    I actually almost hit a guy on the trail this afternoon while he was mushroom hunting. He was looking for Murells? He found 6 in an hour and showed me a few. I guess the weather and the area of the woods we were in were perfect conditions.

    We were in Northern Lancaster County. Mossy, ferns, Southern Exposure, all attributes for good shrooms is what we were told.

    Morels are great, but take care to not mis-identify a false morel. They are shown to cause some stomach issues if eaten in large enough quantities and they look pretty similar to real morels (slight difference in the appearance of the cap).

    As far as true morels go, check places that have been burned in the past year and you may find a wealth of 'shrooms!

    The last ones posted are chicken of the woods. Easy to ID and quite tasty. Here around Pisgah National Forest where I live, htey appear in mid-summer. My 11 and 12 year old bring them home a lot, they love them. We cook them in butter and onion. Great side dish to a steak.

    Chicken of the woods

    I've had the big orange ones "Chicken of the woods" on the grill with barbeque sauce at a friends party. Very tasty. I see them in the woods all the time but don't feel confident enough to pick & cook them. Is ther any sure firee way to ID them?
