      That plastic thing looks good on your wall Ha ha ha and like you said the fish you released is free to grow bigger, hence giants. The taxidermist did an great ...more job painting your fish.
    6. Can't please 'em all Brother!!!
    7. It's a replica! Catch and release only where it was caught! Hence, they get to be GIANTS!

      Posted a pic just now guess looks pretty bad after your two posts but the 4 I found sure tasted good
    2. Allen, be careful of the False Morel which have a long stem and smaller cap! They tend to be a lot darker. You don't want to eat them!

      I think I need some lessons I actually found 4 in my yard while mowing almost chopped them up but we're the first 4 ever found
    4. b ripoer 0
      that sounds better than hang drying them ha ha yummmmmmmy
    5. Thanks B! Long process: pat dry with paper towels, roll in flour, dip in egg, roll in Club Cracker crumbs. Set on a cookie sheet with wax paper on it. Make sure ...more they are NOT touching. After 6-8 hours they should be frozen solid. Then I put in a vacuum sealed bag...... Bam! Good til Christmas!!!!πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ€€πŸ€€πŸ€€πŸ€€ The key is to make sure that the egg is completely encased around the flour! And they have to be frozen solid before bagging, otherwise you end up with a frozen ball of shrooms!

I live in Iowa City, IA. Love to fish for anything that swims! Have the Iowa River close by and lots of farm ponds. Travel north every year ...more for ice fishing trip and once during the summer. Can't wait to try deep sea fishing and notch that one off of my bucket list.
