    Couple more questions since I cant get enough fried mushrooms. I would assume they have the same taste and texture as other store bought mushrooms? Also what areas should I focus on when hunting for wild mushrooms?

    if you eat one of these you wont eat a store bought one again were your from idont know but here in Ind. we find them in old coal minds around sicamore trees an around may apples the best thing to do is find some one that hunts for them around you an have them to show you what to look for

    Outstanding my man, it not quite time here maybe in a week or two. If I get a bunch I dry them, works great in chili or spaggetti. But nothing is better than a little butter and a medium heat.

    Bill, I usually find a bunch of blacks two weeks before the grays and yellows show their heads. Like Paul said just about two weeks to wait here. I have seen blacks in the middle of March before even found them in the snow.lol My big yellow woods starts the first week of May, just like clock work.:smile2:

    HI Bill
    I was out in the woods all week - repairing and building fences. The mayapples are opening up so it won't be but a few days in West Central Indiana. I think we're gettin a cold snap late next week so that will probably knock em down for a while but I expect to find a few between now and then.

    There is nothing I would rather eat than morels. We used to find a load on my granpas land when I was a kid. Around hear mushroom spots are more fiercely guarded than fishing spots. There are people that hit the same secret spots every year and have enough to sell. I'm lucky if I can find enough on public land to fill half a skillet.

    Boy you lucky devil.Good to get a report that they are starting to pop up now. I just don't seem to have much luck finding them anymore.Guess the ole eyes aren't what they used to be.Last time I went didn't find any of them things however I did find 25 ticks or should say they found me. Good luck everyone on your search.

    Are you saying those old dried up yellows were picked in the end of March ? This year? APRIL FOOLS?
