Does anyone go to the mushroom festivals? We are looking at Lewiston or Mesick as we have never been to one and wondered what others thought of them. We plan on camping in the National Forest and hunting while we are there another thing we have never down, we usually just hunt around home in the mitten

Re: Festivals

Went to the Boyne City festival a few years ago. Big festival for such a small town.

I've stopped by the Mesick during the Mushroom Festival a couple of times. I've never actually gone to the festival.
At Ellen's Corners in Mesick, during the festival, people are often there selling morels they have picked locally. But beware of some people who think they have morels but actually have verpas.
Others will have verpas and refer to them as "caps."

Re: Festivals

I usually plan to hunt at least 50 miles from the nearest festival, although I did pass through Mesick about 30 years ago while the festival was going on, as I was traveling between one spot and another. I stopped briefly to check it out. It was a late year, so there were not that many mushrooms up yet, but it looked like folks were having a good time. I was heading back South in hopes that more mushrooms would be up in that direction, as I recall...

Just a few...
