Thinking this mushroom season will be good

Discussion in 'Mushroom Hunting' started by TCNashville, Feb 7, 2018.

  1. The last few years of hunting morels have been mediocre at best for me. Weird weather, early blooms, late blooms, old, new, blah blah. I've hunted morels for quite a number of years now and actually think I know what I'm doing. To the point. We haven't had a winter like this for quite some time. I'm thinkin the last one was around '12 or '13 with somewhat prolonged snow cover/cold and those seasons following were banner years for me. Of course, that was pre Emerald Ash Borer, which by the way is really pi$$ing me off. Can't wait to get out this year.
     
  2. Its one of my favorite times. Just being in the woods in the spring watching it come alive with growth and hunting mushrooms. I have only hunted 3 years now. I can't say I've been highly succesful as I have never found a patch just ones twos or threes here and there. But the feeling you get when you find some is just different.
     

  3. Icons have many mushrooms on my place an in my hood but I started checking Dead ash , and low and behold i started finding mushrooms under the DEAD ASH last year was first year for the DEAD trees looking forward to this year and hopefully a number crop due to the DEAD trees
     
  4. I have wondered if Ash trees will turn out to be like the Elms as far as finding mushrooms around them after they die? It seems Ash trees only remain standing for a couple of years after they die. Unlike Elm that can stand for many years? Time will tell, but I will be looking around both the live Ash and the dead ones?
     
  5. I think they will . I was finding them under Ash last year several btw
     
  6. I’ll take an ash tree over an elm any day. I find the biggest and the most yellows around ash trees every year.
