Have you ever been out mushroom hunting before? If so, what mushrooms and where?

Yes. Besides co-leading the fall coastal foray with PMH, I have been on some hunts organized by a local conservation group. In the recent years I have hunted solo on Mt Hood and the north Oregon coastal range. Mostly chanterelles on organized hunts but boletes, matsutakes, and morels on my solo hunts.

Are you familiar with forging for any other edibles? If so, what and where?!

I know a few herbs and berries.

Absolutely everyone can share something with the group! What can you share? Recipes? Storage Ideas? Knowledge of identifyng? Knowledge of areas to hunt? Using these edible materials? If so, what would you be willing to share?

As a novice, my information is basic and my experience is somewhat limited, but I am willing to share. I strongly encourage new 'shroomers to start out learning to ID a few known edibles that have only few toxic lookalikes and without any deadly lookalikes. Know ID characteristics of the lookalikes as well as the edibles. Remember to ID every mushroom in your basket. Double check all information by using reliable sources in print, and perhaps also by asking experienced members of a mycological society for help. Ultimately, the decision to consume is yours alone so make that decision wisely. Remember the adage about old vs bold 'shroomers.


Hello all. I am an novice shroomer seeking mycological knowledge and new edibles. I have become familiar with king boletes, matsutakes, morels, & blewits. I co-lead a coastal foray with this group this fall & look forward to leading other trips.

What Matt I. is saying about this Meetup Group

Portland Mushroom Hunters are hip to the mycelial groove of the humongous fungus and its cosmic mycorrhizal network.
