tree also.....I will be hitting other hardwood forests over this week! Much success guy's!!!
Well the other 9 hens are not showing much growth none of them have spored yet...I did see where there was some others starting to pop around them. Should I take these small one Fri? I did check another woods and found a young one I will check on Fri......I think the hens will do better with cooler weather too hot and humid now. I think it will be a good year for the hens though it's still early.
Cooley Ive left small ones go for 2 or 3 weeks before.If you check it regular you will see if the pores start to open.If they do snatch it.Itll be fine as long as its not all open huge pores.Youre right about this heat.I think this is a false start like last year the main one will be later.
I found one hen this afternoon that stunk pretty bad it was to far gone although I did find some nice chickens.......Ant do others usually come up where you find the ones now around the same trees later? On the pores you should be able to see them with the naked eye right? When do you suggest hitting it pretty hard?
