Welp

I reckon there's oysters out there, chickens, and various types of yard mushrooms, like horse, puffs, and meadow, that can be picked. But I think this year I may try to find a Chanterelle spot in some predominant Oak forests. I typically never look for them, since they start after a good rain or 3 in July, and the woods are usually just so muggy and sticky.


BUT, many folks say THEY are the choicest of choice mushroom. Even over the mighty Morel. Wegman's seems to think so too. So maybe I'll get a bit more gumption this year and head out.

Fleroo, Wife & I are fortunate to have Chanterelles in our woods.
They really like to grow in the ATV trail, between the tire tracks and along side. (or ATV trail is on their growing area)

I found a chant patch behind my uncles last year that was huge. I picked an onion sack full. Had I been 3 days earlier, I probably could have filled up a few 5 gallon buckets. I also found a huge patch of black trumpets the second Saturday of youth squirrel up where we bear hunt. My kid was so excited he quit hunting squirrels and started hunting black trumpets.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

The trumpets were in open areas around red, white and chestnut oaks on ground with thin leaf litter. The chants were around oaks near 4 wheeler trails.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

I have several very good patches of Chanterelles now if I can find someone who wants to pay for them I'll be happy. They are all in open hardwood areas.

If you go on the Pa mushroom hunter facebook page there are mushroom buyers on it.
