    Look for them to be under fir, spruce and hemlock. Look for areas away from ferns and alder. Especially along exposed root systems around steep edges. Moss is good, it holds the moisture. There are a few that look close, be careful. If the mushroom is slimy, that's not it. Look at the underside, make sure the "veins" branch and branch again. They tend to grow together, if you find one,, there's more. That Golden biscuit look gets easy to spot after you get used to it. Yes it's a little early, but their up, I picked a couple gallons yesterday. Simmered, threw in some cream of chicken, garlic, onion powder, salt and pepper. Slathered the stuff over breaded baked pork chops and Yum!

    There are many resources available here on the www that will help, but nothings better than a knowledgeable teacher. Once you figure it out you'll always have your head on a swivel while hunting. Enjoy.
