Puffballs and Meadow shrooms.....delicious! Didn't have very good luck with the Morels this year..only 80 or so. Last year we picked over 300.

I have been too busy with my newest obsession, archery deer. Some hens sound good. Might just have to go to the honey hole and see if they are there this year.

Good Luck!

What is the small one in the middle?....Are there harmful imposters that look similar?....How do you prepare them?

The reason I'm asking is because I'm seeing a pigpile of these on my property right now.

The middle one is a shaggy mane...I haven't seen any others that look similar..If they have any black on them throw them out..they don't last long in the edible stage..To prepare them just get the dirt/sand off and saute' in a little clarified butter and garlic..I always cut them in half to check and make sure they haven't got any black starting (it starts at the bottom of the cap)..Do a search under shaggy mane and tons of info should come up...

Yellow ones in top pics are Fly Agarics, don't eat them.

I'm not too sure of the other shrooms, hopefully someone will chime in.

The first ones(yellow) are Amanitas aka Toadstools and they are toxic or trippy, depending on whom you ask.

I believe the last 2 years in the same spot in my yard i have had Shaggy Main.

How would you prepare these and what portions are edible on them?

Thanks

What are the yellow/orange ones in the picture above the shaggy mains? And what do the chickens and oysters look like?

The yellow/orange ones are the chicken of the woods/sulphur shelf...I didn't take any pics of the oysters I got but a quick google search will show you plenty of pics..

    • 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....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!
