Re: mushroom hunters

I've been out for the last couple of days just wandering the woods. Some of the first mushrooms are up, but none of the edibles yet.

Re: mushroom hunters

I never wear orange morel hunting unless I am turkey hunting at the same time, lol- BUT, it is a good idea to do that.

Re: mushroom hunters

You have to have permits to collect insects on game lands, so you may have a point, lol

Re: mushroom hunters

What do you mean Gal? I grab a bug once in a while to see what is hatching. I don't take them home and put them in alcohol or anything. I just catch them and let them go or maybe they might get a little squished in the process.

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!

Re: mushroom hunters

I do take them home and put them in alcohol- but just the auatics to document what is in a stream. I have a scientific collectors permit from Fish and Boat for most waterways in the Commonwealth, and I have a special permit from DCNR to collect on their land. Just learned I need one from game to collect on game lands, tho I have never collected on a game land.

Collections are considered 50 or more insects in possession, at least by fish and boat standards, and you need a fishing license to collect up to 50. Just a heads up.
