Hello there, long time mushroom hobbyist. (Studying, growing :meditate: ) Oddly enough i have never been out into the wild to actually hunt for mushrooms, i'd like too this year but we had a pretty rough winter up here in Manitoba (Canada) and it's been a month and a half of hot/humid days and rainy days. How long does it take for wild mushrooms to emerge after winter i guess i'm asking.

It goes crazy once green things begin to have leaves...........but here I see first spring polypores right after it's not freezing anymore.............

 

The key is making repeated trips out, pick a nice trail down through and along a creek bottom, and carefully observe the same places...

 

You'll see, go slow and scan the ground and dead/dying tree's along the way.............get a field guide and a backpack

 

I've used this https://www.amazon.c...n/dp/B0051HAZ5M

 

For years now.........a dated notebook comes in handy too...............

Perfect! Thank you very much, i'm going to study up and see what the land has to offer. I'll probably throw a thread up tommarow.

Get a copy of the book from a local seller too, or where ever you buy books, another very useful field guide for you pack is the Audubon North American Tree identification guide,  so you're not dependent on any connectivity or phone.........

 

Good hunting and learning to you..........you're going to be amazed at what you find.........

Just an observation on my part.......post your local poisonous lookalike's too brother........I always start my newbie's off with the local deadly mushrooms.

 

Nice booklet...I like it.........

 

I take them out and show them the ones I know, and how many I DON'T know..........  :biggrin:

 

Be safe and NO EATING anything without 100% positive ID...........

Just a note: I did check the updated list of what grows in my area but Manitoba was not on the list and I also checked on line for North Dakota as I figured if it grows in North Dakota it will grow in Manitoba but North Dakota was a bust. There is one really big thing that grows in Manitoba every summer they call them the "Blue Bombers" they go from June til October (regular season) but they rarely advance into the extended latter part of the season of November (Grey Cup).

Just found this link (there really is very little info for mushrooms available for North Dakota) I will post what I did find you could contact them as what grow there will probably be found in Manitoba. There is no web site just this mailing address. Regards mjroom.
