Hunting Morels in Texas Mushroom identification and research
http://www.gsmyco.org/ Gulf Coast Myco Society
Just found your website. I do not have any experience collecting or identifying mushrooms. However, I have a curious mind and an adventurous nature. I would love to become involved with a mycology club in the DFW area. If you have any contacts, I would appreciate it.
Thanks and have a great day.
I’m interested as well but other than Youtube videos and seeing mushrooms on the ground and wondering how quickly I would die if I ate them I have no experience. So Tammy if you find a group or anyone that’s willing to show newbies the ropes please let me know.
I live on a farm southwest of Houston, and would enjoy hunting and/or hosting a hunt for edible mushrooms around here.
Just read your posting, and although it was posted in December 2011, I have only lived in Texas since Aug. 2011. I am a retired Fire Communications Officer from Kansas City Missouri. How far Southwest of Houston are you? I live just south of Hockley, and I would like to learn more about the mushrooming in this area. Sincerely; Gary
I’m austin, way west of Houston.
I would like to locate a group which goes out hunting for mushrooms and also would teach how to identify edible and poisonous ones.. thanx:) It would be a great way to learn foraging atleast one wild food source.. also are there any other groups which teach foraging wild plants and nuts, fruit etc?
Oh yeah.. I live in Tyler Texas..
I recently moved back to the great state of Texas after 23 yrs in Western Co where mushrooms are bountiful under the right circumstances of course. I’m very interested in learning what types of edible mushrooms are available here, when they’re available and where.
Hi I live in Missouri City. I have great experience with mushrooms from Europe and I would love to hunt them here in TX. Anyone close to Missouri City interested in hunting them?
I live in League City, where the mushrooms are popping up all over lately. Does anyone have a good guide to recommend?
I’m new of houston and I’m looking around some edible mushroom.
With my wife and my two daughters we like to walk in the forest.
Since I believe you are Italian would be nice to be in contact.
Yes! I just asked, on another site, if there are any guided mushroom hunting “classes” in the Houston area. I live in Missouri City too but know nothing about identifying mushrooms.
I live @ beltway @ Memorial, I’m interested.
I am a photographer interested in publishing a book of mushrooms of east texas and I need an expert at identifying the mushrooms in a team publishing effort.
Please contact me at email@example.com if you know your east texas mushrooms.
I’m new to the area and have a passionate curiosity on hunting mushrooms. My knowledge is basically nonexistent when it comes to identifying wild mushrooms but I would love to learn! Im in Humble TX until mid July and I really want to do some exploring before I leave! Any suggestions would be much appreciated! Thank you!
I’m a Dallas resident and a mushroom fiend and I was wondering if there are any area organizations or just informal groups that organize mushroom hunting classes or activities. I have no experience with foraging and would like to be tutored in it before I go off wandering on my own.
I live in Dallas and am eager to begin mushroom hunting. I’m not a practiced forager, so am looking for clubs or organizations that allow neophytes to tag along. I would be happy to travel anywhere in the DFW area or in East Texas.
Hey does anyone live in San Antonio or Austin? I want a mushroom foraging pal!
Cynthia, morels are happening right now in Austin, and should be in SA. Found 150 today.
I have a daughter who lives in Austin. I plan on going to Austin in June to visit her and want to look in the greenbelts there.
I would like to find mushrooms in the San Antonio area especially morels.
Morels are happening right now.
Gathering morels in Bosque county now
Do you lead hunts? I am on the western side of Bexar county and a small purple gilled mushroom is popping up now. It has sweet earthy smell but I can’t get pollen. I am going to try again. I can send you pictures. Let me know. I have collected a few boletes that I know are safe but did not find any morels. A rancher near Utopia told me he had some on his place in March. Is it too late for morels this year?
I would love to get together with someone local. Contact at firstname.lastname@example.org

Are there any mushroom id instructors in the Houston area? I would love to learn what is available here. Most websites reference the east coast.
Taking a break from Utah’s cold weather and visiting Galveston mid November. Would love to go out looking for some mushrooms with someone. I have no idea as of yet what or where to look for mushrooms, down there. First time in Texas, so don’t know what to expect. Any help would be much appreciated.
