Terrace mountian fire............. was there the last 2 weekends and it's not producing like you think it would . I took my 2 young sons, 10 and 12 yrs old, out for thier very first time and we got 12 lbs in 3 hours the price was $7. There are lots of pickers there but many don't venture too far from the road. My kids can't wait to go agian and sept. won't come quick enough as now they want in on the pine patches. :) life is good full buckets to all, be safe and pack out what you pack in.

MushMur... So what you are saying if I hear you correct; You have no picking experience, no vehicle, you are almost broke and you want to pick mushrooms. I hope you have good gear and grub to get you through the next couple weeks. I have logged close to 50 kms on two burns in three days just to know where the mushrooms are or should be growing in the next week or two. There is quite a bit of competition for this years mushrooms. Make sure you have a good map and compass if you don't have a gps because the easy mushrooms have been raped from the ground. You are going to have to hike deep to make any money this year.

I was offered a job about a week ago in Lillooet and I have a bus ticket to cache creek at midnight ; however, my contact has left kamloops for a week and I want to be able to start tomorrow when I get into Lillooet. I have never done it before but I have been waiting for the last couple years to do it. Im just going to be "huffin it" for the first couple days as I am almost flat broke until I can find some morels and a buyer. So I need some help...even something to do if its not picking time yet. ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

It is to bad that people dont practise what u pack in pack out. The garbage in the bush is so sad.The mill owner in Sorrento was nice and letting us in but some idiots and some locals were not respecting his land or rules so they had to wreck it for everyone.I wish that people would get a clue and treat things and the land with the respect they all deserve.

I did much walking today and found 8 pounds in 3 hours. The Sorrento fire has been pounded pretty hard. Because of some idiots leaving their garbage in the bush and stealing a powersaw from the property everyone was walking through the property owner has made it quit clear that he doesn't want anyone parking on or near his property and doesn't want anyone accessing the burn through his property. I hauled out 4 plastic water bottles, 2 empty pop cans and a beer can. I cannot say I blame the guy or the others who live in the area for wanting the pickers out if this is what they are doing. Their trash is worth 35 cents and was the easiest money I found on the ground today. The buyer is only paying 5 bucks a pound in Sorrento... Time to start drying. On the good side it was raining on the way back to town. How are things up your way RobInBarrier?

Flashing dried mushrooms is a heat treatment used to kill off any bacteria, fungi and critter eggs. very important if you want repeat business, especially if the place they go to is humid....flies hatching out of your dried mushrooms and circling the mushroom pieces on someones kitchen counter is kind of counterproductive to establishing markets, lol. get the proper instructions from someone you trust BEFORE you sell any dried mushrooms (one cranky customer tells 10 people, one satisfied customer tells maybe 2 people if your lucky).

There is a lot of research and planning to find 100 pound ground. If you are afraid of the bush and unwilling to step over the small patches to find the big ones that is what you end up picking. Damn! That is a great feeling when you walk into ground that has a few hundred pounds just sitting ready to be picked.... I'm off looking tomorrow... Great picking to you all!!

mushroomman..... aint that the truth... truth is 99% will nvr pick 100lbs. in a day ever. 50lbs is alot for the vast majority during the peak... many will max at 35lbs/day.... but there are some that will at times pick over 100lbs in a day...... Daniel..... any tent will work if you get enough air flow. you will still need to flash your dried to kill any moth eggs etc. that will hatch mid winter.... i will always prefer a tarp over a MOT0R HOME lol

Enuf with the rasist comments like "white trash" Trash is trash and dont fkn mater what fkn color you are. We dont need that kinda crap comments here. "Illiterate lowlife" is strong enuf to make your point.....Truth is most pickers that lv trash behind are noobs or locals and in general compared to any other industry have the least impact on the environment... Respect is not a learned behaviour, its a skill that reflects we give a shit.. its a way of life. Its a skill that pays back 2 fold. for example: give a smile to a group and you get many back........ Chuck you behave or i'll tie a big heavy pack on ya ;)

glad to hear acces is blocked, who wants some grungy mushroom pickin dirtbags littering up thier land with the garbage and crap most pickers throw around. most pickers are only takers (except the wonderful people here) with little heed to taking care of the environment. To the good people who care about thier environmental impact cheers! to the others booooooo.

The easiest road to the lilloet fire is right through the middle of the rez. when I was there a couple of weeks ago the holes were dug where the gate was going to be put but it wasn't up then. You could always ask at the band office for permission the worst that could happen is they say no. good luck :)

I like the Garmin GPSMAP 60csx I got it right after it came out. The Quadhelix antenna is better than the old style but it still doesn't always work when you are in cover but in the open it usually gets a signal in less than 20 seconds. It does have alot of useless extra features but I think it is as easy to use as any other GPS.

As for the King. there is only one. Sorry for imposing Randy. You will always be the King. I was hoping that comment would bring you and you energy back to the board. lol. I have had the luxury and the back to be able to pack out 100 lbs a day after driving 140k to the patch, pick for 4-5 hours, pack out 2-3 km, and drive back 140k in time for dinner. Tim can verify this. I was lucky to meet Markus that year. And yes everything Randy said is true. That Man is a machine!! lol Currently I doubt I could pack you around opt. lol I hope you know I was just funnin ya!lol My 100 pound days are over. The back just is not what it used to be. Have a Great Season everyone!!

The best thing about this pack is their "V2" system... Adjustable for your hight and body type and really comfortable. It is possible to transfer most of the weight right to your lower back and ride the pack on your hips.... They are worth every penny you pay for them.... I have talked to some hunters that use them to haul out quarters of moose and deer.. Have fun guys.

I line the baskets with leaves and such so the basket holes dont damage the mushrooms.... part of being a pro is knowing how to handle the shrooms.... any fool can pick a shit load.. what counts is what you place on the buyers table.

Man there were so many matsi and I hate to leave mushrooms behind me.

Then drive 1000km to the airport over gumbo covered roads and be back in time for dinner.... have dinner ready for all his m8s when they come stumbling into camp after picking a mear 5 baskets all day.....

mikenmatt your plight in trying to discuss this with me is becoming a rather humorous display of presumptions on your part and red herring arguments. Yes, I read your posts and others, just as you have, but where you get this idea that all I know is what I have read in a few posts is rather fallicious on your part because it has been very well demonstrated in a very posts that you do not understand ecology, botany, resource management and/or yield production. So now, after having so handily disputed your original "rookie" comment you now posit for me that 1) ecological principles and science a different standard if someone is "desperate" and 2) that having successfully demonstrated your lack of knowledge of science somehow translates that your reputation is enhanced by such a display of unsupportable postulations about biomass. I don't suppose it ever crosses your realm of thought that not all pickers are desperate and some of us actually know someting about the forest science involved?

Boo to you,you're not the brightest light bulb are you?I was trying to save the pickers thier gas.Do the math...300 lbs divided by 60 pickers.What's the answer?I believe that would be 5 lbs apiece!Are you going to drive a couple of hours to a fire to make 40 or 50 bucks?

kingmorel; I agree with you and others about not selling morels that can fall thru the cracks and waiting until they get to 1 1/2 inch or more, especially conica. ....; as for one inch natural blacks that seem to fall into my poke, I pick them for personal consumption & just love the flavor of naturals at that size each spring. ...... yum YUM

I wanted to say one more thing about baby morels. Those that target the babies will step on more that they pick and for the most part those stepped on pinheads will die. More morels will start and even grow in old footsteps or atv tracks. There is a week or two span that we refer to at the start of the flush where its babies only. Once there are bigger shrooms then most will not waste there time on 1/2 inch mushrooms. Sometimes I will grab an odd baby if I have crawled under a blowdown, with extreme effort, grabed a handfull of full grown and eyed the baby and said what the hell "im under here now". Most of us can wait out a week while the babies grow a bit... we wait all winter so whats a week... still have not seen who is buying those babies.... what buyers that is...???

mikenmatt I have read your responses to me and the other responses on this discussion about whether or not baby morels (or other mushroom species) add biomass (read grow larger) or not. I must say after considering what you have posted that you prove that someone can claim to have picked for years and have some superior knowledge and still not have the basic knowledge of growth stages and biomass (how big mushrooms started off as babies--duh). Evidently it takes more than years in the patches for someone to know what the heck they are talking about.

People have been picking babys for years,both pines and morels.One would have to be pretty dense not to relise that they're hurting thier bottom line by picking small mushrooms.As sad as it is,it's not going to stop anytime soon.So we might as well get over it and get on with enjoying the season.Full buckets to all!!!

the spores dont become active until triggered again by a fire or logging or such,1 big morel puts out about a million or so spores give or take,if you cut off the morel and leave the stem it will continue to grow,without a cap,the mushroom is still doing what nature meant it to do ,which is to cultivate and aerate the soil,so that the grasses can come in and prevent erosion until the next young trees begin to grow,even while you are carrying your musrooms around in baskets on a rack while picking, these spores are being spread,also no one is condoning picking babies,but it is usually not a factor in the size of the crop unless you are in the U.S and large crews pick and pick the babies

wow I had to put my 5 cents on that !! you're right Kingmorel ... for all pickers that r wondering what babies are for : REPRODUCTION.... wanna do a test : take a handfull of babies , put em on a paper towel overnight and see the results .... that yellow powder : SPORES . unfortunatly some buyers are the first ones to blame. full buckets eveyones !!

alvo,we are not leaving for a couple of days,stillpacking and doing vehicle maintenance,also its just like randy says,you try and pick inch and a half up and you still end up with one inchers and then the real tiny ones start getting reaped,we used to be out in the third week of april and have had to pick some small mushrooms to get by,the buyer paid 12,but in the end it is better to show up after baby season,say in about ten days to two weeks from now if the weather gets real hot,hopefully things go slow and we can get a decent natural season in, jim from faro,give us dingle if you want,good luck,good to see that it is possible to disagree and not be to critiqued,randy how did the wood thing go

Anyone have any input on the Kelly lake (Clinton) fire....?? A 2 hole basket will hold about 12-17 lbs. of morels depending on quality. Keep your stems white and short... no cotton and no splash. Good picking everyone.

mikenmatt is right,garf you dont even pick,morels grow slow at first when it is cool,when the days become hot and especially if the nights are cold ,the mushrooms grow fast and blowout,especially naturals,when the conditions become hot and muggy and dont fluctuate then the fire morels get wormy ,especially east of the cascades,I suspect you wont hear from mikenmatt to much now,as these are serious pickers,morels are a different type of mushroom ,more of a temporary cultivator,also im pretty sure mikenmatt cut off the morel without removing the stem from the ground,how does this do damage,you guys probably pull the mushroom and then cut it off,p.s garf,you left all your garbage behind at the last fire you were at near bella coola and here you are blabbin, good luck to all the real pickers this year,take all your garbage out and bury your shit,these are the basic ethics for morel pickers

If its wet out and the mushrooms are older a lvl basket of morels can weigh 16lbs as older mushrooms soak up the water... younger mushrooms soak up way less water. If its dry then a lvl 5k basket can weight as low as 8lbs. (thats when you should dry your own)..... picking babies is normally done by rookie pickers that just dont know any better... One 5k basket of babies will normally be 5-10 baskets in a weeks time. I have farmed countless burns and just dont bother with the babies as thier just not worth my time, besides i got issues with ruining my own future. I have seen pickers bring in babies so small they were falling thru the holes in the baskets!!!! they were first time pickers!!! And yes they did stall and ruin that part of the burn. You had to go above where they baby raped to get any mushrooms in volume after that. In Oregon I have seen whole burns ruined with persons of Asian desent picking babies. When you have alot of picking pressure then the acceptable size drops as most dont want others to get the mushrooms. I try to keep my size limit over 1 1/2" but there always seems to be 1' mushrooms in my buckets. At the begining of the flush all babies start small and grow to large mushrooms (if left alone) Towards the end of the flush you will find what we call knucklers.... morels that fold up from out of the ground already grown... thats a sign its almost over. Dont know about others buckets but mine hold up to 2.... 5kg baskets... but i have cloth extenders that close and extend my buckets... we will soon be past the baby season and most will not bother with babies as its a waste of time and resource for the most part... It would be good to see buyers names posted here that buy babies ;)

just gotta laugh at some of the posts.... baby season lasts for a short time??? ok explain that fully would you .... for that particular baby it would last a little longer if it was left to grow maybe ..... that seems logical to me ... so baby season lasts as long as there is still mushrooms because they all come from babies ..... but baby season doesn't last long enough to kill the crop... where the heck does the crop come from??? is this a riddle??? lol

No.I said whining about it is being a rookie,because it happens at every fire and every morel picker knows it,if you are out of money of course you will pick whats there,this site is full of blabbers like yourself and another picker,so much so that the site becomes useless,you can say and think what you want,but I know the reality,because I have picked for years and years,also baby season lasts for a short time,not long enough to kill the crop, no offense intended,you will see for yourself,also, we are ethical pickers,mostly due to the fact that we are not desperados,but for people that are,well ,ya gotta get by and I can understand cause I been there as they say, also,misty mountain is about the only company that does not buy babies, or Trent at sierra madre,10 to 1 that another buyer is buying for one of the two

mikenmatt your post stating that letting mushrooms grow larger until they are picked is a sign of rookie flies in the face of reason. It is exactly that money grabbing mentality of some pickers and buyers that ruin this industry and give it a bad reputation. Of course picking every small mushroom in a patch prevents any full growth to occur. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn't understand nature or economics to think it is better to prevent better management of patches.

Picked a burn near Pemberton all weekend. Got about 30 pounds with a lot of effort as this burn was pretty steep. Around 750 metres (2400') was most productive. Met quite a few professionals (I'm an amateur/culinary picker) and there was a buyer at the trailhead who offered me $10 a pound. Beautiful country up there!

Hi pickers, back home now after going out to the burn in BB, camping there for two nights with a few friends. Not pop up yet, need more sun. Got a pound of natural morel close to the burn and along the road. Some pickers scouting there too. Many bear hunters riding ATV back and forth along Uztilus Cr FSR. Good to see people enjoy outdoors activities. I don't know if you were there Sam. Hey rdawg76, this is one stop site for all burn, then pick whatever you want, cheerful heart every body. http://bcwildfire.ca/History/LargeFires2009.htm

rdawg76; there were some huge fires in the Alaskan bush last year that ought to produce big-time, however accessibly is mostly dependent upon flying abilities of the rotator type. If you are living in the lower 48 I could possibly get you to a burn site if they ever pop good. ........ I taught a person two years ago who subsequently did not keep her word and taught other commercial-pickers-in-denial. I do not mind helping people find matsutake, morels etc but cringe within when I find that I have helped someone who attacks legitimate commercial pickers as though they are dirt to be trampled upon and then sells their ill-gotten-gain with a holier-than-thou-attitude. ........ thanks for all the support; King Morel, Carla, Alice, Daddy in Wa, Brenda of Dufers Group and all other good people I may have missed. I just read thru the past posts and a line from the story "War Party" by Louis L'Amour comes to mind; "The dogs bark, but the wagons go on their way, and if you're going someplace you haven't time to bother with barking dogs"........ I never was one to follow a pack.

I can't help but agree that Lobo is one of those guys who just tries to be helpful and share his vast knowledge!

I bet ya fill those buckets up Sam.. its that time of the month ;) Sounds to me like everything is on a normal shedule from past years IMO. Any rain or snow now means more and better mushrooms when it melts. Its still early for burns anyways. In southern Oregon Ive seen it snow over a foot covering all the morels just coming up... three days later the snow was gone and there were morels everywhere......... In regards to trashing and flaming below: Thats normal behavour of those that care only about themselves. Its simply a ploy to shift blame onto others to condone their own short comings. Pretty sad when ya think about it. Lobo is good people IMO NUFF SAID

We AGREE Sam, what with all the available internet fire information it is kinda weird to attack someone for helping a fellow human. The lobo helped our group privately last year and has helped numerous others, always files his taxes and purchases permits when required. Yet there are people from the CMS board and elsewhere who have trashed him numerous times on this & that discussion board; yet those types are often ones who come to our area and pick commercially without a permit, brag about their thefts online and then trash others whom they have stolen from. How do they sleep at night knowing what type of person they are inside?

Wow the snow is down in the foothills in may can see it from my house in troutdale. Not sure when the burns will produce this year July? I just might have to hit my blackberry/tick ridden patch. A buyer in the gresham area must be doing well though sell 100 lots of four pounds per lot on ebay. well good luck all

Went to the Chase/Sorrento fire today,found two small morels.The fire is almost 100% fir,and drier than a popcorn fart.Access is poor at best,I think it's a pretty useless fire.(just my opinion)The Prichard fire is blanketed by three inches of fresh,wet,heavy snow. :-)

This morning I feel a little bit sad after reading from a certain post, that feeling was with me just about 2minutes and I let it goes. I prefer to have a cheerful heart and positive thinking. It is written " A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bone." Thank you for some post in this site with a positive way. You right Sam, I got every burn with coordinates in my GPS and my back road map from Gov. site.

kudos given to yourself? way to go tommy boy. I certainly appreciate it when I see such negative postings by persons who attempt to push their personal agenda of attacking those who help others, NOT. kinda like what occurs on C losed M inded S ellers discussion board where I recently posted something and watched the reactions I have viewed this type of aptitude for years. Often thief's get all upset because they cannot sell as many of their stolen product because someone helped a newbe find the burn, don't ya love watching it all unfold.

Really have to love the Positivity of the last post. I found that I couldn't change the world around me but could change the people that met me. As of late they are all better off from the experience because I decided to look at the world through positive eyes and a smile. Have a Great Day Everybody! :D

Kudos to shroomertom. Carla, I respect you and will bring you a pound of coffee one of these days. You know that people that you pay $50 a day are not making any money. They are paying to pick. Why do many pickers think they have a viable occupation when they pay more in expenses then the companies pay them for their product? Phantom Whiner, yes, you are probably pretty old (you seem to be having trouble following threads on the Net and tend to mix things up a bit) and have been collecting since before you were born. FYI- Some people can do the same thing over and over and never learn anything. Take manicjon, for example, he just keeps posting new locations after everyone gets upset with him, YEAR AFTER YEAR. Looking for validation from unknown people is a kind of sickness. To satisfy a "new" "anonymous" poster's ego (hmmm... the writing style seems oddly familiar... morel research? thinks they are alone?), the Williams Creek Fire has been decimated before it could get going (ok, the companies would have had the crews kill it if it ever did pop more then ten mushrooms), and now LoneLobo names yet another eastside site for the newbs to kill. Nice going jon. Have the clubs clobbered it yet? I am sure that we will meet again, hopefully soon, to compare notes. (just because i am crabby doesn't mean i don't like you guys. if everyone agreed, we wouldn't learn anything.) Mushrooming spots are worth nothing, if you get them free. Ask the neighbors of the friends of the friends of your friends you took along once when they are standing in a patch that took you ten years to locate.

Damn! Damn and damn again. Better conditions in Whitehorse than in the Okanagan . Snow in all the mountain passes and nighttime temps almost at freezing. We'll be picking Channies before these friggin' Morels get going.

Horace Sheffield; There is no snow here and have not seen any. I heard on the news that the North Cascades Highway is closed but there are no morels yet worth chasing up in that country, to my knowledge anyway. I found that post and figured the blacks were from the early area near Lake. ..... I am giving a ride to a man traveling from Florida on a bicycle who paid my fuel to get him over to the Cascades in Washington. I had been in Riggins Idaho for the rodeo and early morels and he had two flat tires with need to purchase new ones, he will head over the mountain when they give the all-clear for snow-slide danger on the highway. ....... I shall check out the burn for myself soon.

Thank you Tinker for the information. Saving me a lot on gas and time. I agree with you on the temperature. I almost pack up my things, hauling trailer with ATV and heading to Cottonwood or Scudamore or Stewart or even to Brittany Triangle to set up a camp. But rethink of what you said, thanks again. In next couple of weeks you might see a Frontier driver then do not for get to say hello, then I am able to say thanks in person to you.

Aim High,the Kamloops area is still way to cool.We need some heat,we're still dropping down to plus two at night in the valley.We've had some rain,but could certainly use more.Just a guess,but I would think we're still a couple of weeks away.

Hi Garf, The wet to dry rate can vary from 12-1 to as low as 7-1 depending on how dry the picking conditions are. RDawg I am currently in the process of getting something on the road. My reliable Diesel Ranger just had the injector pump die on it and my second gas 4 cylinder had an electrical fire on Saturday. ICBC is dealing with the matter now... I have another vehicle sitting in Williams Lake that I am going up to pick up this weekend if all goes as planned... My plans have been shot to crap lately tho. send me an email @ chuckwpearson@yahoo.com so we can talk

Garf,it depends on how much moisture is in the mushrooms.When they're really wet the ratio is approximately ten pounds wet to one pound dry,but as the fires start to dry out that ratio will start dropping.Full Buckets

curly sue, sorry, you must be looking for some other skook, I do not have your number. Skookum means 'the very best' and chuck has to do with my 'mushroom cooking' but the name of skookunchuck is on numerous streams, mountains and old logging camp areas in North America. Hope everyone has an excellent morel season, but I agree with kingmorel and feel that the season may be a bit short this year.
