Do you shed hunt before or after you use prescribed fire in an area?

When you burn a area do you shed hunt it first and do you still find morel mushrooms in the part that you burn?


I prefer to shed hunt after an area is burned!  It’s much easier to find sheds after an area has been burned and rain (to wash the black of the antlers).

The response of mushrooms depends on the timing of the fire.
