The most comfortable and practical mushroom hunting bag on the market. Morel Mushrooms… Oh My God! The flavor, they are undeniably delicious!
I am an avid Morel Mushroom hunter. Mushroom hunting, the sport itself is simple at first thought. But if you break it down, there is a lot to it that makes a successful hunt. For instance some states in USA are simply not as productive as others and if you live in one of those states you have to travel to pick a good crop of morel mushrooms. I live in northern Indiana, and although it is a decent morel mushroom picking state, I choose to travel to better areas and go deeper into the larger forests then to compete with thousands of local hunters. While spending many morel mushroom hunting seasons in the woods, I started designing different mushroom hunting products.
A few years ago I designed My Lucky Shrooming Bag. The most comfortable and practical mushroom hunting bag.
This is a 15 x 17 inch mushroom hunting bag made out of tough tear resistant mesh used by scuba divers around sharp reefs. It has a thick very comfortable adjustable strap that you can adjust into a handle or over the shoulder. We also added the solid bottom to protect the morels or any other wild mushrooms from crushing as the bag gets filled. The mesh we use is thicker with smaller holes which also protects your mushrooms from grating, while still spreads the spores as you walk through the woods. This mushroom hunting bag hangs flat up against your body for easy and fast movement through the woods. Then as you start filling it, it will expand and protect your precious morel mushrooms or any wild mushroom that you harvest.
It is proudly made in the USA. I have been working with this company for a while to perfect them, just got them in right at the peak of my mushroom hunting season. Took a few bags for a test run.. I am very very happy with how they turned out! I was even lucky enough to fill it up under 2 elm trees.
Another awesome feature about this bag is I was able to wear it over across my body so as I was picking morels, the bag was right in front of my chest to put the mushrooms in, which freed up both of my hands for picking. And as I moved through the woods at a decent speed the bag hangs just a bit higher which allows me to move fast without smacking the bag around my legs with precious morel mushrooms.
The bag comes with a 8 inch pocket that reads “My Lucky Shrooming Bag”. You can fold the bag & the strap into the pocket for off season storage.
We are very proud of this design, hope you enjoy it as well.
The mesh is needed when you pick morel mushrooms to release the spores so they plant elsewhere, start a new mycelium growth & keep producing mushrooms in the same as well as new areas. Using a mesh bag also keeps your mushrooms fresh. Plastic bags will suffocate the mushrooms and they will start the spoiling process. Onion/grapefruit bags are not designed for delicate spongy morel mushrooms so they end up grating the morels.
The mesh is very sturdy. We use high quality mesh material so you don’t have to worry about ripping your mushroom bag with precious morel mushrooms in it.
I run through the woods from spot to spot due to the season being so short & don’t want to worry about ripping one of these bags when they snag on the limbs.
Unique and thoughtful gift for any mushroom hunter.
