    They say not to "pull" mushrooms if you want more in the future. The thought is you will pull out the mycelium (roots) but they are a vast network and chances of that are very slim. There is a much simpler reason to cut mushrooms at the base instead of pulling them: It keeps the dirt out of your mushroom basket. You want to try to avoid washing them if you can so keeping them clean is a great start. At this time of the year you can find: black trumpets (absolute favorite), various boletes like the king and chrome foot and smooth stalk, puff balls, giant puff balls, chicken of the woods, fall oyster mushrooms, hedgehogs, maybe the odd yellow chantarelle and lobster mushroom (although it's getting a bit late for them).
    Focus on integrity and eventually your name will be its own currency.

    I know my neighbour trapper was picking Chanterelle I think a month ago.
    He gets them in a Jack pine forest off the moss covered ground.
    I think I have a pic somewhere.

    A foraging sub-forum has been suggested in the past. For what it's worth, I am definitely for it.

    I also have the book you recommended. It's a great place to start if you are getting into foraging for mushrooms.

    WOW! Nice! That is a species I only found once and they were too old. What is the second picture? All cut up for drying?

    Yep all washed. Blanched in boiling water and ready for the freezer. They freeze very well and are excellent on the plate. These were picked on public land in Illinois. We make the trek there annually on our Thanksgiving weekend. We found double this amount last year...

    I spotted the odd Shaggy Mane before this crappy weather hit but maybe on the weekend when it warms up they may pop up.
    Good Luck & Good Hunting !
