The wind and cold weather seems to have moved the fish I was on so I decided to go look for mushrooms today. It was well worth the walk.

Hunted morels and fished with my good friend Don on Wednesday 5/12 in the Ashley, Indiana area. The nest with eggs are killdeer.

This may have been the best season I've ever had in 55 yrs of hunting. Bumper crop and I've been picking for 5+ weeks now. Worked on the property yesterday and took a quick walk on trails to the same old spots that we have already picked hundreds from and found several more that looked like they had just came up. I'm in the Wabash area, N.e.central part of the state.

That's odd you guys had such a good shroom season. Here in north west I had one of my worst. Went one last time yesterday and found about a dozen dried up. Probably doesn't help I mostly hunt public ground and a lot of my areas got hit by the thrasher.

I have some railroad tracks that I find a bunch every year ,this year it was crazy good,north slopes were carpeted with them.I went through and picked ,then back through in a week and more popped up.I walked through one more time today and found only one.I believe itís done for the most part,if you wanted to really search the heavy overgrowth in deep in the woods you could probably find a few fresh ones.Me and ticks donít mix so Iím done

This wasn't the best mushroom year I have ever had, but it was definitely well above average for me. Been fixing all we can eat multiple times a week and I froze more than ten pounds to enjoy through the rest of the year.

Howdy sir, I freeze some of my excess mushrooms as well but sometimes with limited success. Could you share with me the process you use to freeze yours? thanks

I cut them in half length wise, clean and flower them just like I would to fry them but then layer them between sheets of waxed paper in an air tight tupperware container. When your ready to eat them, take out just what you want from the container, still frozen, and put them right into the hot skillet. I like to save some to have venison steak and mushrooms around Christmas time. Makes the winter seem a little shorter for me!

I have had good results blanching, breading, freezing on a sheet then vacuum sealing. Unfortunately I didn't find enough to freeze this year. On the positive side though, I have a freezer full of panfish and the good bite hasn't even started yet.

Hunting rooms on railroad tracks isnít the best idea in my opinion. If you ever saw how the railroad crew sprays the right of way along the tracks, you might look for a less toxic area! Just my opinion of course. Railroad Cops can also arrest you for trespassing. Iíll just hunt the woods! Hex

I stopped picking asparagus along the roadsides for that reason. Had a friend pick some that had been recently sprayed but hadn't died. He got very sick.
