Harvesters are gearing up for the start of the Matsutake mushroom season in Oregon.

Starting Tuesday, commercial harvesters — those looking to get mushrooms for resale — can pick on the Deschutes, Fremont-Winema, Umpqua and Willamette national forests.

Permits cost $200 for the 62-day season, $100 for a half season or $8 per day with a three-day minimum.

Harvesters must be at least 18 years old and have a valid id to buy a permit at select ranger district offices
