Unhappy Re: Rakers

I'e seen the results of raking frequently in the most famous of all N.W. MI hunting grounds, but I've never actually caught somebody doing it. My philosophy is that if a shroom isn't big enough to show itself (or at least make a nice pup-tent in the leaf cover), then it isn't worth picking just yet. It also seems like a damn waste of time to me, just to uncover a few microscopic shrooms that don't add much to bag or belly. So if you want to waste your time on this activity instead of moving on to harvest another section, then go for it. Just remember to be embarrassed if you get caught, because you ought to be!

Re: Rakers

Hunting with rakes is about as sporting as fishing with dynamite, if you feel you have to hunt with a rake, please stay home.

Re: Rakers

I hit my spots yesterday and EVERY ash tree in the area had been raked, Never seen this there before,and the really silly thing is when I walked the outer edge of the raked areas there were shrooms just laying around the edges that they flung and did not see, I got at least 25 like that. Another thing is why do people need to leave trails of hunter orange PLASTIC ribbons tied around trees DIRECTLY to each tree ??? I filled all my pants pockets with plastic ribbons yesterday. Ended up with 109 whites 12 half frees and 10 fresh browns, Need rain BAD!!!!!! doesn't look like it's coming though. Happy hunting!!! Matt

Re: Rakers

Yeah it wasn't hunters, Those ribbons were not there a week ago !!! And they were trails leading directly to ash trees.
