Hunting in the mountains
    #2532315 - 04/06/04 06:20 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I can't find any information about hunting for shrooms in a high plains desert climate. I'll be picking around 8,000 ft. It only really gets to about 60f for a high, but it has been extremely rainy and moist lately. Thanks for the input.

Not sure whereabouts you are but the mountains in New Mexico are supposed to have some of the best edible hunting grounds in the summer.

You mean in the san juan mountains? They are northern new mexico into southern colorado. If so great because I live in the north tip of the san juan range, southwest colorado. The other day i found acouple very little shrooms growing on a big log on a avalanche slide path. One had gills the other had little holes instead of gills... looked like a beehive ontop of a mushroom stem.

Anyways if anyone has any info on mushroom hunting above 5,000ft (above 7,000ft would be better) that would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Telluride is north colorado, because of all the mountain passes the drive is around 12 hours. Like I said I live in the south west part of colorado. This place looks more like new mexico than colorado... rolling hills w/ mountain sage.

The Telluride mushroom festival however is a extraordinary experience :smile: , though a bit pricey.

The ones with pores would be what you're looking for, Boletes. Your mountains are notorious for the bolete season. They aren't active but good edibles when you find the right ones.
Some are poisonous though so make sure you have an exact ID.

Based on this map, I would have described Telluride as being in southwestern Colorado.

The primary thing to remember when mushroom hunting is habitat. The areas covered with sage are not known for lots of mushrooms. You'll mostly find things like puffballs there. If you want to find mushrooms you need to go to areas with trees. Of course, the more moisture, the better. If the area is dry, spend your time near streams and lakes.

There are plenty of mushrooms above 7000 feet. I do most of my hunting above 7000 feet, and often find lots of good mushrooms within 1000 feet of timberline.

Morel season should be underway in your area right now. Try hunting along streams.

The big season down there should be August, especially if the monsoon rains are doing well.

Happy mushrooming!
