    I used to go searching for these things growing up in Indiana. I remember after the first rains in April would be the best time to go get em. We used to find them in college and as poor college students, it made a good meal deep fried up.

    Are they in PA? On the Eastside?

    I used to find a few this time of year. You should have some in your area unless the ground is totally polluted.

    i have never looked personally but know many people who do every year they say the best shot at finding them are on steep heavy wooded hillsides and this is the right time of year. hope this helps good luck!

    A hunter friend of mine brought in some hen-o-the-woods mushrooms all deep fried and they were very tasty.While I was still health enough to work that's when he brought them as a side for deer meatball sandwiches

    Tan I found 5 real small ones today 4/14 near Dillon Res. I think we are both on the same latitude. If they grow there you should find them by the weekend. All next week fer sure.

    They're mushrooms. You find them under dead elms, and ash trees.
