If we get rains lots of fungi will fruit. That's a big if as we get most of our rains between mid June and mid September and this year was very dry. Some people have found pockets of moisture on the Mogollon Rim where caesar's, boletes, slippery jacks and others are fruiting.
David, We in live in Payson too. Ive been hunting mushrooms for a short three years but got the most out of last years white mountain forey. Walked side by side Mike Detcher and his family. Lots of knowledgeable people there. Registration open now for this year. Good luck!
Still waiting for more rain to come before getting out to mushroom hunt. We have some forays planned for August. Spots are limited, but August is generally the best time to get out!
Go where the rain is...but you need to be proficient with identification as a lot of gilled Mushrooms are out after rain... So not picking for a beginner again unless you are proficiant with gilled mushrooms other than possible oyster mushrooms.
Is Any one going for Mushroom hunt, this season ?
Also puffball mushrooms
Oyster mushrooms, lion's mane, cauliflower mushrooms, slippery jacks Aspen boletes, rubriceps boletes, boletus Barrowsii, chicken in the woods, chanterelles, lobster mushrooms.... with all this rain we have quite a few mushrooms out there!!...Chris May posted a map of areas to go hunting on Facebook if you can't find it I can see if I can locate it or you could ask Chris directly..thanks beth
I am new to the AZ mushroom hunting and very excited to get out there and find some mushrooms!
Do you have any tips on what mushrooms are in season and where my wife and I could hunt?
We live in Payson and would appreciate any tips or pointers on where we can drive to get started hunting?
Any advice is welcome!
Thank you in advance.
