Found tight fresh lobsters,to my my surprise I found mushrooms with teeth ,Hedgehogs?Never tried these before , does anyone know about these beige toothed mushrooms smells a apricot type smell round slightly wavy,grows in west kootenays?I will consult a local mushroom guru about this mushroom's edibility before tasteing.Also checked one my local secret matsutake patches and found a half dozen pine mushrooms , gave them the squeeze and the stems were soft so I left them.Not bad for a walk with the dogs 20 mins from our house!Lobster mushroom omelette tomorrow morning , eat your profits its the only way you get your fair share!

Fosthall is a great hot spot for shrooms although a bit of a trek to get there ! Always nice if you have a boat and a mountain bike , nice to spend a few or more days up there to make it worth your time. Eat your profits only way you get your fair share.

Hey guys , took me a minute but I found that mushroom buyer ad. Olympic peninsula, Aberdeen I hate the new text "language" but I'll say right here OMG. I mean are they for real? Maybe it's joke. But then again there are still real hillbilly's in the mountains here and there. Or I guess it could be a legit mushroom buying company fishing to see how cheap they might get some. I don't know the ad is just so ridiculous looking, who does that? And they think it will work? Really? We'll I'm off now for the last weekend of summer party with gang so catch you all later and good shroom hunting this fall everybody!

As a lifelong treasure hunter and forager I love the hunt. I hunt for cool junk at flea markets, clothes at thrift stores, tasty food and other goodies at divey bars :) , gather my own seafood in the sound and berries in the forests as well as mushrooms. the last few years I have taken a real liking to Lobster mushrooms. Few people realize how delicious they are in all kinds of dishes! I try to get my own but will buy or trade from friends on occasion. I don't have any desire to spend my free time foraging just to sell my finds for next to nothing in the commercial market as I feel it's way too much work for basically no money if you sell them.

Keith and El Diablo - Those aren't real mushroom buyers. Not in the professional sense anyway. No, they just try to capitalize on anyone they can for a fast, work free buck. Who's to say after bashing anyone who tries to sell on craigs list they aren't the ones trying to buy dirt cheap and then trying to sell high on there? No folks, the REAL FIELD BUYERS I deal with are fair mostly honest people and pay the market, not dirt bag opportunistic lowballers.

I guess it is getting to be that time of year again. Had two really wet days here in the 'Couv. Not so great for those growing medicine up North but sure will be a significant boost for shroom production up in the woods. At this time, it doesn't look like I'll be getting up there anytime soon but I suppose everything happens for a reason. And you never know, the more you look for something, the more elusive it sometimes becomes. So I guess it's time to quit worrying, stop hurrying, and just let it ride. Good things come to those who wait. In the meantime, as always, full buckets....if you can't find what your looking for up there, pick up garbage instead. There is plenty of that all over the place. Matsigurl! (Remember one of my best days picking started out with me filling my buckets with left behind camper/hunter trash)

hey ya'll! Hiked into a logging road yesterday. Hot and muggy, a heck of a hike! But came out with 4 1/2 pounds of Chanties! Found two old lobsters also in a area I've never seen them before. Left many buttons behind to "grow up". :) If this keeps up, it will be a bountiful year to make up for the last two! I only walked thru a part of my patches. Took so darn long to hike in! Be glad when hunting season is here and they open the gates. Oh, and for those of you who don't know, I live in Western Washington. Full buckets to ya'll!

I'm sure many people who have spent some time in the woods have noticed the difference between old logging and modern logging's impact on the forest floor. And how that translates to mushroom growth now and in the future. I just surveyed and area of 30 yr old clearcut and doug fir replant that had been scraped and burned after cutting. The ground is bare to clay with no topsoil left and no mushrooms grow there while in the next block over, an old pre 1950's clearcut that has regrown some beautiful second growth has thick healthy topsoil and a dynamic living ecosystem in it including mushrooms. The old time logging was much less destructive especially to the ash layer and the duff layer. Modern logging has destroyed the ash layer in most places it has been done, and usually renders the duff layer or forest topsoil dead or exposed to erosion and severely damaged. Many understand this and the long term impact on everything else, including fish and their spawning beds. I would just like to see science restored to its rightful place in the decision making process with regards to use of the forest. No more bunk science or this ridiculous heysus is coming so we can just go ahead and just trash everything crap. We know what works and what doesn't long term at this point so lets behave accordingly. Lets end the era of environmental destruction for private profit. It's really quite irresponsible and very inconsiderate to the people of the future.

Franet, Thank You for the good news and thank God that they are safe, it is very upsetting and sad to hear they were left alone like that. What i understood butch had everything under control from moving his camp out and a ride down to the zoo. If he would have stuck to the original plan things may have worked out for them. Anyways once again thank you so very much for the great news. PS people are still looking for them at the morel patch right now, so get them to call the RCMP in Dease Lake, BC to report they are safe.

Lolly, Its the same here. The number of commercial pickers is down maybe 75% in the last 15 yrs. Even the Asians we used to see in huge hoards have gone way down maybe they all work at nail salons now, I dunno. And the Illegals from down south have either been rounded up and sent home or are too scared and cant get a permit or their gainfully employed in something else. I will say though college age kids, 20 somethings, think mushroom hunting is cool and the last few years I see more and more of them either trying to make some money or trying to get some to eat. Never thought I'd see that happen.

I don't know about down south in the U.S. but up here in Canada there's maybe one in ten mushroom pickers left compared to back in the 90's. Prices crashes for the pines and most people had to get regular jobs. Betcha it reduced the amount of commercial pickers by 90 percent.

And especially don't tell mushroom buyers where your patches are! Buyers depend on, and make their money off you the picker and need volume for their formula to work. If you tell a buyer where your getting your shrooms they can send pickers to the area who can clean you out in a hurry!

By reliable estimates only about 5 percent of the old growth forests remain in the US. Five friggin percent. That's all we got left. All the high production logging of the last 60 years was based on bunk science and fictious long term sustainability estimates. Now we have global warming and wildfires to factor into the big picture as well. This is about mushrooms all right and everything else too. We really need to get back in touch with the real reality, not this fake one we been living in and eventually the earth will heal.

I agree with you Bonfer. One of the major obstacles we face and our childrens children face is the armageddonists and Doomsdayers, you know the type - zombie apocolipse, bunker people etc... They actually think the world is coming to an end so it doesn't matter what people do. Or heysus is coming to wisk us all away just before the final disaster or some similar nonsence. Its been terribly irresponsible and the worst part is we know better. The people most responsible for the damage that is yet to show will be long gone by the time the results really begin to manifest themselves. A epic and unprecented tragedy in the history of the world and the people who live to see it and adjust to it will have to deal with the consequences and the mess. All the various elements of this make it the absolute worst disaster in history and some still thumb their nose at us all in the name of making more money or gaining more power for themselves.

In indirectly related to mushrooms news and I hope this is ok to post, I hear a few of those the clueless politicians in Oregon think it's a good idea to gear up for another round of "sustainable" logging. OMG!. What is wrong with these people? Seriously! The forest just now barely begins to recover from a half century of mechanized destruction-logging complete with power chainsaws and along comes some "#@!..ing hack policicos who are gonna try to "help" the economy and "create" a few jobs while in the process making himself look like the hero. We really need to nip this in the bud this time. Call or Write your congressman now. It looks like they have even wrangled defazzio into their bs, I cant believe it! People we CANNOT continue to "make jobs" are "create economic activity" and so called "growth" from trashing the world we live on. We need to start being smart and responsible. Not short term self interested thinkers. The old industrial economy model is dead or dying, in part to the end of cheap energy used to power the model for the last 150 years. Oil. It's over. Now for the sake of people and the environment everywhere that we are all entirely dependant on can we please move into the future and stop this madness by those who think dragging us back to the past is the way foreward?!

I like the way the usfs has closed off a lot of roads to vehicle traffic it keeps the city people that trash the woods out. Cuts down on wildlife harassment and garbage dumping and meth cooking too I heard although I just saw on the natgeo channel where 90% of all the meth in the US comes from mexico. Who knew? I never really thought people were making that crap out in the woods anyway but it was a good excuse to close down roads, so whatever. Keeps all other traffic out too but its not really a barrier to getting to the mushrooms if you can get around by other means. I suppose it sucks for old people though. You all know the price of pines is always gonna be 2-20 dollars a pound right? I mean its been that way for a long time now and with other places in the world producing too it looks to be that way from now on.

It's not the country folk or locals I worry about so much when out mushroom hunting during the deer-elk seasons but the big city people that have their yearly "get loaded and get stupid" vacation hunting parties in the woods. You can blame it on todays people or "them damn kids" if you like but its always been this way as long as I can remember. I have to wait till they clear out of one area in my favorite woods so I can go look for shrooms. They get drunk, shoot up everything - road signs, any living thing they see, leave shot up bottles, broken glass and garbage everywhere and seem to think getting yourself and all your gear bedding etc as dirty as you can and living and acting like pigs for a week or two is neat. And no it's not a "man" thing. It's an idiot thing.

Here's my yearly heads up folks; Deer season is coming up or already started in many western states. First bow then gun. I hate it since it overlaps mushroom season. Used to pride myself on how much or whatever critters I killed when I was a young man then after killing lots of people in nam, once I got home and sane again, more or less, from that shit I realized I'd had my fill of killing. Haven't shot a single critter in over 40 years not even a rabbit. Cant find a good reason to. I guess you could say I grew up and got balance and learned to live in harmony with the rest of the world and haven't regretted it one bit. I hate hunting season as it messes with and scares the deer and elk and mushroom hunters too. Be safe out there everybody.

Treeguy; that is fantastic. I never even thought about the market on granville island. also I would have thought selling to a resturant would require more credentials. but i think that is the very best place to do it. there are great local resturants here in the lower mainland.

yep! vern summed it up but what a hell of a two months ride eh! gotta love the fungi fever! also, be very creative with those shrooms as they have high culinary value. many people are moving too fast and do not take the time out to cook healthy organic wild meals. ...prep. package and sell/ value added ideas are endless.

Usually Nakusp starts in early September , helps to have a few frosts to slow down the bugs , elevation p,ays a role with that factor.Chanties usually come first, the pines.ShOwers in the forecast could be a good season! Eat your profits it's he only way you get your fair share

I totally agree with you Vern. It's a fun part time gig if the weathers right. And It hasn't been right for a couple seasons now out west. I bet the number of people who try to pick commercially has dropped 50% - 75% as a result of unfavorable weather and low prices. You just cant wait for the weather to get just right to make a living. Ask your landlord or bank or credit card co. to wait for payment till you get a good mushroom season or two under your belt to send them some money and see what they say! ha!

Well said .... Vern, Well said. Sadly there are always those that think otherwise. and I suppose that is based on all the stories from the glory days of mushroom lore. Do it if you like it, but not for a living. It's very much like gold mining except that gold fetches a far better price...... Have a fun season everyone..... OH and hello to Garf, just over the mountain from me..... Channies are starting to come on

Howdy, I read the comments on here but have only posted myself once before. I see there is a lot of talk about prices so here's my two cents. I've picked mushrooms since the 70's and sometimes sell them. Fact is with the collapse in the matsutake price some years ago there really isn't much money in picking and selling mushrooms. I watched the pines go from 20 buck a pound to 300 plus and then crash to a few dollars a pound. And that's a crash you could put on a chart and it would shock anybody. As far as a regular thing goes mushroom picking aint. You cant feed your kids or pay your bills on a few months a year meager income and that's a good year. No, the best pickers do ok sometimes and everybody else makes little more than expenses, maybe. And that applies to all mushrooms even morels. A good picker can maker a few grand in a month or two in a really good season but then has 10 months left out of a year where he's gotta eat and if you like to live indoors that's costs money too. I'm not trying to be a drag just stating the facts. This mushroom picking thing is a fun hobby that is maybe a little bit profitable sometimes for some people. That's it. And even the really good pro mushroom hunters do other stuff the rest of the year for their income. You cant get by any other way. Some trap, others fish, cut firewood or whatever but nobody makes a living on just mushrooms.

most of the ads on there are pre-order. they don't actualy have the mushrooms now. I agree the gas is a prob. how can you spend 30-40$ for gas and a whole day working at it and come out ahead if you sell you find for 30-40$ ?. Youd evenbe better off at min wage than working for nothing!

Well, I may have to revise my mushroom pickin plans and buy some from a seller on craigslist too. Wa and Or are both very dry most places and with the price of gas I cant see running all over trying to find some. This is a game for the young for the most part, running up and down the hills for miles don't sound like as much fun as it used to.

Yeah, I wanna make it clear I'd sell to somebody who was buying on craigslist to as long as they were legit. No problem. I'd buy from somebody there too if I wanted big quantity or if I couldn't get a certain kind get myself. We bought some morels off there last spring cause the season was short and not too good around here and I couldn't get the time to go myself. And they were super. Good quality and fresh.

Hello all. Hope all are well and excited about this season. A word of warning to anyone coming up to NW BC to pick this year. (Cranberry and surrounding area) The entire area is under Radio Control for construction of the Northwest Transmission Line. You MUST have a radio capable of tuning into their frequencies or they will not allow you on the roads. Also, you may just find your favorite patch is gone :( 5 of my spots were hit and there's not much left to be excited about for this region. Just thought I would give those of you that travel up this way a heads up.

I should have made it clear the ads I'm talking about are the ones with no name, ph # or price listed they just say something like; Buying mushrooms or whatever and then expect you to email them and provide them with whatever information the seek, I assume.

Also an impression I've gotten from a few ads once in a while and maybe I'm wrong about this but then again maybe not, is that they aren't really buying mushrooms at all. Just fishing for when anybody answers their ad so they can get a read on if, or where the mushrooms are popping and maybe how cheap they could get them, if they were actually buying. I've even considered a company might place an ad offering to buy chantrelles just to see how cheap people would sell them for or they could use their field buyer to hthen say "Oh, there's ads on craigslist that are only buying or selling for x amount so we can only pay x amount. When the real intent is to try to give the impression the market is softer and demand is much less than it really is.....Am I just Paranoid? Maybe. But the whole business is fraught with speculation and risk and like most business there's the good and the bad. So you need good people skills and judgement for sure.

Hey folks! regarding the discussion below about mushrooms on craigslist - Here's a cautionary story for anyone considering buying from, rather than selling to, somebody there - Several years ago just before the fall mushroom season started I broke my leg in a bike wreck and had to buy mushrooms for the first time ever. I just wanted some chanties and lobsters to dry for winter use. Getting some off craigslist seemed easy enough.......until I realized the people I tried to get with who were offering to sell didn't actually have the mushrooms right now, They had to go pick them. Ok fine. But then they never called me back. This happened with three different people and one actually said when I called again that he forgot and sold them to somebody else. Huh? I had a big order and he forgot? But it worked out ok actually because the fourth people I called were like no problem and no hassle people and they had the delivery to me in two days. Brand new picked, top quality, clean and delicious, just like if I had picked them myself. So anyhow it can work fine if your buying on craigslist but like anyplace else your dealing with individual people the results can vary.

Yes woody that's exactly right. Any ad that says they buy mushrooms that doesn't have a name/phone number and price listed in the ad should be ignored. And really, if your buying mushrooms why wouldn't you put that info in your ad?


User_Name: Woody

Any ad on craigslist that's wanting to buy mushrooms should have at a minimum: Their name or company name, phone number or at least email or text and what kind of mushrooms they'r buying and how much they're paying. The buy price can and often does change, sometimes daily but they can easily update the ad to reflect that. Or you can call them to find out the current price. STAY AWAY FROM ANY AD THAT DOESNT HAVE THIS INFORMATION POSTED IN THE AD! Because you don't need to share any personal information with anybody that doesn't need it. Period. And theres all kindS of fishing going on buy all kinds of people for all kinds of reasons.

We've seen lots of ads on craigslist wanting to buy or sell shrooms over the last few years. Some even ask who and/or where you are and how much you want for your shrooms without identifying themselves. I think that's very strange because if your buying them don't you know how much your paying? And anytime you email somebody without protection like an anonomizer they can pretty well figure where and maybe even who you are, so we never do that.

PS - If you sell the mushrooms you've harvested to a commercial buyer (A Field Buyer set up at a gas station, old store front, or the roadside, OR you sell to an in town Buyer who buys out of his house or shop) Be very careful about disclosing any information not related to the transaction at hand - For example - the specific location of the area where you found the mushrooms. In other words DONT TELL THEM ! These buyers interest is in accumulating as many pounds of mushrooms as they can (usually as cheaply as possibly) Not in protecting the secrecy your patch from other pickers! Also, be sure to check around to see if the offer you receive from the buyer is close to the market price at the time you sell. Some pay more, others less. Some field buyers are total snakes to be avoided and others are straight up righteous people who pay fair market prices. Figuring out which is which right away makes a lot of difference in how much your paid for your hard work!

Just a reminder people - DO NOT divulge the location of any mushroom patches in a public forum. EVER! There are also those fishing for information by placing ads on creagslist. Be smart, keep the location of your patches and your harvest quantity information to yourself.

new :), Depending on where you are in the PNW, there are clubs that you can join. I belong to the south sound mushroom club, based out of Olympia. We go on forays, have informative meetings, and even do weekend camping/foray trips. There are several clubs. Do a little googling to find a local club in your area! A club is a wonderful way to learn more about mushrooms, and their environment. And there are people with you that know about them. Full buckets to ya'll!

Hi, I recently found this board... Love reading all the post, I have hunted Shaggy Manes for a couple years and this year was my first for Morels. Now I'm hooked. My friend got me started. Now we both want to learn about all kinds of edible mushrooms, Yesterday we hiked all over (live in PNW) I'm sure we found Boletes but were to scared to pick them or eat them (were novices). Any help would be appreciated. Like sending a pix for anyone to help verify??? We have lots of books and read and review pix.... but when it comes down to just pulling mushrooms out of the ground to eat , I want to be careful. We did sign up for a class in mid September, but well... I hate to wait that long Any and all help Appreciated...

Matsiman - In an effort o help you get an open and legitimate discussion board the fact that one of your users was using multiple names was pointed out to you. I wondered if you were aware of this fact at first. Now I know you are aware of it and may or may not have been for some time. Its clear at this point you intend to let the fraud poster continue, unaffected and unrestrained. Your only response has been to "rein in" legimate other parties. Therefore your board is not legitimate and seves no practical use. I have no further need to post here. Be advised other have been made aware of the circumstances here. You may want to re-think your priorities. Is this a board for an old man to ply his charade and spin tales and discuss his health problems? Or is it a mushroom discussion board?

Thanks for the offers of funding for a registered board both on the board and in email. I'm going to test a registered board to see if I can build it myself. Not sure I can. If I can't, my server has offered help, but has little time for the project. Don't have any idea of the costs. I hope it's nothing.

matsiman; I am willing to help finance registered boards, they do not stop all of the foul-mouth crap and name calling of some but at least you will have more control. It has been a bum season thus far with the neuropathy happenings and there were two different medical opinions today at the VA Clinic as to if I can go back on the road or not. I do hope to salvage some of the season and get into the water for some yellow metal within a month if the foot heals enough. Until then I will be doing some dry-land photo research and recon.

hello prospective direct sellers, just a few thoughts, as the season begins: good on you for getting ahead of the curve, and organizing your buyers ahead of time. Always have a few extra than you think you need, as there will always be the one that doesn't need any mushrooms today or tomorrow, but how about next weekend, right. Also, when searching out restaurants to sell direct to, and you are googling, make sure to contact first the guys who specialize in, and market the fact that, local foods are their thing. Then the high end restaus, and then the ones that you think would be interested. Another good option when searching out buyers, is to think about farm markets. There may be one or more vege or fruit vendors who will be good with the perishable nature of the product, and be happy to augment their table with a few pounds of fresh mushrooms. Many of these markets are on weekends. So, it could even be a great place for you to go and sell, really direct to the customer. They love to see the people who pick the shrooms, and talk to you about them, and share their own experiences. You'll have to find out who the market manager or co-ordinator is - they're usually the ones who answer the emails. Oh, and don't contact a restaurant from 4:00-9:00 p.m. Leave a message in the morning, or from 2:00-4:00. Good luck this year! I hope these thoughts help out a bit. I hear a lot of pain on here, and want to help. I have had good experience in the past doing it both ways. Now I pick for fun and to feed my family. Full buckets!

My post was not a threat. Every time you connect to the internet your connection is logged on your server. Also all the sites you visit are kept on a log. It is a simple matter of checking these logs to find out who you are. I then can tell my server to deny you access to my domain or deny anyone connecting from that server.

I'm trying to resolve the situation without taking this action. If you want to continue the "game", I welcome and accept the challenge. I will even enjoy it more than you!!

Shroomer, your kindness in your reply means a lot for someone that knows nothing about picking but loves it as a way to connect with nature. I lost my father this year and seek a place to just be... out finding myself. Thank you. I know it would be hard to not be a cynic, but people like me appreciate your posts. To others, take a hard look at yourself. Its sad that the rest of us have to be cynical because of a couple sociopaths.

Greetings all, I talked to my server and hope to have a registration for the 2 boards in a few days. It's hard for me to determine which names are being used by the original holder of that name. I do my best, but can't be sure. If you see a post that is not yours, email me and I will delete the post that is not yours but under your name. This will also help me identify the person using others names. Matsiman

Another fairly large rain cell moving north-east of Enumclaw now, was down closer to packwood earlier. This general area has been getting all the rain lately, day after day (see my previous post) Most of the rest of the rainfall across Wa this am has just been lite drizzle, not amounting to much.

Oh I forgot to mention - The forest looks good in various undisclosed location where I've been scouting. Other areas are very dry and will likely produce little or nothing without serious rain. The real stuff, not a little drizzle. But my test spots are great, nothing like last years drought , the forest is alive with goos growth. And them big ass skeeters.......

Just home from an all day scouting trip to another undisclosed location. Small Scabers, a few. One nice big and wormy Bolete, random Russlua's , varois other fungus including some nasty coral from a few weeks ago. Otherwise nothing. Nobody needs to get all worked up and freaked out just yet. It simply aint time........Today was my third in a row to various undisclosed locations and the results were very similar from one to another. Anybody who tries to to you its awesome picking now is talkin out their pooper.

Does anyone know if their are any new buyers on the coast this year I was going to Ed @ Ed's quality mushroom's in Bunker Hill but he will cheat you the picker he also sent me some nasty text messages he is not as good of a person as he appears do not fall victum to him as I did he lies to the pickers had me come to Prospect / Bute Falls to pick morels and promised to show me where to go but never done so. Also he buys for Don and Dorris who are the worse buyers on the coast other then Carla and Arlis. *** BOYCOT *** ED'S Quality Mushrooms in Coos Bay/ Bunker Hill go see Jake

Winnie - Hey I just walked in the door - home- and looked to see it's even bigger now than you described. I can see this massive storm has now reached Kamloops Canada running up east of Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park for the most part but the lower end is still lingering northeast of Packwood Wa. If you drew a straight line on the map from Packwood to Cle Elum that's where the end of the major red - orange cells end. The middle of the big cells are directly east of Monroe/Snohomish area. OMG!!! This one storm in the last several hours today had dumped EXTREME heavy rain over the Wa cascades from Mt Baker north. This is the fourth one of these in as many days I have tracked across the Wa Cascades! They originate far inland - Wyoming and Idaho and travel across the extreme far corner of eastern Oregon then across eastern Wa and into the Cascades. Very unusual for sure, especially as much of Oregon, especially the southern part swelters under another heat wave, north of that is rain city! I can hardly contain my excitement if you can tell. Oh btw - I have ordered a copy of Langdon Cooks book. And I steal his recipies off the blog too, Superb dining for sure! LOL!!! Happy hunting all !!

A month and a half of full fledged drought conditions in central Vancouver Island...just putting it out there, but if these are the rains coming on the horizon, then their timing couldn't be better. Last year we were dry as a bone well into September. Mid August rains are exactly what the crop needs (I speak mostly of pines). Good luck folks. See you in the patch Johnny G if you're reading this.

Lobster mushrooms are starting to pop in the West Kootenays. About half of what we found were buggy but we managed to get enough for us for the year. Now to wait for the pines and chantrelles.

The main cell is now crossing I-90 centered at Snoqualmie pass and is 30-40 miles across and 20+ miles deep. Constant color is yellow, to dark orange/red meaning very,very heavy rain production. These are the kind of storms that commonly dump 1-2 inches of rain in an hour or less and saturate the ground deep. Just one of these big boomer is worth weeks of ordinary drizzle type rain because it penetrates the forest canopy and reaches the ground below. A perfect storm for mushroom production and just one of many across the area recently. Get ready people it's gonna be an awesome season.

I remember back about six or seven years ago I went picking ... profit picking the first week of September. I remember because my kids were in their first week of school and I had to ask my mom to babysit for me. I am watching it rain right now and also last night we had some good 'ol fashioned thunderstorms. I pick on the southwest-east slope of St. Helens. Just wondering if anybody has put their feelers out just yet. Any information greatly appreciated. As of now, I am still stuck in the city. Full buckets, matsigurl...

Hi Keith, thanks for everything you do, and have done, for the wild foods and crafts industry, local and distant, not to mention all of the advocacy work. I know you and your group's work is known - and has been appreciated - far and wide. Also thanks for the help a few years ago with the poundage I needed to add to my restau order, on top of what I had picked. And the conversation. I remember it well, and use what you told me in life, as well as in the patch. I wish you all the best in your further ventures. Please let us know if there will be a new buyer in the area, or have them come on the board to let us know. Many thanks! and Full buckets.

t - n - a : from what i could ascertain, FNW had a vision about attempting to monitor harvest locations for accountability and traceability of wild mushrooms and help out harvestors/ buyers. on a large concerted scale with alot of consumers and harvestors backing, it made alot of sense. the costs and effort must have been immense and perhaps not sustainable. i gather K.H. can answer more detailed questions. i did drop in to see for myself what's up and it looked promising. there's just not enough consumers to support the scale. good luck with the other challenges Keith. i certainly have learned much from him and others on this site. its great to have you making an heartfelt professional effort in any postive direction for all of us and future forest walkers.

Greetings: We wanted to let people know that First Nations Wildcrafters BC will no longer be buying and/or offering for sale to our customers our wild harvested mushrooms and other food products. We have deeply appreciated and are very thankful for the relationships we have been able to enjoy with our harvesters, the people working in our buying station and with our customers. Being innovative and adaptive is key to any business in today's economic and natural resources environments. In the past few years we found ourselves doing much more work in the area of pilot project development and management, special projects management, forest policy development, and working in areas such as providing technical assistance and coordination services in reviews of environmental impact studies and consultation for Tseshaht First Nation. We look forward to focusing more on our evolved core business services that we feel are needed to meet the challenges of this era we have moved into. Our knowledge, experiences and the direction our business has grown has led us towards making the decision to focus on our core services that we will be providing. We will continue with the bio-products pilot project work we have undertaken as well as the work we are doing with policy development and environmental impact studies assistance. Cumulative effects assessments, climate change adaptation planning, referral process development and implementation(particularly as impact and incorporates traditional use of resources in decision-making) will continue to the focus of much of the work we do with our clients. Due to changes in policy direction of governments, we will also be focused on providing services that are specifically designed to assist in creating jobs and employment in First Nations communities. Our work has always been much more to us than just running a business. We have and will continue to always keep at the core of our decision-making the core traditional values and teachings that we carry in our lives. We also will continue to always keep in mind the needs of the next generations of all life that depends upon a healthy world to thrive. We would like to sincerely thank all of you that have been a part of this fantastic experience and journey we have had with our business, First Nations Wildcrafters, BC.

Norhwestjones; it was an interesting three weeks, I drove a total of 4,410 miles and researched several burn sites in the Rocky mountains as well as visiting my favorite King Boletus patch a couple weeks earlier than I usually would have done; there were buttons coming up prolifically and it looks like a banner year ought to be happening right now in my favorite mountains. Some sites showed evidence of having been awesome earlier in the year for conica but were dry as an old bone with no morels in sight by the time I got there. I do not really care for conica or their odor very much and it was greys & greenies that I hoped to get. My favorite three mushrooms of this time of year ought to be in full production mode right now as I languish at home in hopes of getting back into the Rockies soon; kings, greys & greenies.

Oh bummer, I found the photos but also noticed a problem - the date stamp (year) on them is off by four years dangit. The kids were the last to use this camera before me and I guess the messed it up so the date shown on my photos is 2009 not 2013 when they were actually taken.

Hello, I know their are other glowing mushrooms like the Armillaria mellea but again no visible mycelium. Possibly glowing spores?

Hello, Hey anyone ever see a trees root structure and base glowing in the dark? I was camping and was looking for firewood and found a tree with about 2 feet of the base glowing. I thought it might have been mycelium from jack o lanterns but when I inspected it in the morning there was no sign of mycelium or mushrooms. I took a piece with me might have it researched more. It was in the high cascades of Oregon.

Pissing rain in the Koots should be a good season!

In the Cascades there is a reddish conica morel variety that has been named as "pinks" by some west coast government researchers because they thought that all conica were predominately of that coloration. I informed them that the further inland they travel to other burn sites, the colors tend to more brown, green, black as well as numerous colors other than pink. If you send photos of your green morels to matsiman and he posts them, then several people here could help identify if they were greenish conica or another predominately later variety known as greenies, pickles or olives which tend to grow in drier soils after the greys are through for the year. They are my personal favorite morel for eating and most commercial pickers are familiar with them.

We had some weird kinda off colors show up in Oregon morels this spring that I hadn't seen before so I took a few photos just to show anybody who was interested that may not have otherwise believed me. A few very bright green ones and some almost red! I don't know if they are different species or just variants.
