Thanks to all of you on this forum, I got into my first morels this spring, and now can't seem to be in the woods without looking for something tasty!  

I'm pretty sure I found some oysters, but thought I would post here to see if I could possibly be confusing these for something else.  
All were found on poplar, had that "anise" smell (I think), and had white spore prints.  Also noticed that some were quite buggy and wormy when I got them home.

 

What do you think?IMG_1403.thumb.JPG.f15e89c62c539774eb0dfIMG_1402.thumb.JPG.f0cd2be877c40873b4057IMG_1401.thumb.JPG.0bb5d99790efe2db6e45eIMG_1400.thumb.JPG.7821c47e1da0feac50d4bIMG_1405.thumb.JPG.8c0586ba6d482c7cec4d6IMG_1391.thumb.JPG.8cb29ada41a084acecda7

I think you did a great job of doing your homework and will be eating oysters for years to come. A tip for the worms......pick early ;)  if not....after cleaning,  try to remove as much moisture as you can, layer them between paper towels on a plate, bag'em, and put then in the fridge. Most of the worms will crawl out. When you cook them up, don't overload the pan and will be able to see the few that are left.

Nicely done, Caddis.  Welcome to the addiction. :) 

Yeah, oysters tend to get really buggy, especially from little black beetles. You can salvage them if a few have moved in, as the "damage" can stay pretty localized.  Just cut out the bad parts and bring the rest home.  They also dehydrate and rehydrate quite easily without (to my palate, anyways) much loss in flavor, and they usually grow in profusion, so you can save a few to toss in your eggs in the middle of a Minnesota winter.

    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home. 
    • MJ 1657 I just bought an M50. Mills had them on sale for $129.99. The infared version was $139.99. Only been using it for about a week and so far I like it. That buck in the night time pictures is quite a ways out from the camera.    I've had a Moultrie 880 for years and it's been a solid camera.    MJ Did this Moultrie have picture video at the same time like the old 880? I have not found another camera to do that but the Moultrie and it's great. I'm running out of this version only have two left now.
