You can sell them at my house. $1.00/pound, I'll take them all;)

Seriously, that's a lot of Mushrooms. I've been looking but have only managed to find one outcropping of False Morels;(

You could check with local Restaurants and Grocery Stores and see if there is any interest. Otherwise thread them onto a few srrings, hang them in a dry place with a little air flow and let them dry. Rehydrate them when you want to use some.

I like the first suggestion I gave you the most though.

One year we got into the mother load like you have and we called a local restaurant (nice one) and they said bring them in we will take all you have. When we got there they breezed us into the kitchen like we were royalty everybody watching as we came in with our load of shrooms. They already had the menu figured out. Fillet with Morel mushroom sauce etc.

I have a relative in Madison who works in the restaurant industry who told me that he could get $40 a lb for them one time. I don't really know any good places to sell them right off hand but I know if you went to Lacrosse you could probably find some place to sell them.

My buddy had 60plus pounds last weekend.He checked a few places up here and the restaurants and grocery stores he checked said they needed to have some kind of certification deal to sell them.I think he sold them to a place down in Madison.This just changed this year,cause in years past we could just go to these places and unload them no prob.

    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
