Good places to hunt in near Columbus/Brown County/Bloomington this time of year

Recommended Posts

New here and have hunted morels only in the Spring. Went up to New Brunswick a couple of weeks ago and found several boletes and a stunning King Bolete. Where can one find a good spot to hunt in the Columbus/Brown County/Bloomington area and what edible mushrooms should we look for?

Look in any wooded area a couple of days after a soaking rain. I've found state parks and state forests to be good hunting grounds...but I occasionally turn up edibles in my own backyard. Also, get a good book and study up...I recommend "Edible Wild Mushrooms of Illinois and Surrounding States" as a good beginner's book. I've found that the more edible mushrooms I'm able to identify the more "luck" I have.
