I picked about 40 small to medium sized black morel mushrooms here in my yard this year. Is Wyoming too dry for morels or other edible wild mushrooms? Has anyone gone hunting for them? I see the mushroom farm in Shoshoni is still plugging along.

There are all kinds of mushrooms this year. Looks like a bumper crop of wild stuff. Helped pick about 200 Morels yesterday.

Do they grow best in aspen groves? Or swampy? Our yard used to have a lot of aspen, but we cleared most of it.. this is the first I've ever seen them.

The best way to describe it is to say, "Everywhere." hahaha Those I picked yesterday, was in the town park, right where they had mowed on Thursday. Nothing but cottonwoods, and it's not swampy.

What do meadow mushrooms taste like?

I've never ventured to pick mushrooms in the wild before, after being warned of poisonous ones when I was a kid.

they close to the white ones you buy in the store. but seem to get a more flavor if you dry them. They grow in the big round fairy rings

Froggie... there is a Facebook page dedicated to Wyoming mushrooms. You can find it here...

https://www.facebook.com/wyoming.mushrooms

Never looked for any myself (always afraid I'd accidentally pick some variety of a Death Angel or something like that and off myself during a spaghetti dinner that included my wild mushrooms). :-)

Thanks for the link Tyster. I'm going to dry some of the mushrooms I picked for use at a later date, and we're going to enjoy the rest when my sister and brother in law come for the weekend. The weather is cool, damp, and the shrooms keep appearing. I'll keep on picking.

Also, I agree, morels are probably the only ones I'd feel safe picking/eating, without another experienced person around showing me other edibles. My mom said they used to pick and eat giant puffball mushrooms when we lived in Michigan.
