It seems that some grow on dead ash stumps. One on a log was pretty big!

Best to eat when small. About 2-3 inches across.

Re: Pheasantbacks

Jochs when we were in Manistee on monday i found a stump like this with a couple mushrooms growing on them. (I'm not sure exactly what they were.) But they looked similar to this and I thought we better move on because clearly you have already hunted that area. :)

Re: Pheasantbacks

I came across a vehicle on Saturday that had Indiana plates, and the dealership was Warsaw-Goshen. I was in the Harrietta Hills, and managed to not get lost this time.
About 30 years ago, my parents and I walked in on a two-track and walked out on the wrong one, eventually getting driven back to our motorhome by some other hunters. I knew that when I came to a two-track after leaving the one going in, that it was a different one that I had came in on, and followed it to the right road. That was when I saw the suv from Northern IN. Was that you or perhaps Big Amish?
I only found 2 there. Before all the ash trees died, that area was one of the best in Wexford Co. for yellows IMHO.

The mushrooms on the stump are in the Harrietta Hills, the log mushrooms were found in the rolling hills near Caberfae. I won't get too specific though on where I was, as I found some trampled morels and morel stumps near the log ;).

Re: Pheasantbacks

No it wasn't us. We didn't make it up until Sunday and Monday. I had to work Friday and Saturday. We also ran into a couple people from Bristol IN which is pretty close to Goshen. They were in a white SUV. We hunt in the Boon area. We also realized we were about 3-4 days too late. We still did ok but found lots of areas with 50-75 stems around that people had already picked the gold from...
