I pardon'd the turkeys and small mouth bass this morning for a shroom hunting trip instead.
It was a great morning and I look for about 3 hours but STILL NOT ONE SINGLE MOREL
I went to a different location today, quite different than my home place here. This place was a big creek bottom area next to a large creek (averages 30-40'wide).
There were lots of (non oak trees) in that area, sycamores, ash, boxelder, etc.
I found a few decent dead sycamore trees and several dead cedar trees and lots of other trees that had been killed by beaver (like the one in the image below) and I found lots of shrooms, but no morel's.
Now near the end of my hunt - when I got around that big creek bottom and back near the road. The elect company had cleared some new paths for electric poles and right near the highway there was some huge piles of mulch where they had chipped up trees and branches.
Part of that was just covered in this type of shrooms.
Can you ID these for me ?
Are they good to eat ?
I did not collect any but there is a bunch there and it is right near the road.
