Let’s extend MOTW. Tom Billings sent this massive hen-of the woods that his brother-in-law, Jim Aaron, found in LaPorte County, Indiana. Aaron sent another photo of a table full from the same spot last year (see below).

Just before the snow last week, Joseph Christopher Alfe posted that blewits, hericium, oysters and some aborted entoloma are still up.

MOTW, the celebration of mushroom gathering (the stories matter) around Chicago outdoors, runs Wednesdays in the Sun-Times as warranted. Submit nominations by message on Facebook (Dale Bowman), on Twitter (@BowmanOutside) and Instagram (@BowmanOutside) or email (BowmanOutside@gmail.com).
