Information on working terriers, dogs, natural history, hunting, and the environment, with occasional political commentary as I see fit. This web log is associated with the Terrierman.com web site.
Just curious: As a man who obviously spends a lot of time in the woods, do you ever hunt for morel mushrooms? It's one of my favorite things to do in March/April and was curious if you do.
I did when I was in college. Hunted Morels and Pleurotis Ostreatus in the Spring and almost everything else in the Fall. I actually do not like the taste of mushrooms much, but I very much liked the hunting and occasional ID issues. As you know, once you have 6-12 mushrooms species under your belt taxanomically, you tend to stay with those. Back in my youth, the only mushrooms you could get in the US were agaricus bisporus, so the fact that I could show up with loads of half a dozen others made my seem smarter and more of an exotic than I am.
