Nut; that sounds encouraging. as soon as I get some carrots jarred and the wife gets home from work were goin lookin. We've had luck with sulphur shelf and some bearded tooth so far but no sheeps. We checked our sheeps trail last Fri. the 18th with no luck. The trail takes about 6 hours covering a large area here in SW Pa. I'll post what we find.

I found one of these today on a ten inch red oak stump. The mushroom seemed like it was about the size of a baseball. How long before it gets big?

Nut, ok wife and I found 4 that would go 3 to 5 pound each. Thats a good start but I know the best is yet to come. Didn't find any that I would let go for another day but whats dissapointing is two of our best trees fell. they fell across the township dirt road and were completely dug up and removed. No bearded toothes but found a little more sulfur shelf that was tender enough to pick. I am simmering those in chicken broth now, then I'll bread them and deep fry. I'm sangin tomorrow.

It seems like a good year so far in NW Pa. I've picked three so far and left 13 small ones. They seem to be growing even though there has been very little rain lately. The temps must be just right.
