Hello, this is only my second year mushroom hunting. I live in hudson in st. Croix county. I did not grow up in hudson so I am not well versed on the area. By no means am I asking where to go but but if someone has any tips on this area that would be great. I have only tried the nearby state park. Advice welcome

Chelina, welcome to the valley. Yes that park gets pounded hard,but there are loads of areas within 1/2 hour of hudson.
Head on up to Fleet Farm, and ask them for a 2015 Wis DNR trout regulation pamphlet, it's got a map of all the trout streams by county. Trout streams almost always have foot accessibility, Apple river, ten mile creek, Willow & the kinnincanic,Rush river, ect..... all good spots, plus we always cross the boarder into Minn and raid them cause nobody over there seems to ever be out. Have a GRAND season & good luck.

Thanks so much OldElm! great advice, exactly what I needed. Also what time of day do you like going hunting? I found I could see them best around 7am, but I am curious. Buckthornman, what is the lilacometer?

Chelina, I like hunting them anytime of day, but morning are best cause the Ticks are slower then. :wink: Buckthorn was referring to the lilac's blooming, which is one sign people use to gauge when the flush is in its prime. We have a whole bag of tricks/customs to use. # 1 is to be out there often, and hit lots & lots of different places. Have you been out yet? Hint ramps are up & decent size, no fiddle heads yet.

Yeah I went out about a week ago just to a local park to scout a future location, will be going out Tuesday for ramps. Thanks for all the info. Now I know where to go to ask questions! Best of luck!
