We finally got warmer weather but no rain, they are calling for snow again on Monday. I'm afraid its going to be a bad year for the mushrooms here. Went for a little while today and found a couple. Usually can find them like you are Matt28 but the weather hasn't cooperated yet

It was a slow start for me, but there starting to grow better now since the warm up. Got 432 for the season so far, would like to break 500. There are some people that have found over 1000 thus year so far.

Prepping for another 2 foot of snow this weekend. Don't expect them for awhile yet


Don't do anything you don't want to explain to the paramedics. I do appreciate a good story tho.

pay attention to your lilacs. when the blooms start to crack open and you can see the hint of blue the blacks should be up. once the blooms are done the season is over. i have yet to find a plant that better "brackets" the mushroom season.

Good advice.....a jingle that is kinda a joke but usually true is "When the lilacs are bloomin it's time to go shroomin"!!! Usually the nice tans are poppin around here big time. The little ones (really little sometimes) are usually before the lilacs bloom and then there are the Giants. Usually at the end of season for sure!!

never heard the lilac thing before. I'll start watching mine and see how ti goes.

when the mayapple show up (this past friday) i start to get the urge, and it seems the poplar leaves are about the size of a golf ball to palm sized when the season is really getting started. they aren't their yet.

we had good weather saturday, but it turned colder sunday, colder still today....and again tomorrow. then some warmer temps.

All I can say is yummmmmmm....hopefully we have a season here in Michigan if the snow ever leaves...


Thought I was a good trapper until I started trapping coyotes......
Thought I was a good bowhunter until I targeted mature bucks....

That has been my results too.45 years of chasing schrooms and a gray is a gray.

A gray is an immature yellow. Cover it and give it time to mature (yellow in color).

I'm no expert on shrooms but we always find the grays a couple weeks before we get any of the big yellows. I always pick the black ones then a couple weeks later go back and find the yellow ones. I'm not saying they are not immature yellows but always seemed like they were different. I left some in a burn out last year to see if they would grow but they never did, but the weather turned warm and dry so that may be why

Yup. I've got a few spots where I practice quality mushroom management on. Grays are just immature mushrooms and will grow into yellows given the right moisture. Blacks are a different species.
