I've never hunted mushrooms before and have gottin interested in it in the past month and was looking forward to going out this weekend, I guess i'll just have to put my waders on and head to the Maumee.

I have always hunted mushrooms at night.I worked the coal mines in West Virginiafor three years or so.An this old man told me after work well go look for mushrooms.We took our lights off the hard hats.An hit the hill sides we found about 20 each.

I wonder if you would find more at night? Makes you have to look harder and slow down I guess. I think I would be afraid that the light may spook them and they slither back under the leaves though.

I looked for an hour and a half last night in an area that had them last year, nothing yet. I did take a few ramps and some fiddlehead ferns.

I went out this evening for about 2 hours and found 17 morels. It was my first official trip mushroom hunting even though i've seen them in the location in previous years.

Looked for 2.5 hours on public land Sunday and found only 6. All yellows and all nice big ones; largest almost 9 inches. None were fresh and the area had been picked through pretty good!

So far the farm has produced: 3 turkeys and right around 144 mushrooms.

Just read in the paper a 12 year old boy from Gnadenhutten (Tuscarawas Co.) found a half pound morel that measured 5x9 in. That's huge! There is a pic in the Times-Reporter but I don't know how to add the link. Maybe someone else can.
