Turning out for a really good year for sheephead

Well atleast for me, specially this early. from the 6th-10th I now cut,23 total roots. One stump of mine had 6 nice heads. some other trees/stumps "sported" a root but not much mushroom.(first pictures)

Second Pictures is the 3 trees( within 15ft from each other) i checked today 9-10-2011 one tree traditionally makes one, it did, and the other tree makes One as well...but instead it made 8!! it's actually two oak trees together and one of them had fallen on a 45% angle this year. I wish I had my camera at the time to take pictures of them growing but I did not. 3 were growing on the "air"ed root which I think might not make them there again. and one mushroom grew underneath the uplifted tree, it was pretty neat to find one there. it was "hidden".
