Ah yes, one of my favorite times of the year. Rates right up there with first time mowing or first time running a plow thru the garden.
Got out to the woods to one of my favorite spost today. Where I go is on public land near a public lake in rural Kansas City, Mo. Yes, that is all you need to know about that. Good mushroom spots are hard to come by and even harder to keep secret. I usually find at least a couple dozen or more there every year after going several times each year. Mushroom season only lasts for a week or two. Kind of early here, but you never know. Just like the lottery, you don't win if you don't hunt....The tally for today was....deer antler sheds, 0 (sometimes I can find sheds in the same places I hunt for mushrooms....my dogs love to chew on them) morel mushrooms, 0 (nope, I didn't find even the first one)... ticks, 10...yep, the little buggars are thick this year!
