    Does anyone on here pick wild mushrooms? I went plinkin' last weekend and brought home a big bag of Chanterelles. I went off highway 26 (about mile post 32)...Salmonberry and Section 10 roads. Good eats!

    Sure. Now is the time. Wait a couple more weeks and there will be snow. For good.

    Looks like Fly Amanita to me, I am almost sure of the identification and that they are poisonous. Never eat any mushrooms if you have any doubt at all about their identification and edibility.

    FYI...Permit Needed to Harvest Wild Mushrooms While on routine patrol in the Mt.
    Hood National Forest, Sgt. Allori
    (Portland) stopped to talk to two
    target shooters after observing one of
    them shoot across the road. Allori
    found both in possession of a large
    amount of chanterelle mushrooms.
    Eventually, four other subjects
    emerged from the forest, all of whom
    had been picking mushrooms. Allori cited two subjects for Unlawful
    Possession of Minor Forest Products—Mushrooms and seized
    48.75 gallons of chanterelle mushrooms. For ORS 164.813 on cutting
    and transporting special forest products, please click here. For
    information on wild mushrooms in Oregon, including habitat, usage,
    tips for collecting and storing, and species, please click here.

    Hmm, so looks like anything over a gallon is technically illegal even if it is for personal use:nuts: that's stupid, a gallon is only enough for one, maybe two dinners, and not nearly enough to dry for the winter.
