The fall season in Southern Ontario offers opportunities to get out into the wild and enjoy a number of activities, often many at the same time. My buddy Dave and I headed out recently to take part of this seasonal overlap. With a canoe on the roof of the car, rods and a shot-gun in the back, and a mushroom field guide-book in hand we headed out on some crown land north of Kingston. Our aim was to target walleye early, stop periodically to see if we could take advantage of the early goose season, and walk some public land to see if we could find some edible mushrooms.
Unfortunately, the goose hunt didn’t really pan out and our fishing success was limited to one walleye and a few bass. Thankfully the mushroom hunting salvaged the trip as we found a large number of lobster mushrooms and a few chanterelles among many other curious fungal species. Pictures have been included below for your viewing pleasure.
Cheers from the wild,
