    I'm a spanish truffle hunter specialized with the black truffles (tuber melanosporum)... I know there is all kind of truffles around the world, but I'm very curious about which species of truffles you can find naturally in US? With which kind of trees they do symbiosis? What do you use to find them (dogs? pigs? fly? other way?)

    People hunt mushrooms in Minnesota a lot, too. It's a big deal every year. Always thought "Hunting" was a weird term for mushrooms. Someone dies every year, too. Wrong 'shroom.
