Here in W/C ohio the dark delicious fall/winter oysters have been showing up like crazy and freezing nicely. I have been bringing home pounds each time out off tulip and elm dead fall and popping right in the freezer what I don't eat. amazing numbers and size, keep looking frinds as it has been a while since I have checked in here. Good luck and happy holidays.
same here in mid south, i found a whole mess in one dead tree yesterday. they were in perfect condition hardly any bugs, brought some home to eat and it was better than dryland fish. the good ones i couldn't reach. going to get the extend ladder today to get the good ones.
how will the freeze effect the texture? its 22 degrees this morning, and i was going to dehydrate the rest as my deep freezer is full, these are huge clusters.
i have no clue b castle, except this one stuck out like a sore thumb. i think its a maple tree. in the summer months the white oysters pop out of old tree stumps year after year, but they aint as good as these tan brown gray ones. the tree is about 60 ft tall.what you see in this pic is what i left.
Glad we could help, at work with no access to photos, bad excuse but the reason and the last 2 inches of rain followed by an ice storms has started another fkush in Ohio. They can fruit anytime when temps each 45-50 by day and drop to no more than 28 degrees at night. I will bring pounds of fresh frozen oysters home tomrrow.
