Re: Next mushroom on the list....

I have no experience in chants whatsoever. Just want to learn and have a good time. Im willing to go wherever. Jon you know I'm open to trips up north lol but probably down state would be better. Just whatever you guys think. Oak is the key, yes? Plenty of land. Let's do this

Re: Next mushroom on the list....

Brad, look for the most mature maples you can find. They often drop lower limbs, and when the limbs are freshly fallen, they will have oysters for a couple years to come. Usually see them in the next week or two.

As for the chants... I can try and locate a spot on some unexplored ground that maybe we can all meet up. The key for me and golden chants is mature trees. The bigger oaks you can get into, the better they are. The younger trees (12 in and less) generally have very low numbers for my spots, if any at all. The larger oaks create the "oak openings"... and well you know...

It's fine i appreciate the help... I have been hunting morels for years with my grandparents and now they are pretty much gone and im all grown up and figured I would explore some other fungus outside of morels. So this weekend I will go find some old maple trees and see what I can come up with.

Im not sure that we have many wild cherry trees down here... the soil is quite different here than in MI. For the maple trees though would one look for the branches that have fallen to the ground, or at the trees that have dropped the branches?

Re: Next mushroom on the list....

the branches that have fallen to the ground are what you're looking for... especially if it was broken off from a storm last year. also if you have a forest that is thick with maple and trees are young ones are dying from being choked out by the bigger ones, you would find them on the dead young ones as well. that is how the BTA oysters function basically.

Plus the limbs on the ground are guaranteed to be pickable... If the smaller dead maples work like the dead aspens do, that can be harder. The poplar oysters can frustrate you when they're growing 40 ft up a dead tree lol.

I have a spot in my mind I'd check for the maple oysters if I didn't have so many poplar oysters already. But we should definitely figure this chanterelle trip out. Blake I think you have my number. Get a hold of me sometime if you want to do a little scouting together. I do have a place or two in mind that might be about equal drive for both of us.
