Fall Mushrooms

Recommended Posts

Since the prospects of fishing a high muddy river don't appeal to me, I've decided to get my outdoor fix by hiking into the woods. The 3+ inches of rain the Rockford area received earlier in the week really has the fall mushrooms going. I've been finding a lot of shaggy manes, oysters, and today I found a mother load of hen of the woods under 1 oak tree. I picked the 2 clumps to the right and left of the tree. They weighed about 5 pounds each. The clump in the center was massive. I think I would need to come back with a wheel barrel and pick up truck to get that one. I left it since how much fungus can one family eat?
