    In my experience, the farmers were a hell of a lot bigger concern than the cattle. We got busted once wandering through a field on a lazy Sunday by the farmer who owned the place. Fortune smiled on us that day though. As it turned out, the farmer's daughter accompanied her father in our pursuit and when they eventually caught up to us we realized we knew each other from school. After some hasty apologies for the trespassing, he frankly told us not to come back but made no effort to force us to ditch the booty. That was a good day.

    Morels were out early this year in our area with our crazy pogo stick weather. Then it got very dry and that was it for picking. Have a couple of bags of frozen in the fridge but they were very sandy even after brushing and soaking. Made some nice pasta sauce with added ramps we found in town.

    Yellow Elanor has an entertaining and educational channel on this subject. Just look her up on Youtube.

    Aside from the morels we're too chicken to pick anything else.

    My yard has been a fungus experiment in progress this year. The variety has been amazing, some days there are 20 or more different types of mushrooms.

    Anyone know what this is? It looks similar to Lions mane, but it was on some sort of dead conifer. Lions mane only grow in hardwood, no?

    Damn dude that is a healthy mushroom

    I'm 95% certain that is Lion's Mane - according to Miller's book North American Mushrooms they can grow on hardwood and on conifer. The only other thing that would be close might be a Ramaria species, but my money is on Hericium (lion's mane).

    There is one move i always do when i am uncertain. Take a lil bit. Leave it in your mouth for 15min. If it gets bitter/bad it is a nono.
    Most of the time, i am just curious. And then i curse for putting strange unknown fungi in my mouth : )

    unfortunately, that's not always indicative. many poisonous mushrooms are sweet tasting (cortinarius species for example). you can always do the 'increased exposure' methodology, but that certainly isn't foolproof.

    putting mushrooms in your mouth is not inherently dangerous, and it can be a good indicator - for example, the best way to tell safe russula species vs dangerous ones is by putting it in your mouth. safe russula will be sweet like almonds, dangerous russula will taste like anything from arugula to jalapeno/serrano. like unmistakably hot.


    pics, unrelated: lactarius deliciosus (which lives up to its name) and two amanitas muscaria ssp formosa, the unique yellow muscaria that is found only in Utah (among the biggest I've seen!!),

    it's impossible to say without seeing the stem and the underside of the cap, but it's very likely that it is a birch/Aspen bolete (Leccinum insigne). if the underside looks like a sponge instead of gills, it's a bolete. fantastic eating - we harvested and dried like 10lbs of them and use them for soup base.

    Iíve been finding a ton of mushrooms, but I havenít gotten over my fear of them. I had my stomach pumped from eating some when I was a kid, so even nearly positive identification leaves enough doubt that I avoid them.

    Totally agree. If that is a bolete (spongy bottom) and isn't wormie, that's a score.

    Here's my haul from yesterday. Just went on a bike ride (Shangri-la, awesome ride btw), and there they were. A couple of boletes, some chantrelles and a caulifower. Great haul for not even thinking about picking anything before the ride. Gaia provides, yo!

    Nice Gary!! Jealous of the chanterelles.

    ZZZ, the first two you posted are russula species. If they taste at all hot or spicy, they're dangerous. If they are sweet, they should be edible.

    Nice lobsters!. Haven't seen them pop here yet, but they should be coming out any time now. Need to start visiting my matsutake spots too.

    Is there anything that looks like this and has the spongy look that is poisonous?

    I get a lot of these on the lawn. I pick and toss them before the dog goes out.

    Right you are man. My bad. I suppose you're supposed to know your species before you eat em eh? What a Moran. To my defence I did know they were edible as I'd eaten them before without dying.

    Yes there is, but not where I live. However I think you should listen to BCmtnhound, and not me...
