    I'm new to the board but not new to the mushroom world. I've been studying and hunting mushrooms for a long time and so thought I'd share some of the cool mushroom photos that I've taken over the years.

    Very cool finds, I'd love to find my first black trumpet... I'd settle for morels at the moment though. :)

    I've dreamed of finding black trumpets! What type of environment do you target? Thanks

    I find them in the same place as chanterelles in midsummer. They're probably more common than most people think, they are just usually extremely hard to see.

    I have not found any myself. Heard they are great in a cream sauce also.

    WesternMN, when do you harvest trumpets? Early with morels or later?

    Later, much later. I've only found them in the hottest part of the summer when the moisture is right. Lots of mosquitos. In the same places that I find chanterelles, mixed deciduous woodland. They seem to be pretty common but they're extremely hard to spot. I've found them in grassy openings, parks and deep in the woods. Seems like the deeper and darker woods grow them larger and thicker while the ones found in grassy, sunny areas are generally smaller and thinner.

    Actually, @elmgirl, if you are referring to "devils urn", they aren't poisonous despite their name, just very tough and leathery and not very flavorful. Black trumpets are a summer mushroom and don't have a poisonous look-alike. That being said, anyone should always consult an expert before consuming any mushroom they are not positive of identification.
