The hen harvest has begun.
Nice work. I intend to get out this weekend to look as well. Nice specimens

Whew, good to see!
Had to add 1 more to my collection this morning. A little over 8lbs.
I put in a few miles in an oak forest this morning. Didn't see a single hen
I hear ya man, it seems odd. So in the UP, down by the border, the NELP, and these guys in the SE area of the state finding them by now is concerning to me. I have looked in several different places in Kent county and only honey and chickens were/are up. Really weird.
In the GR area we had a really hot and dry summer, I remember there being rain more often to the North, South, and East of here. I believe it is as much the WX leading up to a season, as is the WX during the season that matters, probably more so.
Thinking of taking a ride tomorrow.
Patients my Friend, the season is just beginning. I have found them as early as the last week in
August, and as late as mid November.
I just remember a couple years ago is all.....that hurt.
Found a few old oysters today, still no hens. Bummer. Got that chicken from Friday I am gonna deep fry soon though, yummy!
I've found two down south and they both dried up before they could grow. Need rain badly here!
We were getting plenty of rain but it's now dry as heck. Burning ban just went on today in alcona. Not sure if the tiny hens are gonna make it without some more moisture. Good luck guy's.
A few more to put up. Starting to run out of freezer space.
they are really coming on now along the Michiana line. I've cleaned six this week and letting many more grow. Gonna be a banner year for hens!
Kent county is on the map, well where I go anyways. Got 2, I wish it was before all the rain and dirt got kicked up on them but I'll take what I can get. If I salvage half of these I am going to be pleased. I'm telling you: Vacuum pack-freeze, thaw, clean, saute with onion and put on a toasted rye cheese burger!
So one of my spots has been getting hammered the last 2 seasons. I mean this cat was slicing them off before they ever expanded out, like maybe a day or 2 growth. Now at that spot, I see nothing at those trees when it is usually on with the other spot I got these from. I wonder if it's been ruined by that? I don't have near the hen experience as I do morels so I am just guessing.
WOO HOO!!! I don't have to kill myself.....
I believe there is something out of order with your process, mine works like this.
1--Clean (chances are you are going to throw them out remembering how dirty they are)
2--Freeze ( assures a good seal, will not draw out the water that is in them)
3--Vacuum pack (100% seal)
4--Sautee No need to thaw, right in the pan with the onions, butter, oil s&p,garlic,etc.(now the fun begins)
Good luck all.
