    Time to explore

    Nice Feral Boy..Can't wait for our turn in the PNW... eastern WA.. I went to the table top fire to check it out it is still a little early..Me thinks a couple more weeks and we'll be in full flush. Most of the roads are closed right now I had to walk in a few miles to get skunked..They arent selling commercial picking permits yet as they are changing some of the regulations and awaiting the flushes..April 15 is as early as they expected to be issuing any...

    Matsutake anyone?????

    Keep looking theplanets they'll show themselves soon enough!!!!!!!!!!!! I know where I'm at they love white pine and lodgepole pine.. The biggest flushes I find always seem to be close to the road cuts
  5. Some Pines i found after work yesterday. They are a few weeks earlier than i have seen them in this spot. I love how they just push rocks out of their way. Some were already done for... anyways hope you'll enjoy. Peace

    I was working on Monday, I am a Timber Cruiser and came across the nicest specimen of a cauliflower I have ever found..Put some on a pizza for my co-workers (not big mushroom fans)they loved it and I have succeeded in turning a few more people on to shroomin...! Then made an Alfredo sauce last night and used the cauliflower as the pasta.... When I get home I'll put up some pics...The channies are poppin on the WA coast. Just a couple weeks til full flushes... Peace

    Fall Mushrooms in the Pacific NW

    The chantrelles I'm finding are getting more rare. I am still finding a decent amount of Matsutakes though, they last for a while longer. The hedgehogs are still coming on strong, now is when you find the nice ones {brought some to my Dad's for Thankgiving}. I have seen mice and rat trails that have mushrooms in them, the spores sprout and mycelium grows in their droppings... Deer and elk love the Kings I often find them with a huge chunk bitten out of them.
