I checked my "oyster tree" today. It looks like I should have checked it a few weeks ago.

Typical for my shroom hunting lately.

I had the same sad realization on Sunday. I found 30+ lbs of oysters in a spot last year, but when I went up to check/harvest this year there weren't very many and what was there were old and shriveled up. Good thing I still have plenty of dried from last year.

Still kind of a bummer since I made a 45 min drive for that purpose. Thankfully, there were a few small browns I could coax into sucking down a Goddard's Caddis for my first fish on dries this year. Decent consolation prize.

Oh and I have "All that the rain promises and more" by David Arora and it is pretty good. He has another book that is quite a bit more extensive.

Definitely pheasant backs. They should smell like watermelon rind. Young ones like the ones in your picture are good. They get really hard and woody the older they get.

Any experience or advice, or identification correction is appreciated.

I've eaten a lot of these, meaty with a great morel flavor. I only eat a few at a time.

Some books call it poisonous, some say edible.

The false morel, brain morel, snowbank morel. Gyromitra whatever. Common in the Uintas, has dangerous lookalikes.

Wear gloves, cut the mushroom in half and look for chambers, consult your field guide. Do not eat any false morel raw.

Be careful out there.
