6 posts in this topic

Fought some skeeters today and found some chanterelles and a shed...

The chants grow at the base of white oaks...

I left many if the woods that were already too eaten by the bugs. Some were nice and fresh...

Now it's time to rinse these babies off and get to eating them!

....and as always with wild mushrooms, please don't try this at home. Please consult a "professional" first. There are some real close looking deadly, or wish you were dead, look alikes out there.

Nice find! Are you S.MN? Maybe time to start checking around here. Great to see you took the time to cut them off also. Those look like red oak (pointed leaves) from last year but maybe there was a mix of both? Thanks for posting the pics.

These are from the Twin Cities area. Western burbs. The forest is about 3:1 red oaks to white oaks. I would prefer more whites, but take what I can get. Good Luck hunting up that way crawdad!

Note taken on the whites....do you prefer to dry yours if you have enough? Nice thing about chants is the longer season, and we've had good moisture this year, should be good finds out there. Thanks, good luck too.

Moby, here in MN, with a little experience one can confidently pick out a large number of edible mushrooms without any tests. I have never chemically tested a mushroom, and I can confidently identify a good number of edible MN mushrooms. A chemical test is often used when folks are trying to identify EVERY species in an area(heard of a BIOBLITZ?), but for regular foraging very few people use a chemical test.

If you are wanting to get out and learn a few edibles I would suggest looking at the Minnesota Mycological Society. They have had a "Paul Bunyon" chapter in northern Mn the last couple of years. MMS has both "classroom" identification meetings, and group forays. I was a member the last two years. I found the hands on learning of the forays creates a very fast learning curve. Of course one could and should also purchase a couple of field guides.

Even with a field guide I strongly encourage anyone who is starting mushroom foraging to start with a mentor.

Also always remember, "When in doubt, throw it out." and "There are brave people who eat mushrooms. There are old people that eat mushrooms, but there are no old brave people eating mushrooms."

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
