I thought that FLUSH is what you do with wormies... Or what the Joe's do to the price as soon as there is quantity.... Or what a picker does when the price is below $10

I am looking for a Chantrelle buyer. I live in the Albany OR area and plan on looking and finding some chantrelle mushrooms soon as they start popping up, I would like to find a buyer before so that we can get into contact and talk first. Any help is appreciated! Thanks

flush in anahiem , lower prices why? come on it isnt the emporers birthday. why do they expect those people will pick for them for nothing. pickers must unite and get shrooms to market themselves. it may take teamwork but the market is there. stay safe pick lots

Prices dropping in the North. According to buyers, there's a flush in Anaheim? Anyone know if that's accurate. Sounds like the Joe's are in trouble which is great news for prices! Other buyers stepped up and knocked 'em down. Mushrooms are still slow in the Nass/Skeena. Hoping to finally find something in my patch this weekend. Only making $50 a trip lately which pretty much covers fuel.

We are experiencing the second flush in Iskut country. Warm weather permitted larvae to destroy about half the 2's and 3's, but the 1's are solid. New buttons coming 3-4 days after the first walkthrough. Some good temperature swings now. 5mm rain in last two days; not much, but it'll soften the ground for more breakthroughs.

Lobo Sorry to hear about this... Although I have never met Carla, I have enjoyed reading her post here on Matsiman..... Will be thinking of her and praying for her.... Looks like the risk for this type of operation is quite low..... But the downside is the long recovery time..... Maybe you could keep us updated. I for one would be interested to hear how Carla is doing.

Did a mini circle tour of the big mountain today...central Islanders will know where I mean...a few big patches of very parched and tiny chanties is all I can report on the mushroom front, but wow, what an amazing bumper crop of high bush raspberries. Never seen anything like it actually. I remember Kieth Hunter asked me one time why I felt no one was picking them and I responded quickly that was because there just wasn't enough of them to make it worthwhile...well anyway, it seems they are just like everything else...it just depends on the year. I picked 20or so lbs of them out there today and that was just cherry picking the close to the road stuff. There are thousands and thousands of pounds of 'em up the Cameron if anyone in the Port Alberni area is interested. Watch out for the bears though, they're all over them right now. Never seen so much purple bear shit in all my life.

Anyone know anything about caterpillar fungus? Apparently it is Cordyceps sinensis. It grows out of the insects head mainly caterpillars in Tiber but I know it grows from other insects heads that start out as larvae like ants. I guess it is selling for 800 dollars an ounce in New York Japan and China? Is anyone aware of these growing in the northwest. I think these things are worth more than most prized Truffles not to mention Matsi's

@ Mushroomman...... prices are at $20/lb although there are still no mushrooms. I overheard a buyer bantering with a picker the other day asking for $100/lb He told her "sure......I'll pay $100.....I STILL won't have any mushrooms at the end of the day" LOL. The first crop went through and it was dry and hot as hell so it came up 99% wormy. The heat wave has pretty much made more growth non-existent. I'll head out again Sunday and see what it looks like out there. Impatiently waiting.......

Thanks Chankeen for the update, You are correct, if you can go, go for the experience. We went 7 times and every time was awesome. The main activityfor shrooms was in the Skidegate lake area. (Stay away from 9 mile unless you like to party.) I understand a lot of the area around there has been heavily logged. We went all over the islands, Grey bay, out to the west coast Masset to name a few..... The people there are great, must say I miss not going..... But it is the economics sadly. Bella, if you can swing it make it a point to go, just for the experience. BTW... the fishing is otta' sight.... You should be there right now, their season must be close to starting.

Its been years since there has been a couple hundred people go to Haida Gwaii for the shanties. These days, more like a couple dozen (if that) There generally is one buyer, though prices often are only $1 or $2 a pound, sometimes the buyer is shut down as well. Some people do make money. Usually its the ones that have their own market, and don't depend on the main buyers. That said, the salmon run is incredible, steel-heads come in during the season, and deer are abundant. Go if looking for vacation, not to earn $ --remember it is expensive to get there, and expensive to be there... Yea the main area is around Skidegate Lake, most people camp in the forests, so you wont see anything on google earth about that. Only a couple small clearing overall. I'll see ya there if you go!

thanks Boletus Joe. I herd it's outside Sandspit, down by Skidegate Lake. I looked at it on google, and I don't see much for clearings to put up the couple hundred fokls who are sposed to be goin there every year. they talk thousands of kilos coming outa there. I just got family comin in to town, and we wanted to do a big trip for the fall, get in some meat and fishin, and mabe have some fun pickin mushies. every couple years we get together. we done cranberry 10 years ago an bowron lakes 6 years ago an the morels in the spring, whenever we can all get may off work together. thats like every couple years. we seen mosta BC like that, and some of the yukon. paid for a few trips an the new camper with mushies an berries over the years. but yah, the buyers arent aroun like they use to be. we pick whatever we find, and keep a lot for our bellies an canning. ok. thats it for me. where we go, i'll let ya all know whats goin on.

I understand that there are no buyers on Haida Gwaii, because of the cost of shipping.... I may have that wrong, but I suppose if you dry them it might pay in the long run. I would like to know the RIGHT answer to this question as well...... You should really get all your info right before going over there..... unless, of course, you already live there..... Shroomin' just ain't what it use to be....

$8 For chanties right now? Given that there is virtually no weight being produced anywhere on the continent, and my chefs and the general public screaming for them in a small (tiny really) market the price should be much higher then even that. Like isabell said, there's not enough product to discuss bulk rates.... I'm thinking I'll take $400 for an 8 kilo basket. I know my customers at my farmers market will gladly pay that rate... Or more. Don't sell yourself short.

@ cranberrydawg....... The Cranberry is a desert right now. It isn't worth going out to pick locally let alone travelling from afar. The Wife and I went out Sunday and made our gas money back with all of 2 lbs for a full day of picking. Our buyer said everyone is coming in with the same story. The only thing seeming to grow right now is Chicken of the Woods if you have spots for it.

If anyone would like to give a REAL update on the Cranberry if it comes, I would genuinely appreciate it. Thinking of hitting some of my old haunts this year, but of course I don't want to waste my time or money on the long trip from the Island. As for the central Island all I see is falling boundary ribbon. No chanties yet, but sick amounts of ribbon. And sorry Island Timberlines, you'll have to send more surveyors out there, them damn ribbons all blew down. Hi Zed.

hi gotta pick, only the earliest spots, and the dampest are showing anything at the first few hundred feet above sea level. and by anything, I mean a few chanty buttons. I have absolutely no idea about anything higher than 300-400 ft., and no idea north of Duncan. not yet. :) Keep on looking for the rare white Boletus barrowsii in suburban areas, and around garry oaks. might still be a few popping here and there. We need good fogs to roll in, or some really heavy dews, I'd say, if not rain. I would love to know what's happening in the subalpine, but don't have time till September. good luck!

hey garf, nice to hear from you. only go to your typically earliest places, unless you're scoping out new territory. There's a new cut-block just got opened up in my neck of the woods, and it looks promising, if they don't get in there with the machines too quickly. I can't believe how fast these guys are operating right now. How are the logging conditions up there these days? and, on another note, are you a hand-splitter, or have a firewood processor? Do you know which logging companies on VI have firewood permits available, and if any are open to having big-time firewood and mulch salvagers come in, with their own trucks, machines and processors? Or who I should talk to about that? thanks! good luck!

I see many photos of mushroom pickers with the wrong knife in hand. About 7 years ago I had a Cougar ready to punce on me from 12 feet. I had the wrong knife ( a fillet knife for Chantys). Had I had to defend myself surely I would have seriously injured my fighting hand with no protection from the blade. The next day I bought a Bowie style knife with a strong blade and a complete brass ring. I hqve never carried bear spray in the past but may consider it these days. cheers, C

hey gang, I'm noticing some disbelief here. i can tell you that some people are experiencing the best porcini pick of their short picking careers in CO and OR right now, because they are in just the right places, and have found some great spots, that are producing early, while others are struggling to find some because their favourite spots are still a little dry and warm, if not hot, and the rains haven't come yet. also, the guys in the Nass all know how long the river is, and that there are indeed pockets that flush early, and some later, depending on exposure and tree species, and how well you know the areas around there will help you in your hunt. What we really need on here is some info on the prices being paid and where, and if there are any chefs or restaurant owners on here, who want to buy some shrooms when they start coming ready. Congrats to the pickers who have their buyers - both private and commercial - and restaurants lined up before the season starts, and their prices secured. :) And those are just the culinary fungi. Are there any buyers on here looking for the species for dying? Or medicinal reishi and chaga? This site is North American, and there are users on here from AB, SK, MB and ON, I know, as well. It's great to see the fruit and greens pickers on here as well - we're all in the same club. I hope the season is awesome and long. Full buckets!

jtorell, The huckleberries are ripe around mt. Adams and Mt. St. Helens. If you have someone to buy, they are thick this year. Blackberries are also thick and ripe in the lower elevations. You won't find alot of mushrooms this time of year. The red caps may be out. Maybe a few chantrelles. But the buyers won't even be set up in Randle until early sept. And that may be early. They don't set up until the mushroom season is really going gangbusters. So unless you have a buyer lined up, you won't make money. Sorry........

hey garf, the first first chanties were found in the last little while on VI, so, you have good timing for your fishing trip, to take some time to go for a wander with a basket. prolly no $, but enough for a dinner or two, and a breaky. :) have a good season!

Hi, wondering if anyone has picked huckleberries/mushrooms in the Randle, WA area this time of year and if realistically would make more than just gas money? Trying to figure out a way to make some money for my kids, before school starts. Thanks.

Hey GunJumper , if you have not sold those chanties and if they are of good , I may be interested on taking some of your hands , you need to air freight them [on my account ] though , also if anyone comes into fresh young chicken of the woods I'll be very interested on buying it , it has to be at least 30 or 40 pounds of fresh chickens, to make it worthwhile .http://www.forestharvest.com/

That was me for many years, always jumping-the-gun each spring in my elusive search for the first Oregon morels and always late for the Crescent Lake Junction party, bummer. But this year, right on time for perhaps one of the biggest Chanterelle harvests ever, well at least to me.
