Black Trumpets

One of my favorite things about this web site, is the friends that you make over the years. While I'm not as active on here as much as I used to be. I sure have made some life long friendships.

This is a picture of some Black Trumpets and what I suspected to be a King. I got together with my friend George "Happy Trails" today, along with my kids and went for a walk. A pretty nice haul to say the least.

Best part is. My kids. 8 and 10 yrs old, like to hang out with George, and have a passion for Mushrooms as I do.

Thanks to Frank and Debbie for the Autobon book of Mushrooms sent to me years ago and sparked my interest in the "others".

Thanks again to Miker, George, JustaPickin, Jon, and Rosevelt, and all the others here, for all the knowledge shared over the years.

By the way.... The Bolete upon further inspection was a Bitter..
But George and I along with my kids are going after some Sweetooths.. "Hedgehogs" on Monday... What a guy!! He shows alot of his good hunting spots, so I can enjoy them with my family and friends for years to come..

Re: Black Trumpets

Nice find! Too bad about the bolete. Found our first black trumpets ever this year. Was pretty cool. Nice to have a good friend share his secret hunting spots and to have your kids share in the hobby. happy hunting

Re: Black Trumpets

What kind of environment did you find the trumpets? And what part of the state?

For the benefit of those who don't have an Audubon Guide, I read in my Guide that this can be found in oak and beech woods, and other deciduous trees---look for it along paths in oak and beech woods, and it is often smelled long before it is seen, with a fruity fragrance.

Hey Maple River is the date on your photos of the trumpets right? I want to know if I can still find them. I have found pounds of golds and the cinnabars but no trumpets yet. I am hoping I can still find some.

Re: Black Trumpets

Hey Tharwood

For what it's worth... the trumpets that we found this year were from 7/1 through 7/13. I would echo what maple river salmon said. These were within 100 ft of a swamp/ bog. Moss was always involved.
Haven't seen anything recently. I did read that they need HEAVY rain to fruit. Like we had in mid june. We had a TON of rain. Happy hunting.

All the ones gathered by me were in Rest Area/ Parks.... But ALL found in Mossy terrain with little or no grass. I do believe that they need a good amount of moisture to fruit.
