Fall Fungi of 2017

Postby Spectoreyes on Sat Sep 16, 2017 2:48 pm

Hi all you Fungal Lovers, I am starting a new discussion for this Fall! I hope some of you all forgo Face Book and get into some nice posts here, in between hunting and finding out there!

First, I live in Central Oregon, but I have a family member in Newport area, and she found a nice few pounds of beautiful Chanterelles Yesterday! Yahoo! Bring on this supposed rain storm this coming week!

I myself, have checked some of my good ol spots, both on the Eastern side of the Cascades (Cascade lakes area, like Cultus Lake) and the Western side of the Cascades, (Santiam Pass area) and even though the forest is Dry yet, I have found some King Bolete and some nice tight Chanterelles in the amount of a good 25 pounds now! Also found Chicken of the Woods, numerous Albatrellus, like hundreds of them, some nice Amanita Muscaria, and some young Dyer's Polypores!

Ok, get to hunting, and do post some fun info here again this year, and maybe see you at the Mt Pisgah Festival!

Yours in Mushrooms

Just curious if Albatrellus pes-caprae was part of that Albatrellus hall. Many people talk about harvesting Albatrellus ellisii which tastes like abalone.
My favorite is the Albatrellus pes-caprae which reminds me of Sweet Potatoe French fries. One of my favorite mushrooms, but I find it difficult to find.

Finally, chanterelles are coming up. Not a lot, but enough for a few meals. And of course, we are gone for two weeks on a trip. Hope to get enough to put up in the freezer. Happy hunting to you all.

Many sizeable hauls of Chanterelles coming out of the Santiam and Cascade Lakes regions :D

I was hunting in the coast range the weekend of 23-24th, a spot that I go to early in the Fall season, it's always loaded with Chanties but not much of anything else. This year I found 30-40 lobster and a huge bloom of COWs. In the 10 years of hunting this spot, I've never found lobster there, so very surprising to find several large patches. Anyone else finding more lobster than usual?

Well, I just got back from the Umpqua river area, this year is the first year I went to hunt mushrooms there, found some truly Spectacular Chantrelles! I would still be there today, but a nice snowstorm blew me out of there yesterday evening! :lol:
