Need a little help with the turkey tail. I dunno how to cook it or anything about it. Been looking online but I still ain't figured out if ya soak it like morals or what
They have to be picked young and tender to be any good. Can’t tell from the pic if they will be tender. Some people call those pheasant backs. I’ve tried cutting them into thin strips and sautéed in garlic butter. Probably my least favorite wild shroom to eat. Check online under pheasant backs. Those are some awesome yellows you’ve been picking!

Seems I can never cut a pheasant back thin enough to make it chewable lol

Thanks. I finally found how to store em and got em put in a paper bag in the fridge till I can try them tomorrow
I got some good advice from @Recurve78 and tried just a little bit of the pheasants back I found last year. Sometimes different types of mushrooms affect folks differently. The pheasant backs gave me a good case of the trots. I fixed a small bit a couple different ways. They were all about like eating old cut up boot leather.

Yeah I figure I'm gonna try really small amounts as well a few different ways. My buddy advised me to try a small amount but we never discussed how to clean em or nothing. If I like em I'll go back if not they can rot where they are growing. I'd say I seen 50 or more if I can just really where they all were

Saw 3 box turtles in the woods today, heard some gobblers and a first for me, jumped a covey of wood cocks. One flew up and then 4 more followed. Must be mating season for them. Never jumped more than one at a time before.

My niece went back and checked today where we got the last batch of 76 at and found another 13. I was tied up with yard work and couldn't go. I did try the pheasant back today. I like em but ain't gonna make a special trip to just go pick them. Only 12 pictured as they stepped on one and tore it to pieces as ya can see a few are mangled I think they dropped the bag and stepped on it
