Disappointing Maitake hunt

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , — WildArkansas @ 3:06 am

We have been hunting for the past two days and still have not found maitake or chicken of the woods.

This is a first in the past four years. I always find maitake.

The forested areas we’ve been hunting in are quite dry, probably because we’ve had such little rain in the past few months.

Nevertheless, we’re going to keep looking.

If you happen to find maitake or chicken of the woods in this area (Siloam Springs) please send photos to us. Boast and let us know how much you have found…

Is it an egg?

An amazing find during today’s forage; the nest egg gourd aka curcurbita pepo var. ovifera.

The plants took up an amazing amount of space right in the middle of the forest. We gathered several of the “eggs” and brought them home for research and to show others the incredible find.
