    So while we're all waiting for warm weather, I'd like to know what every ones opinion and/or experience is about leaving mushrooms to spore. When you find a bunch of mushrooms, or even a few, do you leave some even if they're fresh enough to pick or do you pick them all? I've personally never found so many that I wanted to leave any, but I'm always open to learning new things. :)

    I have waited till I get them home and then lay them outside in the shade for a half a day or so, usually half or more will spore that wayand it wont hurt the flavor a bit. That works better than a webbed sack in my opinion.

    Happy Hunting !!!
