  1. Thanks for the feed back gentlemen. Much obliged. Good luck this mushroom season.
  2. Wow that’s awesome!! Always something positive if we really dig deep enough!! Im thinking of making the switch. Gonna get out and shoot as many traditional bows as possible to get the feel on what fits me. Harvested my first buck this past season. First bow kill as well mind ya. Lol Still on cloud nine !! Might I add , public land 😬 I'm no trophy hunter by any means. Can’t eat horns. That’s just what God had in store for me to harvest that day. Pretty spiritual/emotional experience to say the least
  3. Mowing them down huh Bowguy?!?! Outstanding!! What ya shooting? Traditional, compound?
  4. Welcome aboard!! Very friendly and knowledgeable folks here
  5. Mais yeah I know where dats at !! I fish there from time to time. Welcome aboard. I’ll be trying to get a group together this spring or summer to do some foraging
  6. They do exist!! November-January has been productive for me Which parts are ya located?
  7. Welcome Diab!! Great to see fellow Louisianaians enjoying what our beautiful state had to offer. I apologize for the late welcoming. Been chasing whitetail. Harvested a few Hericium aka Lions mane and oysters while hunting this year. I’m in the Breaux Bridge area
  8. I have my hands pretty full with life right now. All good things just super busy. Post your finds in the identification section and the more detailed you are with pictures and descriptions the closer we can come to a positive ID.
  9. I’m hoping to get a foray together late spring early summer 2019. More than likely it’ll be at Red Dirt Trail System Kisatchie National Forest
  10. ChefsWild !! Good to see ya here Looking forward to seeing some new dishes
  11. Welcome!! Not only sportsmans paradise but fungi paradise!! Lots of friendly folks here. Very knowledgeable as well. South Central Louisiana here
  12. Looks to be two different species. Rau......Looks like you may have Ganoderma lucidum
  13. Definitely not turkey tail and or hens. May have better luck posting in identification section with some more photos.
  14. I think you have yourself some sort of Lactarius. If I’m not mistaken, I seen white latex in second photo. Also note the rings on cap. Most Lactarius have that feature ( I believe) Not sure the species but I would bet 3 bucks it is probably spicy lol. Small amount nibbled then spat out is key in identifying some mushrooms. I’m no expert so the experts should be chiming in soon
  15. After last years run in with extremely bitter chanterelles, lions mane , and L. Indigo..... I was convinced that my taste buds completely switched. Everything I enjoyed eating,mostly wild edibles,tasted horrible(super bitter). At that very moment I was struck with the overwhelming feeling that I will never be able to enjoy wild mushrooms again !!! Very depressing. I was actually to the point where I said the heck with it. I’m done with this hobby. For whatever reason I chose to give it another go. So here I am !! The other thing I came up with is that I left the mushrooms in the fridge too long before preparing and they turned bitter.
  16. Good deal ........ I sautéed them with onions and bell peppers, tossed in some quinoa and cooked down with chicken broth. Pretty tasty actually Thanks again
  17. I hear around Hammond and Slidell the chantys are thick. It’s a matter of finding public land. National Forest and local parks(beware of parks that spray poison). All state parks are off limits. Kitsachie National Forest is pretty productive but that’s a little ways from you guys. Also hunting season is about to get kicked off there so I wouldn’t advise going until after February or March. As far as groups in the area..... I contacted The Gulf States Mycology Club... But didn’t get much of a response. They’re based out of Texas I believe and do most foraging in Western Louisiana and east Texas. I promise that we’ll get a group together next summer and hit Kisatchie..... I wanted to do something this year but we have had our hands full ...... a newborn in February and a wedding next month. Stay tuned and hopefully it’ll happen.
  18. Thanks everyone. Anyone have experience with edibility ?
  19. I think there are two different species pictured now that I reading further on ME. Note the rolled margin on some and not the others. Also these were found in wooded areas and not grassy areas Maybe Tylopilus badiceps also.
  20. What is the key feature that automatically says Tylopilus? Or is it just years of observation and knowledge ? I can’t seem to even get a genus correct on these boletes. Lol Guess I’ll have to bite the bullet and get Boletes of North America Tylopilus badiceps??? I believe this description is extremely close to what I observed. Especially the velvety cap.....mild (rather than bitter) taste Just found this ...... https://www.mushroomexpert.com/tylopilus_badiceps.html
  21. Strange and weird looking indeed!! Just thought I’d share lol
