Hunting: Island's a dream for mushroom hunters
Posted by psynaut on Thursday, November 17 @ 11:45:56 EST (80 reads)

Hunting Erin Fletcher The Star

The next time you got out for a walk in the woods, look down. You may be stepping on a great meal.

Vancouver Island is home to more than 2,000 mushroom species and many of the more common ones are delicious sauteed in butter and garlic.

But when it comes to mushroom hunting, the challenge is not in the hunt but in knowing which ones are edible and which ones will give your intestines a terrible turn.

Last week a group of eager mushroom hunters gathered at Wildwood, a Land Conservancy forest in Yellowpoint, to learn how to identify and cook the delicate fungus we are all so fond of. Rob Countess, owner of Vancouver Island Nature Exploration, an eco-tourism company based out of Port Hardy, hosted the one-day workshop.

Hunting: Giant-sized mushroom found in southern Oregon
Posted by psynaut on Wednesday, May 25 @ 10:01:57 EDT (402 reads)

Hunting RUCH, Ore. - Larry Belau's humongous morel mushroom has tongues wagging in the Jackson County hamlet of Ruch.

Standing 12 inches tall, measuring 14 inches around and weighing nearly a pound, it sits in the ice cream case at Aunty Pasta's restaurant.

Mushroom hunters and ordinary folks have been coming in for a look.

Belau found it last weekend.

Catherine Johnson owns the restaurant. She says some people take pictures of it and others just "oogle it."

Wildflowers were on Belau's mind when he headed into the woods. The 56-year-old said finding the mushroom was a fluke.

Mushroom experts like Gordon Larum say morels of that scale are rare, but not unheard of.

Larum says they would probably be more common if people didn't harvest them so ferociously.

Hunting: Mushroom harvesters strike
Posted by Psynaut on Friday, October 08 @ 02:16:33 EDT (465 reads)

Hunting CRESCENT JUNCTION, Ore. -- Matsutake mushrooms were a fast fortune once for the many Southeast Asian immigrants who prowled the pine forests of the Oregon Cascades for the beige-white fungi.
In the early 1990s the price went crazy, at times topping $500 a pound for sale fresh to a voracious market in Japan.

That didn't last, but in early September, when the pickers moved into the camps for the two-month season, the price was still $28 a pound for top grade matsutakes.

Then the bottom dropped out -- to $18 a pound, to $8, to $4, then to $3.

Hunting mark_h writes "When I've been out foraying so far this spring, I've seen some of the expected spring fungi. I've also seen autumn fungi as well!! Examples from Saturday just gone include Paxillus Involutus(Brown Roll Rim), Leccinum Versipelle(Orange Birch Bolete). When you are out and about, have a look and see if you have any surprises! "

Hunting: Morel season has started
Posted by Psynaut on Thursday, April 22 @ 20:50:00 EDT (266 reads)

Hunting As I'm sure many of you hunting enthusiasts know, the spring morel season for most of North America has started :)

As of writing this, prices are around $16 a pound for those willing to sell there harvest...at least in my part of the world.

If anyone has information to post on the season (articles, stories, picture, prices and location) please feel free to do so.

Hope everyone has a great season

Hunting: Time to Hunt Wild Morel Mushrooms
Posted by Psynaut on Thursday, April 22 @ 20:35:54 EDT (616 reads)

Hunting Morels are found in the spring in late April and May, when redbuds, dogwoods, and certain fruit trees bloom. The mushrooms appear about a week after the first good rain. The morel, Morchella esculenta, is of the best-tasting, most popular mushrooms collected from the wild. It is the easiest wild mushroom to identify, even for a beginner.
