Anyone out lookin. I found a couple different ones today but not sure what they are. I forwarded some pics to one of my buddies for ID. I think I had a chantrelle, old man of the woods, sulfur shelf and a sheepshead. I thought it was a little early for the sheeps head though. I usually start lookin around labor day for them. I know what a morel looks and a sheeps head but thats it. Has anyone else found any of these shrooms this season so far. Thanks

Re: Mushrooms

I was out looking for chantrelles this weekend. I've never picked them before. I found tons of boletes. They were all over the place. Bugs and critters must love them because 90 percent of them were eaten on the tops. It seems to be a decent year for field mushrooms with the recent rains we've had. It's possible you might have found a polypore and not a sheepshead. It's very early for those. See the link below for a pic of a polypore.

Re: Mushrooms

My guess is polypore also. It is indeed a bit early for Hen's, but not completely unheard of.

By the way, you won't find a Morel in the fall.... well in PA anyhow.

Re: Mushrooms

Re: Mushrooms

took a ride thru community park in Girard, Erie county last evening. one campsite had 4 large heads of polypore mushrooms sitting on their deck. looked fresh. It was raining and didn't see anyone around. On a backroad goin bak to our campground i spotted a stump with very large polypore, looked a tad bit too old so i didn't bother to cut. there will be plenty of fresh in the coming months.
