Great hen season!

Checked my hen trees that already produced this year, came up with another 35lbs of fresh hens. Closing in on 100lbs of hens this year. Been able to share with lots of friends that never tasted them before. Found a beautiful hen on the exposed root ball of an overturned giant oak. Good luck to all !

Don't feel bad josh. I found 2 all season! My trees were junk and I just found 2 like last weekend. Way late

Short season for me. Worst one yet.

Is anyone finding ANYTHING? I'm not. Nothing at all. Going to look tomorrow.

Re: Great hen season!

I agree! It's been pretty bad.

I did have some success with velvet feet and oysters today. Also picked a bunch of dandelions and baby nettles. I did pretty good on the velvet feet and oysters in fact. That really boosted my mushroomy moral...

I had to keep checking old oaks but only found a few old ones I didn't pick. I didn't find any that I had missed.

Any chance they will flush again?
