Most of the Pholiota are not recommended for the table because they cause gastric upsets, and also are pretty hard to distinguish, which is which. For instance some people can eat them with no ill effects and some eat them and become ill, even though it's the same mushroom. Pholiota squarrosa is edible but has an almost identical look-alike that is poisonous. To me it's not worth taking a chance.

Yes Jack, I am loving it. It hasn't sunk in completely yet, but having every day off to hunt deer,mushrooms and fish is great! !! I only had 12 days of vacation for the last 15 years. Now when I on vacation I can go for 3 or 4 weeks at a time instead of 1. I already have 3 shrooming trips planned up your way this spring. Never really hunted for the early black shrooms, but I am this year.

looks like we almost have enough retired old dudes to start our own forum...lmao
in the off season we could discuss aching backs, stiff joints, and joints that aren't as stiff as they used to be...hehe
