Went Sunday looking for morels and sheds. Didnt find any but had a good time. I took my Win94 NRA Commemorative musket 30/30 and my 1858 Remington 44 with me.

Default It's all in da wood........

I pick my oysters from willow trees only. There are other cotton woods that they grow on...... I hear that oak grows those that are most prized......Oysters are getting harder and harder to find in south La.....Salt water and heat don't mix for a good mediam......Back in the day they fed the old folks the mushrooms first if they thought the were bad,,,,,,,,,,

I have one problem here in Tennessee! The Deer like them as well as I do and they hunt all day and night! The bad thing is Deer Season is OUT! I recently found a morel mushroom base that was 2 inches in diameter. The ground was torn up around the area. And this what I could only visualize, as a priceless morsel stub remaining was gone all but about 1/2 inch above ground level. I have always presumed that the spore was still left and it will come back someday? At least that is what some say.
D-- Deer! LOL!

The cap of the 'shroom is the fruiting body. If the cap is removed then the spore will not be distributed. I have always been told not to harvest more than half of the total 'shrooms found so that there will be spores to be distributed. The "root" that remains in the ground will grow more 'shrooms though. The huge bulk of the fungus is actually beneath the ground and can cover a great deal of area.

(this from Wikipedia) A giant Armillaria solidipes fungus, a species of honey mushroom in the Malheur National Forest in Oregon, was found to span 8.9 km2 (2,200 acres),[4] which would make it the largest organism by area. Whether or not this is an actual individual organism, however, is disputed: some tests have indicated that they have the same genetic makeup,[5] but unless its mycelia are fully connected, it is a clonal colony of numerous smaller individuals. Another clonal colony that rivals the Armillaria and the Populus colonies in size is a strand of the giant marine plant, Posidonia oceanica, discovered in the Mediterranean near the Balearic Islands. It covers a band roughly 8 km (5.0 mi) in length.
