Mushroom hunters must stay out of the turkey woods until 1 p.m.

Morel and turkey hunters will each have their time in the woods this spring.

But at state-managed sites where turkey hunting is allowed in April and May, mushroom hunters and other visitors must wait until 1 p.m.

Hunting areas are closed to activities other than turkey hunting from one-half hour before sunrise until 1 p.m. daily during the spring turkey season.

Turkey hunting closes May 9 in the south zone and May 16 in the north zone.

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources says the rule is in place for safety reasons.

No license is required for mushroom collecting in Illinois, although collectors always need landowner permission and, on public sites, must adhere to approved collecting regulations and hours.

Collection of mushrooms is allowed in many IDNR state parks and recreation areas, but it is prohibited in any dedicated nature preserves.

Mushroom hunters should call the site office for information on site-specific regulations regarding mushroom collecting.
