My new Handyman, love it!
Jealous! I haven't had a chance to go check my chanterelle spots yet! That's a nice haul, where are you located?
Also, what's the one in the bottom middle? Doesn't look like a chant, but I can't really make out the details.
Had a good day for the hawks wing or scaly hedgehog mushrooms on Sunday! Sarcodon imbricatus
I'll have more pictures and such in a full trip report post in the next few days.
Thank you! I'm on the west coast of Sweden. It's been a bit too set this year to be a really good chanterelle year. But I'm happy with what we've got.
The whiteish mushroom is a "Hydnum repandum", apparently known as the sweet tooth, wood hedgehog or hedgehog mushroom in English. We call it "spine mushroom", because the bottom is covered with lots of tiny spikes.
Definitely! I thought that's what it might be. I have a spot for those here in Colorado that's been pretty productive for me when we get rain. I'll be heading to check on it in the next couple weeks, hopefully I find some to share pictures of on here!
Those hawks wings (scaly hedgehogs) I posted above are also "toothed" like H. repandum. Some of my favorite mushrooms!
I'd love to get over to that part of the world to do some foraging.
From earlier in the season, my Ladyfinger with a baby king bolete (Boletus rubriceps) and a cool looking little hedgehog (Hydnum repandum).
Surls Patch and the Ladyfinger came out with me today. We found a few chanterelles (Cantharellus roseocanus), a shrimp Russula (R. xerampelina), and a saffron milkcap (Lactarius deliciosus group).
That 3/32" LF is one of the posted photographed FB's around. Love it.
I went out this afternoon with the intention of sitting in the deer stand and doing some hunting. It was cold and rainy and my heart just wasn't in it today. I was much more interested in walking the woods to see if the recent rain had produced any hen-of-the-woods. I ventured off intovthe woods (away from my hunting ground) and set off looking for mushrooms. Unfortunately I did not come across any hens, there have only been a handful of reports that they are up, but I did come across some other edibles. I found 15-20 puff balls, but only harvested one as I do not enjoy them all that much, I also found a bunh of oysters. I haven't eaten oyster mushrooms before, so I am excited to cook them up. I used my new F2 to collect the oysters. I gotta say I really love that knife!
Odaon how do you cook those hedgehogs? I've seen quite a few huge ones bumming around the mountains, but they look so alien...
Thanks, it is quickly becoming my favorite food prep and small game knife!
The F2 is awesome! I know most like them thin and all, but I want one in tapered 5/32 or at least 1/8 for small game prep and I like being ablt to tell the knife is in my pocket without feeling
1/8" would be nice, I wouldn't mind a little weight to the knife. However 3/32" is some sweet stuff. It is light, nimble, and makes for a great slicer.
Yeah, I had one in 3/32 a few years ago, and have handled several others. The 3/32 doesn't suck or anything, I'm just still holding out for a thicker one though. My Handyman and Esquire both are 5/32 and I like it that way
I love my 5/32 Esquire. I want to get my hands in a 5/32 Toboggan or Hiking Buddy.
Doing a little resurrection on this thread. Got out today for some foraging after work!
Yellow morels and my favorite foraging knife! 3/32 CPM F2!
Dryad's saddle and my EDC Surls Patch.
Whitetop mustard, it's like spicy broccoli.
Cleavers, also known as bedstraw, stickywilly, goosegrass, and others.
Evening primrose, pretty plant even before it blooms!
Awesome! I finally figured out where the wild onions grow in Colorado. Just haven't found a large enough patch of them to consider harvesting any yet.
Spent about 30 minutes after work gathering a bunch of stuff.
What a score
those morels i got from you were great last year. my first time trying them
