Lots of people are saying the harvest is thin this year. Early warm weather followed by dry weather in ohio, at least.

Where is the best place to look for them? I own 40acres with a heavy wooded area, a creek that runs through it, with pasture land on the other side of it.

Circle around a standing dead elm, ash, oak or apple tree. Elm is best in my area, one that is starting to peel its bark is perfect. Hillsides or higher ground seem more productive. I've heard old abandoned orchards are good, too, along with railroad tracks. Carry a walking stick to push plants back, I swear they try to hide when they see you coming. If you find a mess of them leave some to "seed" for next year.

It is very important to leave half of what you find. The mushroom itself is just the fruiting body of a much larger organism. If you take all of the fruit (seeds) you will not have a good crop next year.
