Re: Learning to pick wild mushrooms?
I started when I was about 17 years old. I had heard of these mushrooms that people were going crazy over called morels... The rest is history.
Once you find that first one you will feel the reward and want to get more and more. I don't know how many times I would go "check" a spot and not be able to leave for hours because I kept finding them.
It's a fun thing to do, morels are tough and people aren't going to give you much help. Best advice I ever got was read read read. Eventually you'll put a pattern together and know what types of areas to look for them in.
Beware. Mushrooms are a very condition pending resource.
If it rains to much they will die, if it doesn't rain enough
They will never come up. A lot of it is being in the right place at the right time.
I've picked a spot befor and got a half dozen or so, went back 2 days later and picked 100's
