    Found about 20 greys/ small yellows early this morning and a whole mess of deer shields, with one of my sons, here in Lasalle County. Should be good this weekend.

    What are deer shields or did you mean sheds?

    Deer shield/ fawn mushrooms. Brownish curved cap when they first pop. Have a slight radish taste to them so I like to use them in stock or caramelize them. Edit: Forgot to mention that they have close white gills (slightly pink when mature) with a ring separating the stem from the gills.

    This might be one didn’t do a spore print but doesn’t have a defined circle around the gills near the stem nor would I EAT ANY WILD MUSHROOM

    Doesn't look like it. No defined ring between the stem and gills. Also those gills look tan not white or pinkish. I've been collecting and eating deer shields for over 35 years. Edit: Wife & I still have tickets to the postponed TOOL Moline show. Saw them at the UC over the winter. Were you gonna go to that Moline show too?

    Should have a good amount out there. The main entrances have been closed due to the quarantine. I would assume some people have probably parked their car as close to the park as possible to find some though. Not sure if there will be a mass of people out there friday morning or not. If you are going to make it that way, I would get there early.

    I have a huge patch of the skinny leaved variety that grow around a tree in my back yard every year. I like cutting them up in my salad.

    I was in the woods before dawn but left about 7:30am. The wind picked up and after i heard the second very large branch crash to the ground, it seemed like a good time to get the Hell out of Dodge.
