Way to go Bill!
The earliest I have ever found oysters
was the beginning of March one time.

Re: Winter wonder land
thanks but it drove me nuts... every time it got somewhat warm I would run out and see if I could find some more!!! but no luck. I guess the best times come when you least expect it.

Re: Winter wonder land
I've only found a couple batches of good oysters. Should I only spend my time looking on aspen trees or are there other good trees.

@ ross

We find them on Elm when the half frees are up along with Big toothed aspen. I think the ones that grow on elm actually have a better flavor. These are the standard oyster mushrooms too, not Elm oysters.

Re: Winter wonder land
The first batch I found in the area were in late oct. (11 lbs) off one tree, which was on a popular tree, dead but standing the second batch I can't say I can Identify the tree it was fallen and I was so excited I didn't look to try and Identify it. I found a bunch up in Indian River area in mid June last year and all of those were on popolar trees.
