My wife and I went mushroom hunting around our property yesterday after work. We did really well. We found most of them on the bank areas of the two creeks that feed the pond.

A mixture of different varieties of tasty Morel Mushrooms.

Yeah! Yum Yum Yum!


If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Eric,
It's a mid-west thing. But I have to say, if you like mushrooms, you can't beat peckerheads.

I actually found 2 morels Friday night. I have a really bad eye for hunting mushrooms. It helps if I have a dozer clear off acreage the Winter before.

I still remember college final exams one year at a college I graduated from in Michigan. Some of the fisheries students went out and got a boat load of morels and were frying them up in butter. I had to leave for a final exam but all I could think about was those mouth watering morels when I got back! Trouble was when I got back they were all gone!

Weissguy -

I am happy for your productive hunting...I've been twice with ZERO success. Granted, I'm up North of you a couple hundred miles, but I'm very frustrated and wondering if I'm going to have a season at all this year!

I don't know if enough are sold to make a commercial market or not, but lots of them are sold P-T-P. I know lots of them change hands at the local hangouts at $25.00 to $50.00 per pound. Friends of friends from St. Louis came out and hunted last weekend. When they arrived they said their neighbor had offered them $100.00 per pound for a couple of #s. They hadn't hunted them much before but their host had. They found seven pounds. A "mess" of them were cooked up for lunch and they decided they would rather keep their part of the seven ## than sell them. "They really are good guys". I was curious about why there have been so few posts on this the subject, but then I went on the mushrooms hunter's web site and realized how regional they are. There are lots of pictures from the midwest and upper midwest, but none from Texas. Around here no one calls them Schrooms. They are respectfully called their proper name, Mushrooms. Also, the pecker heads are the least sought after here. They are the first to show up in the spring and many hunters just leave them while looking for the more desirable white, yellow and even black morels. I am not a very good hunter, but Mrs. B. is an excellent pie baker. She barters pies for mushrooms with a neighbor.

These morels should go really well with the fish fry that some Texans need to set up for the upcoming Pond Boss Convention in July.

Weissguy, what say we freezedry some of these and you can bring them to Arlington in July.

I'm not sure I've ever seen a mushroom. I'm reaaly butt deep in toadstools but not sure they're edible.


It's not about the fish. It's about the pond. Take care of the pond and the fish will be fine. PB subscriber since before it was in color.

Found seven pounds this weekend. Fried them up with fresh walleye, ate like a king.

I wouldn't know a mushroom from a toadstool. Knowing my luck I'd eat the wrong kind and act even more bizarre than normal (and probably no one would even notice). Mushrooms kinda taste like dirt to me.

get up and tell you where to go
And you just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving slow
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know

Sadly.... I went back out to the same areas yesterday and found just 6 morels. They were big yellows though. Looks like the season may be nearing an end in my area.
